Well, well, well...it has finally happened.

dukestreet has taken the lead from eyelikeart (albeit temporarily). This is quite a momentous occasion.

We're going to see this lead bounce back and forth for a while guys.

I just want to say to both of these guys that their presence here only makes our community stronger, and more fun/interesting. Whichever one of you is in first, you're both class acts and great to have on the boards.:)

Sorry for the Double post, but I'd like to point out that Eyelikeart is shamelessly using his insomnia to pass Duke.....Duke will wake up with like 30 posts less then Eye....and he'll still be here posting...;)

Personally, I think Jello is gonna pass everyone by the end of the summer...

you say you will, but come august it'll be a whole other story....bring it :p

Yeah, it's tough to get an accurate curve since we don't have your guys' posts delineated at certain dates, and I'm not about to go search through all of your posts to see when you hit 100, 500, etc.

Am I missing something here?:confused:

Are you referring to me or everyone in general with that demi-God thing?

In any case, that's another reason to pressure people to sign up: rare/unique photos of the MacRumors crew.

I'll be taking loads of photos with my new digital camera when I go camping in a couple of weeks, and I'll gladly share those with you guys.

Actually I'm going up to Yellowstone, so it should be very pretty up there.

I think we should all refrain from posting pictures in the public forums. Keep them in the private area. So, pay up, and you get to see pictures of the other demi's in compromising positions (all the more reason to keep you wallet hidden away :p).

have to wait and see what happens after the things finished. It might end up being a dual use room, which would be fine by me. And if I get a new machine in 03, I'll be able to keep it down there. The drafting table might go into storage for a couple years until the addition is built. I can live with that and use it as leverage to get a new machine with 3 monitors....

Mr. Anderson
Jun 10, 2002, 09:08 AM
I've seen several people on the net who have things of that nature. I'll most likely go with the 17" or if they come out with it the 19" which I'm guessing will be the wide format and the same height as a 17" but wider. It will be nice and very practical. It won't cost more than a single 23", so you get more realestate.

Like I said, just having some fun on a slow Sunday night...and it's kinda cool to see how the growth of the site is reflected in your guys' post count.

LMAO! Unless the top dogs here on the forums work on the Hubble Space Telescope in space for some part of the year, and unless you start java-nating yourself, we will continue to see no competition.

However, I see that many people here on the forums have no work/class during the summer. When we have free time, will become posting machines. And I will try to hit 4 digits by or a little after my birthday.

How come duke has been posting so much? He jumped way in front of us.

I have considerably more time on my hands now that it is summer and will be posting a lot more. I am more proud of the fact that I have been here so long and remember when most of the top posters were newbies (with a few exceptions). I am determined to get an avatar in the next few weeks, I've been here forever and want something to show for it.

asurace, what type of avatar do you have in mind? Or am I going to guess?

It's just a shame I really cannot post too much more often, since I am pretty much stuffed with some big time reviewing for my exams. Actually, a large part of my reviewing is in Honors Chemistry. I must have the toughest teacher in the whole building... he/she gives so much work to do. Once all this is over, I will post a lot more.

Well, at least it's worth it. :)

That's an idea. duke seems to have WAYYYY too much time on his hands.
I actually did ask duke about avatars in a PM but I have reason to dobut that it got through.

King Cobra
Jun 10, 2002, 08:33 PM
Well, asurace, if you feel that this is the case, then try something from the heart. Try to find something you most feel strongly about (a car, a pet, a toy) and find a creative way to display how to describe yourself using it. You can also display messages in animated gifs.

Basically, I think that the best avatars come from deep down. Take what you think best represents you and make it into an avatar. This is probably something no one can help you with, but I will have you down on my list of who's avatars I am looking out for.

Tell me what you think.

I'll have to get back to you on that one. I'll find something interesting. In a couple of weeks you'll all get to see what I come up with.
