    People often post milestones here, so here's another one to add to the list.

    Around 7:30PM EDT, MR had it's 3000000th search.
    And, yes, I'll admit I made most of the last 50 or so.
    FWIW, in the past 15 minutes, we've added another 86 or so.

    I would estimate that about 80+% of those are from people (like me) that habitually click 'New Posts' 100 times a day! :D

    God. Imagine if people actually used the search function. We'd be at 10 mil., easy.

    What are the numbers on mroogle, edesign?

    I only hit it ~20 times a day.

    2 years and 5ish months x 20 a day = ~17,600 from me! ;)

    That's more than Google has had in its entire history!

    Oh wait, I missed a decimal point. Make that more than Google has had since this thread started!

    But good for MacRumors anyway. :D

    I don't know if it's just me and I'm in a particularly jovial mood, but it seems there are less threads in the troubleshooting forums that are blatant double-ups. In other words, people seem to be searching before posting their problems more often now, which is terribly cool. :cool:

    *Can't help but notice that there have been more searches than posts*

    See, some of us do search rather than post without searching ;)

    Yeah, it's getting lonely in there. I'll have to start punching holes in my own Macs and asking whether AppleCare covers me... :D

    Not that I even have AppleCare... :confused:
