I want to ask you guys and arn a question. I see rankings (if thats what you call them) next to some peoples screen names. Like if I am correct dukestreet has one. And on some names next to it I see like ummm... "Moderator" or "Demi-God" How does one get these titiles? I'd sure like to know. What are the duties/responsibilities of these people. I would really like to know. Maybe I can be one one day :) The problem is I'm at school most of the day so I can't keep my eyes on the fourms 24/7, but who can, besides arn that is. :D

The chips used in the old classic and up macs are called the Motorola 68000 series Macs used the 68000, 68020, 68030, and 68040. If I missed one please let me know. Is it true that these are what these numbers represent in the titles?

Actually, they start with the first Apple -- the Apple I -- which used the 6502 processor.

See this post for more details.

The processor designations just keep increasing as the post counts increase. jefhatfield is the highest poster who is not a Demi-God, and he is currently a 68040.

That was an interesting thread. Thanks.
