Um ... 66 thousandth member?

Or, he has a really cool shirt?

Or, because he's asking to be spammed? :D

Do tell!

His member number is 2^16, or 65536. As a geek, Doctor Q appreciates the whole 2^x concept, hence why he showed member numbers 16384 (2^14), 32768 (2^15), and 2 (2^1).

At least that's my guess :p

Very impressive, but I'm guessing you knew something we didn't. If you didn't know Doctor Q surely there's no way you would have gotten that, so how did you know?

It's too bad we don't have a suitable prize for tomrom1@mac.com, like they do when the 1,000,000th customer walks into a department store.

Maybe somebody will donate one of these to give him:

The only thing I knew was tomrom1@mac.com's member ID from the link provided by Doctor Q.

That and, truth be told, I'm a geek too so I immediately recognized the "significance" of 65536. I think it'll be awhile for member ID 2^17, though... :D

I wonder if he'll find this thread. That would be interesting.
That's his prize - his very own thread.

Dr Q, did you sign up that account by yourself? I smell conspiracy.... :D :D :D :p
I say we all refer to Doctor Q simply as "Tom" from now on. It will be an inside joke for anyone geeky enough to make it through this thread.

Sounds like fun. :D

Question: How do you see a members number?

So MacRumors has 66,000+ members? Great!:D

But's here's the real question: how many of these members are "active," meaning, how many post on a regular basis, say, once every two weeks, at least.
