    Nice to know that Dr. Pande drops in every once in a while!

    Will make that milestone even more fun :)

    I think he's congratulating us on almost being to 1 billion and looking forward to our 10 billion (in 13 years!).

    That's really nice from him. Wasn't even aware he joined back in 2004 ! I looked into his posts. Was surprised to read that story.
    Even better to see we contribute strongly to the project.

    So 10bn ... We just need to buy tomorrow some 100 new Mac Pro "R2D2" and run BAs; that should be simple enough :D
