    I'm having a birthday; sort of...

    Happy milestone to meee, happy milestone to meee,
    Happy milestone to Micronnnn,
    Happy milestone to meee!

    Hit 2000 posts tonight!


    Ok, so it's not my birthday, but thanks to a few responders a while back, I have been trying to return the favor to others. It was because of the help received on my (I think) first post. Orange, Ajax and rpeare, have some cake on me.

    Here's what started me off:

    You guys are just too prolific for me. I thought I was a busy beaver here, but might be likened more to a sloth. Since it's an Access forum, here's some fitting calculations, assuming each of you joined on the first of the month shown in your start date:

    ?4074/(datediff("m","03/01/2015","03/11/2017"))
    169.75 posts per month
    ?10760/(datediff("m","09/01/2009","03/11/2017"))
    119.555555555556 posts per month
    Really? Maybe if I typed less in my responses...

    I see that those numbers I compared don't mean much after a while since our post count changes. When I did that, I think they were Ajax's and Orange's counts respectively. With 2230 posts at this point, I average a mere 65.6 per month. No wonder I'll never catch up - I just posted a 716 word answer to a thread, not including pasted links.

    Being retired helps.

    Steve,

    I think you might have one of the best (and most appropriate) signatures for a User Forum that I have ever seen. Very clever!
