3 new members in the last 30 minutes, that gives us 207 to go divided by 3 = 69 x 30 = 2070 minutes divided by 60 = 34.5 hrs, so at approx x hrs tomorrow. nah! someone else finish this off :-( and I can't find the division sign on my keyboard.
air of tension as we approached 50,000 members. It happened again when we neared 100,000.
Now we're within sight of 150,000.
There won't be any prizes for the 150,000th member, because if there was we would see all kinds of people up to all kinds of tricks. Let's just allow the total to clock up and tell us we're there. Then, when we get there we can all enjoy those links to virtual fireworks displays that someone always posts for us.
When we reach a quarter of a million we'll have a real celebration. In about three years time?
"There was a similar air of tension as we approached 50,000 members. It happened again when we neared 100,000." The same in the early days when the site was reaching 30,000, with a virtual sweep stake going on, if my memory is correct FE (china).
