I have noticed that there are allegedly 499,730 messages on this forum, which means that a pleasing milestone is coming up -- assuming that number has any relationship to objective reality, something I have a fondness for.
Since I clocked this, there have been several new posts, in fora that count towards one's personal post number and fora that don't, and the total is still 499,730 .
Edit: of course it's gone up to 499,734 now. Of course. Just so I can't tell which posts did it.
