3,000,000th Post Watch

What day will see the 3 millionth post to the SDMB?
Who will be the lucky doper?

Guess #1: 3/12/03

I’d say sometime tomorrow afternoon. Just for fun, let’s say 4:18 p.m. EST.

In case the post isn’t in jest, the 3M mark has already been crossed. Hold your mouse over the quote button and check the end of the URL.

Nope Gyan9, we’re at 2,993,249 by the stats on the index page.

That number is slow in updating. We are way past the 3,000,000 mark. There was a thread on it somwhere already.

Ah, found it:


I guess 2-15-2003 :wink:

I’m perplexed as to why the stats are slow in updating.

After all, this site is database-driven. As I’ll type this reply and press Submit, the vB code will access some entry and assign my reply an up-to-date post number. Why can’t the index page simply access that entry?
