This post, made this afternoon at 3:38, was numbered 3599. I still have the page open here in Netscape.
The next post I made was #16 in this thread at 10 PM. Just as I hit Submit, the board went down, and the page hung there for awhile. Some minutes later, the post went through. I noticed that I needed to make a correction to it, so that was post #19 to the same thread. Both of those posts say #3600. Except the latter should be 3601.
