You need to pull your bike over and do the jump they use to do in Toyota commercials when they reached 100,000 miles.

1000 posts means keys to the big kids' bathroom and a year's supply of Rice-A-Roni- The San Francisco Treat. And a copy of the C&V home game!

Nahhh....
I think that's when they send you your first "retirement" warning from the Forum.... Most likely in a form of a "Get a life" message.....
At 20,000, they hack your computer to block any further posts.....

# of posts isn't necessarily a mark of seniority, just of verbosity.

Wow, Tom! I never realized what a big number you had under your name. Most of the ones I've read were worth reading, at least, but I've only been around here for a couple of years myself. So, "n00b", I guess.

Anyhoo, if anyone feels they have something to contribute, especially a stupid question, go ahead and blurt it out.
