Place your bets on 4000

post #1 of 72
Thread Starter 
We are fast creeping up on 4000 members. When do you think that number will be assigned?

Give the date and time.

Winner will receive a unique prize of my choosing with input from local deviants. You know who you are.

As the Price-Waterhouse-Coopers-Lybrand of this contest, I'm disqualified. Besides, I'm trying to reduce my prize inventory. It's a lo-o-ong way to the Salvation Army dropoff.

I've noticed the rate of new members has picked up this week but so has the performance of this site (I've had few 'Resources Exceded' messages lately). Its like something stopped draining this site of all its resources somewhere around December 6....hmmmm.

I should have mentioned this: all times are Epic time, Truckee time, Pacific Standard Time.

(Sounds like we need more Supporting Members so AC can buy more system resources.)

since the unfortunate demise of hyperchange, you have way too much time on your hands. This thread and the other one.....

you always did have a way of keeping us together. keep doing it.

of course, the magic number will be on 12/31 at the stroke of midnight, cause there will be at least one sober ski bum reading the threads!!!

January 15th at 6:30 a.m. EpicSki time. Does this prize have something to do with gravity - it's the law?

Jan 1/2003 6:00 pm Epic Time. Should fall in around half-time for the football game. And no this luck person will not be sober.
Are we going to have AC monitor ISP numbers to make sure that Bears aren't pushing things for thier picked dates.
Nolo: Can this prize be shipped over international borders? I could see one of us explaining to customs and the morality squad about our winnings.

It will come wrapped in brown paper without any embarrassing return address to give the civil servants any clue of my identity.

Jan5th, at 5pm.

But come on- almost 4000 members, and only 25 or so signed up for the academy? :

The 25 are the early adopters, without which the innovative spirit would be a dry sock.

The universe's first answer is always NOOOOOOOOOOOOO. It paves the way for YESSSSSSSSS.

I pledge money to my local public radio station, because I listen. I hear your plea for support so I will make a pledge to Epic, because I read, write and enjoy!

Place my bet on Christmas day at 6:00 PM Epic Standard Time.

My contribution has been made

Dec. 24, 11:16 AM EST. My son's birthday and time (I think). What is that...8:16 Epic time.
post #23 of 72
12/20 - 6:32 PM epic standard time. Considering the growth of this site it's amazing that for the most part we are all committed to our common passion here and haven't strayed. Kudos to us. [img]graemlins/angel.gif[/img]

Hey Nolo - Is there a (+) or (-) factor or do we need to guess the exact time?

OK Nolo - You're on.

I'll say Dec 17 at noon.

Can I make another guess later on?? I can just see the devoted ones checking every 20 minutes as we get close, and putting in more guesses.

Cool idea Nolo
I have no doubt that 4000 members will be reached on
-->Jan 18th, 12 noon epic time<--

As good as any, and I trust that you have a suitable prize in mind, nolo, that would rival even The Ryan award. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

The winner is closest to the pin, either way. I told AC I'd clear the prize with him, just in case it's in bad taste.
post #28 of 72
My bet?
Around 2 weeks after I hit the 4000 mark.

Now that WTFH has found his way out of the bars of W/B, I have no doubt that he intends to make good on his threat! What a flurry of postings I'm sure we are in for....

But to date, we haven't heard anything from him re: his excursion to the north. Maybe this is a good thing?

I'm joining Oboe on Jan. 15 because that's the day my Social Security benefit increases by $12. I'll go with 8:00 a.m. Epic Time because by then the bank here should receive the SS deposit :~)
