4000 by 2003--New Year's Day.... We're almost there. (And just beginning!)

It's amazing how quickly this site has grown, and the bigger it gets, the faster it grows! When did we reach 3000, AC? I think it was only three months ago or so.

Welcome to all the new members!

Best regards,
Bob Barnes

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

Too much money for me, even if i would have gone to the gathering. :/

You're right Bob about 3000, it was just months ago.

I'll toss in a few of the much coveted EpicSki stickers for the winner. [img]smile.gif[/img]

extreme vet,

Is Buenos Aires time the same as EPIC time, or Pacific Standard Time? If not, better edit your prediction to PST, because I can't deal with TIME. It is my nemesis.
post #38 of 72
Buenos Aires is 3 hours behind GMT (UTC), that is, 5 hours ahead of Epic Time (PST)
So, noon on 1st February 2003 will be 1500 (3pm) GMT, and 0700 Epic Time.

This may help... World Time Zones

My darling fellow Bears,

Please do not tax my brain with contemplations about TIME. I read Heidegger in college and it completely emptied my cranium for several months. I am not about to risk another episode of TIME warp.

Only 98 to go, till 4000!
Better get your bets down.....

Congrats- AC + dchan!

It's just a jump to the left (and then a step to the right)

post #45 of 72

Fifty to go at 1:03 p.m. Dec. 27.

The prize will be unisexy, ski-related, and useful.

is it alcoholic?

Nope. The prize will SUPPORT performance skiing.

So, it is some kind of SUPPORT for a performance skier. Now, performance skiers, like all performance sportsmen (OK, I'm being non-gender specific here, so it could be a male or female sportsman), are ATHELETES.
That means the prize is a SUPPORT for someone who is ATHLETIC.

Am I right?

Are you giving away an athletic support?

Here's my reckoning of the players still in the game as we enter the last hours of the contest (if my reckoning is wrong, please correct me):

Jan. 4, 8:02 a.m. Brandon
Jan. 4, 10:00 a.m. Funkybob
Jan. 4, 8:15 p.m. SkierTeach
Jan. 5, 5:00 p.m. Vail Snopro
Jan. 5, 5:15 p.m. Skier_J
Jan. 6, 11 a.m. GMT (Help me, FOX!) Matteo
Jan. 15, 6:30 a.m. Oboe
Jan. 15, 8:00 a.m. Kneale
Jan. 17, 10:00 a.m. Kima
Jan 18, 12:00 a.m. TimMIT
Jan. 23, 11 p.m. Bonni
Feb. 1, 7:00 a.m. extreme veteran

And Fox, your wager was two weeks after you hit the 4000 mark, which translates as what time and date???
post #52 of 72
Put me down for noon on 1/5. I assume we're talking Pacific Standard Time since the server is in the PST zone?
post #53 of 72
Matteo's will be 3am PST on 6th Jan.
I think mine will be around 11am tomorrow.

Here's a hint: weekends and holidays are always slow. When everyone gets back to their office on monday, it will be a very active day.

To put an end to the mystery, the prize is a set of brand-new Booster straps and some EpicSki.com stickers. (Right AC? Will you know the exact time the number 4000 is assigned? I believe that was the wager, and not the 4000th member in actual fact, as clearly you started with #7...Please advise whether the system will monitor when.)

Give the date and time.

Winner will receive a unique prize of my choosing with input from local deviants. You know who you are.
Umm I think you said 4000 members Nolo - not member number 4000
post #58 of 72
Oh & 10am January 10th
post #59 of 72
The system records the dates, but not the hour. Whoever sees it first will have to post here. And the number count is not far off from the member count, but there is a difference. My understanding and I think most people's is/was the member count figure on the main forum page.

Yeah, what AC said. Will everyone be sharp-eyed tomorrow in case I miss the instant it happens?
