    That's weird. I just checked this thread > http://club.dx.com/forums/forums.dx/threadid.1428974?page=9 and sheepish's post count is back to 19,999.

    I know it was exactly 20,000 when I started this thread. :O
    NO! I don't know why DX screwed up the site so badly.
    Ask them.

    Oh poo, I had to log in to post this, which is (once again) my 20,000th post. And I had to reload this page, even though the top of the page displayed "Hi, sheepish {Logout}" meaning I was logged in. Poor coding means the page doesn't check if I have logged in since loading the page. Not a bug but it could be improved.

    Thanks everyone. A few points:

    Oh yeah. I got that error message and couldn't post the whole thing at once (grrr) so took a break for lunch and got distracted.

    A few points:

    * Only part of Congo is in the southern hemisphere. OK, most of it is south of the equator, but not all.
    * I cannot go straight to LAL's earliest posts page by typing 901 into the box and clicking GO. A bug!
    * LAL is sitting on a ridiculous 15.7 posts per day.
    * Believe it or not, when I started ~8.5 years ago I was pretty much just posting helpful stuff. Some of those posts were even "acknowledged" by Kyle. I miss Kyle.
    * Don't listen to those who say I never post helpful stuff. It's just their frustration talking. They'll get their piggy torch eventually.
    * I started posting just a handful of months after DX started. DX is not yet 9 years old.
    * I remember when DX did not include shipping in its prices.
    * I miss @flashin/@flasshin too.

    I know it was exactly 20,000 when I started this thread. :O

    Mwa ha ha. It's not every week I get to hit 20,000 twice. Thank you to our tireless mods for cleaning up after DX forum bugs.

    I don't think that's worked since I started posting here. I remember asking about it at least 2 (probably more) years ago and was told it didn't work.

    Do you know which of your posts was removed? Were you being mischievous? LOL

    901?
    Why 901?
    What is that?

    901 is the # of pages for LAL's posts.

    Click on "Posts" in someone's reply and at the bottom left of the column, it shows the # of pages. Typing 901 in the box and clicking "Go" should take you to LAL's first page of posts. It's never worked as far as I know.

    I thought that the "jump to a certain page" bug had got fixed after a few months (long after we had given up on it ever being fixed).

    Do you know which of your posts was removed? Were you being mischievous? LOL

    {Cough.} Maybe. But that's incidental. In a recent thread I repeat posted because I got the message "Server is busy, please try again later." But the post was actually accepted all three times I tried. DX is weird. The person before me also appeared to have had the same problem, since their post also appeared three times.

    Sigh. "You need to activate your account first."
