    I think it's quite a testiment to Scott and his early efforts to establish this forum. If you notice the total number of posts to date we'll be seeing the 200,000th within the week (maybe in a day or so). Wouldn't you think the 200,000th poster would get a free set of strings, or maybe even a distressed master model?

    That reminds me of a Bill Maudlin cartoon from WWII where some Dogface is sitting holding a Coke while a photographer says, "You're the 250th guy photographed with that Coke. You get to drink it."

    That's all? I thought there were almost 200K posts in the "Compulsive purchase- Flatiron 1N..." thread!

    Kudos to Scott; maybe we should pitch in and buy him a distressed MM for his efforts!

    Forego the desire to pit,
    And mobilize words that don't fit.
    For those who aspire
    To get this count higher.
    Aim brevity... #great soul of wit.

    Maybe the 200,000th poster should get a new keyboard.
