Acknowledging a Milestone

Statistics can be deceiving. Sometimes you have the most of something because you do that thing more than anyone else. Sometimes it's because you've just been around for a really long time.

I have reached a significant milestone but our dear Princess Fiona isn't that far behind. On an average day she does it 50% more than I do.

Congratulations, I think?

I saw that. But was it a milestone he was striving for? I wasn't sure. If it was, the definitely CONGRATULATIONS Andy!

No, not something I was specifically striving for. But being a numbers oriented person, I notice things and thought I'd comment. Having the most posts ever on DC means little except I've been here for almost 12 years.

Twelve years in of its own is quite a milestone.

If I had a nickle for every time...

Congratulations!

I think we need a throwback thread with the best of DC, a lot has happened in 12 years.

Twelve years is a very long time Andy, and time for celebration! I'd love to read your personal tell all Memoirs of DC.
