    New contest folks, and prizes for it are already rolling in. We'll announce them in the upcoming days. But there will be food and drink for sure.

    The trick is to name the date (and time) of the 700,000th post made on these boards. Get even closer by guessing the poster (but you can't win if you select yourself - or if you happen to be spending kissy time with the poster either!!!)

    It's a contest even Insertion can play.

    To Play...

    PM your entry to me (that's PRIVATE MESSAGE for the new folk here). It will be logged in a handy spreadsheet only myself and Perry can access.

    The guessing game cuts off at 680,000 so think hard before submitting your entry.

    And, a few Rules...

    There are few... you can only pick one date, time and poster, and you can't bribe your preferred poster. Once you pick it, it's yours. Rhyming your date, time and poster will do you no good unless you tie all three with someone else (the rhymer will, by default, win). But since rhyming is fun, you'll win props (those are finger snaps) from the contest runners.

    Since Perry and I cannot win, we get to drive you nuts through all of this.

    And for those wondering, monkey-prodding is most certainly encouraged. Driving the monkey Cucko for Cocoa Puffs is the only way to run a contest.

    Do I get credit for creating an new phrase in the English language? I wonder how long it will take monkey-prodding to go beyond these electronic walls into main stream usage? And then into Webster's. . . . .

    Definitely! I think the mods should put it in the board's FAQ.

    Okay people, now you have to start figuring out what the "average posts per day" average is on Treo Central. . . . . .

    Of course, guessing the time and date of #700,000 will not be that easy. Product releases and/or rumors will result in a flurry of activity. way beyond any determined average. . . .

    Yeah, and I'm curious to see what percentage Insertion's posts will make up of the remaining.

    I notice that Insertion has not even posted here? Something bothering him lately or is he asleep?

    I didn't know this thread was about me...although given it was started by Ms. Pamela, it's easy how one can assume it would involve me.

    I would be willing to offer a Treo 700 once it comes out ....oh but wait ... we're counting down to 700,000 not 7,000,000. Scratch that
    Palm m505 -> Treo600 (GSM ATT) -> Treo650 (Cingular) -> BB8700g -> BB Pearl
