I know! Where is everybody? To be fair, I've been sleeping. At least until 1740 anyway. I took Motrin PM when I got home, so I slept like a rock!
Read the posts, you earned it!!

Wow! The daily raffle fell below 20 points required for the first time. 6/12 raffle tickets went to people with fewer than 20 points, including myself. Slow forum day I guess.

I was sorta worried because I was out for 13 hours today, but I made it just in time. Dodged a few trains and captured(poorly) a beautiful waterfall @ Mossbrae falls. I am actually surprised I am getting good comments because Im not a big fan of em but maybe people are being nice

Where do you guys (and gals) find this info (?) ... I have never dug deep into the bowels of PF ... and yep, it seemed like slow day, too. J

(and Monochrome noted that I was the n10 poster or something like that [ ?] ... where's this info hidden?)

February Giveaway Tracker - PentaxForums.com

That's just the leader board for the post-a-thon. There are ways to locate assorted stats for forums, but I post from my phone. The mobile version of the forum is abbreviated quite a bit.

OK ... merci. J

Edit ... more "OK"; finally found it by myself ... I have little patience for things like this ... thanks again for the help, J

Did you find the overall daily stats or you found the post-a-thon leader page?

"Nope" ... I'm a computer "dope" ... Hey, that kind of rhymes and is quite befitting, too J

Well, the link I have you should be the daily tales for each day of the contest. The current day is a fluid list until midnight. At which time, it is final & the next day begins.

OH NO! No post since 9:53 AM!
Went out to catch the full moon-rise last night. Beautiful. Perfect spot. Bigma plus an experiment with the F1.7 converter. -41C wind-chill. Not one shot in focus. Looked at this thread. No posts. Thought that thankfully, the thread is finished. Went to bed and sulked. And no, you've started it up again. Damn.

Yeah, I got that ... I thought for an instant that you were talking about posts for the entire forum ... dummy me J

Still won't get a K-3, because it'll be too complicated for my computer skill set ... and besides, when the next generation K-3 "iis-wq" is released, the original K-3 will be labeled "Classic" ... like SPAM Classic; couldn't bear that kind of emotional shock ... Yes, I know that I am repeating myself, but a rant is "a rant" ... it's what started the mess of this thread, n'est-ce pas ?! "SPAM, SPAM, SPAM" (rinse & repeat) ...

Wow.

As another pointed out, this has to be the most bizarre thread ever. Not just here at Pentax Forums, but on the entire internet.

Think about it.

We have a laptop that leaves a pile bigger than that of a Great Dane.

A French poet transplanted from Oklahoma.

A nurse with a chance at a promising career as a statistician. Or perhaps a network administrator.

Another member uses a radial arm saw to open parcels ( I have to agree, why would we do it any other way?).

We drink good beer, eat bacon, cheese and pickled herring.

Take very good care of our Snow Possums.

And all agree that hociR is bad Ju Ju.
