« Part 36: Employment update Part 37 of random series Part 38: Watch where you park your bench! »

Right now we’re having our 20k subscribers party with free giveaways. The first 10 giveaways go to random members within the 100 most active members list. If you go to the jocks page, sorted by activity, you note that it’s 5×7 jocks per page, or 35/page. Martin is at the bottom of page 3. The first 2 pages are 70 in all, then the first 4 rows of 7 on page 3 are another 28. That’s 98. Then Martin is the 4th one on the next row, or #102. He’s carefully kept himself just out of the running for free giveaways! 6 more posts and he’d be 101, but that’s a dangerous position. He might have to answer a handful of questions, and he has to post the next 3 winners still. This ensures he’ll stay out of the 100 for a little while. Brilliant work, Martin! I don’t know how you could have planned for this for 4.4+ years with all the jocks posting at random intervals, but you did it :)

I keep trying to break the top 100, but I keep lagging just outside the threshold (even with this post). I expect to break the top 100 on day 11. LOL.

Thanks for cool label, Gary. I should design BENEVOLENT GENIUS shirt just for myself, LOL

I was checking the first 100 most active members the same way you did (I needed it to determine # of posts made by No.100) and I actually was #101 – you can imagine my surprise haha. But slipped to #102 in just a few days hmm.. I better start posting more ;)

Martin, the truth is you deserve the most high award here in LJ. Just imagine your time given to it when you wake-up and before you sleep 24/7 because you have to see to it everything is working with server, anti-viral protection, etc. Keep it up. Thanks and God bless

That’s too funny, Martin, and an amazing ”coincidence” indeed :)

Yikes. I had never looked before.
Like everything else in my life, I am on the precipice.
