It's inevitable unless you get activated again gfox. The closer I inch towards your 60k b/p stat the more determined I am to continue this insanity. >_<
All my b/p goes to this account now, Recon. It's just the way it is, there is no chance of "re-activation" in gfoxcook's near future. He's as dead to the b/p world as fixit is, though at least he still gets his 10 exp a day and some posts and reviews now and then. That's the main difference. That and not being a robot, of course.
Anyway, I don't mind any of the four of you passing me. I don't even mind 3 of you passing me. Like I said, the part that's gonna be tough to swallow is all FOUR of you passing me and knocking me down to the #7 rank I don't like very much. And I had it already for nearly 3 months in late 2003.
I got so tired of that rank yet it's destiny that I be #7 for a long time again in 2006, apparently. Probably a much much longer time this time around than last time, too, unless Wylo or leeboy or someone else can pass me fairly soon after the four of you pass me.
(ranking, days at that ranking, date I got it, and who I passed/got passed by to get it)
#10 - __6 days (20030811) - after passing DrMSM
#09 - _29 days (20030817) - after passing Recon_Rebel
#08 - _26 days (20030915) - after passing Stormwarden
#07 - _84 days (20031011) - after passing NemesisM66
#06 - _64 days (20040103) - after passing thisisasignin
#05 - _40 days (20040307) - after passing RyoHahn
#04 - __2 days (20040416) - after passing Crono-
#03 - 258 days (20040418) - after passing TheJoe324
#02 - 174 days (20050101) - after passing fixit
#03 - ??? days (20050624) - after being passed by MPA
My total time at #3 is of course going to dwarf just about every other ranking I've been at... for quite a long time. Possibly forever, since once I fall out of the top 10, I'm probably going to get passed more and more often by all the new up-and-comers.
That's the life of a retired b/per, Recon. I have embraced it and all of its consequences.
And new b/p life springs forth in this alt account of mine instead. Won't be too much longer (less than a month, hopefully) till I hit 1000 b/p and begin my journey into the Elite Guard ranks a second time. It's fun not stressing about these things anymore, though. A leisurely pace is best.
Show me a man with his feet planted firmly on the ground and I'll show you a man who can't put his pants on.
gfoxcook isn't a man with his feet planted firmly, though, it's an account of mine that I have retired from b/ping. His feet aren't on the ground, in the air, or anywhere like that... if they're anywhere, it's in the grave.
Well I've had a wonderful evening... but this wasn't it. Thanks for another great update gfox.
You're welcome, glad you enjoyed it.

Nice update gfox. Making 257 posts since last update, that takes me to 36 posts a day last week. :) Good thing I made over 50 posts yesterday.
You and your posting. #;-}> Thanks.
Yep, I can see that. With the bans, good thing the longest ban I've had is 3 and no more.
The longest ban I've had is... oh wait... heh.
No, actually, even though gfoxcook has never ever been banned before or since I was modded on that account... THIS account was banned. Once. As a joke. By a fellow Wi/Ht? mod. How silly of him. #;-}>
LOL, sorry. Those W's aren't on my submessage now. It's not about a smashed XBOX 360.
If it's not about that, then what's it about? Did you mean "now" instead of not?
I started to use AOL in 1999 and used the newest version whenever they came out. I didn't suggest to upgrade them. My mum did it. :|
Yes, but AOL and AIM are very different. I've met AOL users in the late 90s who didn't use AIM and some who did. Using AIM (which I've done since 1997) is different than just sending IMs from within AOL (only did that in 1994/1995).
Yep, I would be just keeping an eye on the blammers.
Well, if you ever notice any saviors or expers or posters nearing 10,000, please let me know as well.
I just realised today that Sanjay, aka osamarama, isn't on my spreadsheet and he has 10k+ posts, so I just fixed that problem and will mention it next Saturday.
But I'm sure there's more like him out there. Anyone who can help me out... that'd be great. Don't make bahamut and me do all the work, okay? #;-}>
Yep, and with my normal pace of posting, my alt could get to over 250 posts, which is quite good.
My alt just jumped from 177 to 188 posts.
But the XBOX 360 getting smashed is more important than those W's at the moment! :P
Again... WTF? #;-}>

Well I guess that is a sure sign that someone will take a drop down on the list in the future.
We've known that since I decided to retire back in June. The only questions are... how many drops will I endure... how far down the list will I go... when will they happen... and who will be the people doing it to me. #;-}>
For now, all we know is that Denvish and bila and Recon (probably in that order) will be knocking me down to 4th, then 5th, then 6th... quite shortly... that X-Naut won't be far behind to knock me down to that bleh-worthy 7th ranking... and then beyond that, we'll see...
But who will take me down again and when it will happen are far more obscure and hard to guess after those four pass me, so... the future is uncertain. Like I said, I'd guess leeboy and Wylo.
Nice update to the list, I was wondering when it would be posted.
Thanks. Late Saturday night as usual. No delay to Sunday afternoon this time (helps that I had a 4 day weekend to get plenty of sleep during instead of a 1.5 day weekend like a week ago when I worked half of Saturday #;-}>).

You're welcome, wismty.
I got passed while passing someone... Oh well, at least there's no harm done... to me at least :), same thing might happen by next update when I pass nimmer back (that bastard), and then getting passed by AZPunisher...
That's pretty much the best time to get passed, yep. Unless you don't mind -1s and would rather get a +1 separately, I suppose.
On other news: I got 8800 saves, so close to 10,000 :)
Good luck with the last 1200 saves. I hope you get them by the end of the year. That'd be a great way to finish 2005, eh? Have fun with it.
