Since there was no great discord to this suggestion (well apart from BlacKnox), let is happen....but perhaps we should have a side pot on who posts the greatest number of posts on this topic - my money would be on JohnK :twisted:

Prizes - well I'll throw in a 2005 unopened QF J amenity kit and postage to the winner.

To make it interesting, all picks must be entered by midnight AEST 28 February.

The winner is the person who is closest (but before) the winning number. Do deleted posts count...probably, because it's easier to calculate when we reach 25K posts.

Now as to my date...I'm going to pick June 25 at 9.00am AEST (and I can't win my own prize). Others are welcome to throw in a prize as well. If any prize giver wins, then they can win all prizes that aren't their own; whilst their prize goes to the next closest picker.

Tips so far in chronological order (non-metric time):

22/03/06 5:30pm AEST MetroAir
04/04/06 5:47pm in KL NM
04/04/06 2:00am in Sapporo BlacKnox
25/06/06 9:00am AEST Lindsay Wilson

Well, there is no point in joining that competition. You have it well covered with that choice!

I was going to wait with my guess, but I figured I will just get in an get my entry on the table. So my guess is 4th April at 5:47pm Kuala Lumpur time.

Noooooooo, just think what that would do to the post counts and predictions if JohnK could post 4 or more times more efficiently. :shock:

(This may be post 20500 ... it was! 8) )

You didn't exactly provide much time for discord :!: You posted the suggestion at 9.22am, I replied NO at 9.43am, and this thread was started at 10.04am :( .

Nonetheless, if you can't beat em, join em. I'll say 04/04/06 @ 2am Sapporo time :wink: .

Has admin been warned about the impending load to their server?

Well I spoke to him this morning but didn't mention this thread (in fact, it was before I started this thread). So the answer is no.

I was feeling somewhat like Kiwi Flyer about this but I don't want to be a party pooper. So my guess is 17/03/06 @ 9:30am AEST.

The smallest member of my family turns 5 that day. :D

I will pick March 8 2006. 21:00 Brisbane time. If I win, I don't need a J amenity kit, so will pass it to the next closest.

No, I don't need any of this stuff as well.

I just want to keep my inability to pick a winner record intact :D
