    Due to the popularity of the previous AFF's nth post guessing threads and as we are close to 37,000 posts the time is right to start this thread when AFF will reach it's 40,000th post. Deleted posts do not count, only actual posts!

    Prizes - anyone kind enough to donate a prize.

    Dates & Times are AEST. To make it interesting, all predictions must be entered by midnight AEST 31 August.

    Closest guess to actual post time will win - regardless of whether the guess is earlier or later than the posting time.

    This is the 40,000th post!

    And the winner is serfty. :)

    Congratulations serfty on your accurate prediction using the algorithm you developed. Your prediction was only 4 and 23 minutes minutes short of the actual 40,000th post. Sadly no prize was offered with this thread. :(
