Lets try to guess when mal makes his 1,000th post. Some would say a long way to go but let's see if we can make it a good guessing contest. Mal does not think he will get there until July/August!

Mal has kindly offered a mystery prize.

Dates & Times are AEST. Guessing closes when mal reaches 950 posts.

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

I will offer a small prize. As for what it is, that won't be revealed until the guesses have closed.

I post at random hours, and don't have anything close to a standard daily posting pattern.

Good luck with the guesses. Closest to my actual post will win - regardless of whether you guessed earlier or later than the posting time.

Hmmm. For 3 days now you have been able to maintain your average daily posting rate of 1.61 posts/day. :wink:

I'll stop now just in case I am giving the answer away.

Oops. "1.63/day" is now my standard posting... Keep in mind that's only a figure based on the time I've been posting here and the number of posts I've made! (822 posts in ~500 days)

Time to slow down posting methinks to return you to your normal programming :wink:

Only 100 posts to go before predictions close!

With Mal increasing his posting rate to 1.68/day it won't be long before he reaches 1,000 posts.

Don't forget that there is a mystery prize for the winning prediction. Don't miss out!

Make that 6 posts to go...

Predictions will close sometime in the next 72 hours I think - depending of course how much I post in the next little while.

The small prize is of course not yet mentioned - Only when I reach 950 posts will it be revealed...

Well 950 posts have been made, so predictions now close.

Anything incorrect in the table above?

Oz_Mark, want to predict a time to tidy things up?

Now as for the prize. I have a BA F Men's Amenities bag to give away to the winner (assuming they want it :D ). If they don't, I might have some kind of Virgin Blue prize available (Maybe a pack of cards or something!)

The zip has been opened, but the contents are unused and everything is still sealed.

Have a look at this ebay auction for the standard contents:

Well I've now hit my 1000th post.

Thanks to all who tried to guess it - JohnK was the closest, but still around 12 days off!

JohnK, either send me your postal address and I'll ship you your prize (assuming you want it :D) or if you can wait till August, I'm sure I'll be around for a beer or two when you're up here for the Golf day.

Many thanks to everyone here who has helped me with answers to my questions and weird threads.

Congratulations on reaching 1,000 posts Mal!

Your posts have been very enjoyable and it has been a pleasure to meet you in person on a couple of occassions.

As for the prize, off course I want it. The spoils of victory. No need to post it to me. It will be allright if you can visit us for the golf challenge in August if not for golf then for a drink or two.

I just wish there was more entrants in the guessing contest but we will have to settle for what we get.
