    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    howdy,
    if you dont know these private forum exist then you don;t WANT to know what goes on there.
    things like
    right wing wacko conspiracies
    left wing wacko conspiracies
    sub-inteligent orgies
    i think you get the idea.

    Did you write a program to parse output of HTML from the board to calculate that? Was it all requested manually? Was it written in C?

    > Did you write a program to parse output of HTML from the board to calculate that?
    Not as such - just a bit of regular expression matching using AWK (Perl without the steroids to you)

    > Was it all requested manually?
    Not a chance - the whole thing is
    curl to grab web pages
    awk to extract the info
    bash to glue it all together

    It's all about the average number of posts per day, wich is about
    8 for everyone of those top ten posters, not a that high number
    is it? 8 posts per day? it's just that they have been a member for
    a loooong time.

    10+ posts a day for more than 2 months membership = obsession in my book.

    Take a break from this place, man! hehe.. you need to find some other more productive things to do.

    LOL

    You are just helping out the community a lot, think of it that way, it will make you feel better.

    Thats a pretty cool script Salem, how long did it take to run for those top 10 posters?
