    The BIG One-Six-Oh-Oh

    Rejoice! We've hit 16,000 members (well it's 16,001 at the mo but never mind).

    I think we should celebrate somehow! Lets have a celebratory contest, or something.

    I'm not very good at thinking of these things, help me!
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    I thought I'd say something inspirational about how we're glad that you never left so that we hit 16,000 members sooner.

    But since there's 16,001, I guess it didn't really matter.
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein

    We only keep ten percent... the other 14,400 got sold as slaves to keep the servers running.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.
