    I see at the top of the Forums Home page that we're at 1,996,045 posts about now. Is there a prize for number two million? And, can we start an office pool on who it will be? ;)

    Hello. I hate to disappoint everyone, but the 2,000,000th post was actually made about two years ago. For many years, the server on GT was not powerful enough to maintain more than a few month's worth of messages at a time, on the site. I had to regularly prune messages for a couple of years. It has only been in the last couple of years that I have been able to let old messages stay on the site and even then, I had to prune older messages to a non-live archive forum. Unfortunately, I lost about 1.2 million of these archived messages in a database problem, about a year ago. Glock Talk has received somewhere north of 4.8 million messages. Keep them coming, folks. Eric
