    Way to go all.
    I've been a bit busier in April between work and final preparation for my first marathon. I hope to be back again more in May.

    Thanks to all who kept the effort up.

    Thanks, Gaurav but today, until now, I was alone in answering, that's why.

    Can you post how many posts each person had? I think this kind of thing is interesting. <img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' /> Some of you guys must have hundreds a month.<br /><br />MeanOldDBA<br />derrickleggett@hotmail.com<br /><br />When life gives you a lemon, fire the DBA.

    When I read Gaurav answer I think you were talking about month.
    May be is a good idea, but also may be that put some presion to someone.
    BTW: If we have those numbers, my predictions about when Satya cross 5000 post will be easier.

    There is no automatic way to show the total number of posts per member on a month-by-month basis. I have a query I run to produce this information for the contest, but it can't be easily added to the forum.

    Was I a winner? Totally surprised if yes.... Perhaps there is a more worthy Karen out there? I just happened to run across this, if it is me, I have not heard from Brad yet. Just want to make sure there are no email issues.

    No worries here...

    Thanks!

    I believe Brad should wait to get answer for list of people in order to select their prizes, whatsoever left will be your choice.

    Anyway, congratulations on your accomplishment.
