Ahhh, the memories.

I have to admit that in recent months (or year or so), I've decreased the number of posts I used to do in Quite Interesting and the various series threads, and I'm probably more known these days for being the annoying git who hangs around the WFHiT section, but I promise you there are some gems I'm rather proud of from years gone by :)

Well, the longest unpruned one. I'm sure if you let the Word Association game run its course...

No, you've always been an annoying git - only the locations have changed...

Is the clock at QI-central a little slow or is it the clock on Bob-local? Most recent post "PDR 1024061. " claims it is "Mon Sep 23, 2013 8:28 am". I need to know because I'm counting down to 1722hrs today to blow my klaxon for the new decade.

I hope Q.I.ltd has a full documented risk assessment around sending naked flames to so many locations without the requisite fire precautions...

Perhaps it's covered by Elf And Safety. :P

I'm not claiming all the glory for the rapid increase in numbers of registered users after my registering in 2009 but there is clearly a direct link.

Very pretty dr.bob - I like it! thank you for the tip about holding down the shift key and reloading, because I was seeing the old version too until I did that.

The reason I spend hours stuck in front of a computer is that I have neither energy nor ability.

More interesting stats about the forums:

Unsurprisingly, the most viewed thread on the forums is the "Random Factoids" thread mentioned above. However, the second most viewed thread is the one about the Largest Waterfall on Earth. The quite interesting feature of that waterfall being that it's underwater.

Thanks very much to Theodk for kicking that one off.

Another interesting fact: no fewer than 1,856 people have registered as a user on the forums, posted only a single post, and then never posted again.

Congratulations, QI forums, now that you're 10.

But a bit of a shame that they've given you only 6 candles.

More seriously though, please could we have our old background back? or at least any background that lets people read black text against it? The plainer and whiter the better.

I have loaded and reloaded, and I still don't see any candles. I obviously haven't been invited to the party.
Sniff :-(

foooWEEEEE

There goes the hooter for the next ten years. According to my records and BST it is now 1722hrs on 23/09/13, so this is likely the first post on that new decade. It's 9 years and 11 months since my first post 533. Bless SS QI and all who sail in her.
