But since Pete knows SMF very well...  and here is the best place to reach him... I guess he figured why not.

in this particular instance and the type of content in the 236 posts, i needed as quick of an answer as i could get. i did in fact start a thread on sm.org. i got an answer here considerably faster. and i knew i would.

1,324 Guests, 61 Users (6 Hidden) sm.org 5:15 am

with that many people always online, arantor shouldnt be the only one i can depend on. by far the top reason im swithing to wedge the first viable version.

if arantor is almost the only one that will help on sm.org, and he going to hook up with nao and create a whole new software, im not stupid, im going where the talent goes. :)

...I can already feel the amount of tech support requests we're gonna get... :lol:

I may be the first to reach 4k posts, maybe even 5k posts, but once we're out, I'll barely reach 6k posts when Pete will hit the 100k mark :eheh:

Done, thanks :)

For those wondering what I'm talking about; there's an easter egg in SMF that when you hit 100k posts, your post count is changed to 'I'm a geek'
