I just noticed the post count against my name. This is my one thousandth post to cinematography.com.

Not even a tenth of David Mullen's score - but still it seems a huge number and it's only 0.66 per day.

Aren't web statistics stunningly nerdy :blink:. I wonder how much time that means I've spent on this site.

Anyway, does anything happen when you hit a thousand? Fireworks? A day off? Telegram from the Queen?

We'll see.

So, hi! to the 18,000 odd members of the forum.

Sorry to clutter up the list with such a content-free message.

Yes but most of David Mullen's posts are self congratulatory in nature :D

I think Phil Rhodes has more posts than David, but 90% of Phil's post are incomprehensible to those of us that don't know 999,000 of the 1 million words in the English language :blink:

Forum rules state that on your 1000th post you must give free processing of 150K feet of 35mm to all Canadian feature film directors who live in Shanty Bay Ontario.

Hey I just passed 2000 as a matter of fact, but 1999 of those where spent trying to educate James Steven Beverly.

No clutter at all. You contribute quite a lot. I've learned lots from your posts, thanks!

Dominic,

I feel obliged to comment. As far as I can recall, you and David Mullen have been, consistently, the most valuable assets to this forum. We can always depend on the thoroughness and accuracy of your answers. In most cases, here, I surf to the threads that interest me. In your case, I perform a search on your name and read everything you post.

Sorry, I don't think you can get a telegram from the Queen; haven't all telegrams been discontinued, or was that just Western Union? I think you can still get a singing candy-gram though ;)

I'd send you a "gift", but I don't think this type of liquid reward would actually make it through customs without some sort of import duty :(

I like the idea about 150,000 feet of free processing. I think you need to move further south though, say the Great Lakes region south of that pesky Canadian border. . .

Anyway, congratulations on 1,000 serious informative posts and then one not-so-serious one! I wish my useful-to-B.S. ratio were anywhere near that good!

Hi Dominic,

I'm with the rest of the crowd here--I have always found your posts very, very helpful. Looking forward to the next 1K! (FWIW I love Phil's posts, too!)
