You can't post any more because you've got such a nice number now.

Even if he does stop, Helen, we'll never catch him now. With the bar set at 2500 I'm just going to have to accept that I'll never be an ineluckty-thingy :( :(

Jim,

Helen

Actually, the odd thing is that he hasn't posted since then, and that was over 24 hours ago! You OK Jim?

:unsure:

Makes my posts look decidedly tiny (not like the "poster" I hasten to add)

Well, I think Jim should retire his number. He can come in under a new name, say Jim L. and start all over. Course in 3 days he will surpass Chris and all the rest of us and be number one again. But I think keeping the 2500 would be kinda cool.

There, there, Chris, you don't want to be an ineluckty thingie anyway.

Maybe we can band, pun intended, with the 5 closest people to us and become a conglomerate ineluckty thingie (s). :huh: :o

It's now more than 3 days , but I noticed that he (or at least his user-id) was present on the forum about an hour ago. I kindly said "hello" to him :)

PS you have to add the contributions of the next five list members before you exceed 2500 (as of this posting the total for the five of us is 2603).

Hey Chris,

We're gaining on him, it would only take four of us now ! :blink:

(Even if he is nearly on #3000.)

He's been a bit quiet the last few days, though. I reckon we stunned him while he was staying with us over Easter.

Chris,I had an Email from Jim and he had a wonderful time at your place and loved the session.As you know I met Jim at Stanstead Airport and we had about a two hour chat.It certainly is nice to put a face to someone you correspond with.
I think Jim is having serious computer problems or was just before he left to go to England and I suspect that is the reason why we have not heard from him.

He had, but those are sorted now. I had an email from him today saying that he is entering into another period of trappist seclusion now he's reached 3000, much as he did at 2500 (so Helen - no provoking him :) ).

Alan, I much enjoyed the tape that Jim brought with him of the recordings for your anglo CD project. We're very busy right now preparing for a trip to France later this week with the morris side we play for, but after that I'll give it a good listen. My first reaction is that the CD will be one to treasure when it is released.

Cheers,

Chris

And I had an email from Jim saying I wouldn't dare provoke him because then I wouldn't get the CD he promised me. Well promised to let me buy and no it is not Jim playing. :P

Actually, this is congratulations to Helen, who has just reached her post #1066... and all that. ;)

And to Stephen Chambers, who is only 5 posts behind Helen, and closing fast! :D

Why thank you kindly, Jim.

When Stephen passed me he was moving so fast I felt a distinct breeze!

Chris

PS Mind you, it now only takes us three to equal Jim's total output. Jim, you're slacking!

So Stephen,

Are you kicking up your heels and dancing yet?

Helen :)
