Well, here we are. There are now 20,000 of you in here, all sharing your knowledge and experience for the greater good. To put this into context here are soem figures for you.
In the UK (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales) there are 22,156 primary schools and 4209 secondarys (not including private schools), so my guess is that we pretty much have every single UK secondary on board, and a large chunk of the primarys. And if not, why not?!!
We are now building up our international members with a LOT of US schools and districts joining and a rapid rate of knots, but considering there are 27,468 public high schools in the states we have a way to go
So it's a big thank you to you all for making EduGeek the home away from home that it is, and our current net standing of 44,025 (was in the 43,000's yesterday) shows just how big you have all made it.
Oh, and congrats to Bezwick for guessing the correct date and time to within a few mins as he guessed 09:33. If you can PM me with your details We shall get a rather funky Asus VH22H 22" full HD monitor off to you curtesy of our friends at ICT Direct (ICT Direct - computer hardware for ict in education - primary, secondary, special needs schools and colleges).

world dominiation plan alpha: step 1 - complete
Is the next competition to guess what date and time someone will overtake Geoff as top poster?
Edugeeks certainly come a long way since I joined, I remember the old PHPbb based forum, and the old logo that went with it, ahhhhh memories!
Wooo hooo, yayyy yayyy never won anything before thanks Edugeek and all its members, especially the 20,000th member for such impecable timing.
Will PM Dos_Box now.
http://www.edugeek.net/forums/genera...07-competition - I'm guessing it must have accumulated some interest, so I'm expecting a top end gaming machine to be delivered any week now. . . . . . .
I wonder... what's the largest number of users from a single organisation? I reckon we are in with a hot chance - Me, Robf, Nile, Darren, Daniel, Gav, Claire, Sean, Pete, Tim (2 of which were edugeekers before they worked at SmoothWall) - anyone beat 10? Have I missed a SmoothWall Edulurker? Have Sean or Claire ever posted?
Bit unfair comparing commercial companies and schools
We have 4 edugeekers here
alan: yeah, I guess it is 4 is pretty good going for a school i'd have thought!
Well done DB and the rest of the team and membership.
It truly will be a great day when we can say for sure that every school in the UK has got representation on EduGeek.
I just had a thought, i don't know if it's scary or really cool. Once every school is on here, surely it could become the central portal for all schools, with a helpdesk, such that when you log a call, it's not just your own IT techs that help out, but 20k+ all reviewing the case...? No, definitely a scary thought that - sounds like way too much work!
