    Sure is.

    Going back to a post you made about making STOCKTOBER2! even better than Stocktober (1), I think we only have a single goal to achieve now, which is number of views:



    As you can see, page length and therefore number of posts is currently at ~150% of last year and I can tell you that we have already exceeded last year's number of entrants too.

    That 45,953 might be slightly misleading as it is number of views right up until now including all the views over the last 11.7 months after the comp closed, but if we truly want STOCKTOBER2! to be undisputably better than last year's Stocktober in all metrics by the end of the month, we collectively need to view this thread 17,826 more times before 31st October. Whattaya say Edugeek? Can we make it?

    Al...You know those ratings aren't for real, it doesn't take into account places with 2 or more PCs, or those that are watching the recordings at a later time [/anchorman reference]

    Well, I have friend who only communicates by electronic means between the hours of 5pm and 7pm (this is not a joke), a good time to use your forum based charm on her...

    Thanks @TechMonkey

    Hmm, gently you say? Is that what we've been doing wrong all this time? We'll give it a go, but I can't see it going well.

    On the other hand, it might be a revolution in box removal technique. Only one way to find out...

    That would be epic, but Me and Colin are in no fit state today I'm afraid. Him with his injured hip and me all "glaaarrhhh" and stuff. Probably for the best.
