That was 100!

No, we are not quite at 100 factorial posts on this thread, but I like your enthusiasm :D

Wow, when was the last time a thread hit 100 posts? I still remember the times when it happened all the time...

I would wager that at least three of the most recent five topics with 100+ replies were religious or political.

Pffft, I used to make them crack 300 every other week. >:( Now we aren't allowed to have fun anymore so all we can do is talk about the good old days when we used to have fun. :(

Not allowed, or just nobody is here to actually reply?

It certainly is easier to just not deal with BS than to try and actively change it.

Or at the very least, he didn't sneak something into the code to make himself immune.

I wonder what the API for a mind-control SDK would look like. Would there be, for example, a main loop of a certain granularity, with impulses travelling to and from specific locations in the nervous system? Would there be a query interface for knowing which neurotransmitters existed where and in what quantities? With a higher level API, would there be a simple al_set_happiness(float change), taking into account the aforementioned particulars?

Are you suggesting to develop a mind-control utility to:
a) make a thread able to detect your login on a random thread, and thus extend the lifespan of the thread, preventing it to lock?
b) make a thread able to detect your login on a random thread, forcing the thread to lock just before you want to post?
c) make that thread lock and spit a funny message at you?

That's not possible, except if PHP and Matt's SQL server increase their integer type size everytime before the forum overloads it...

By the time this thread dies, PHP will have become sentinent and increased its own integer size.

Step 1: Increase integer size
Step 2: Post endlessly on allegro.cc
Step 3: ???
Step 4: Destroy the world and/or Profit!
