The biggest missing piece tends to be dumb luck.

From observing our CEO, I can tell you that's not true. There's a definite mindset and set of skills that leads to success with huge amounts of money, and I also lack those. Luckily he finds me useful for other reasons though :)

I attempted to find a non-explicit image of homosexual-sexual activity to post here implying the reasons, but I failed to find a good one and probably gave Google the wrong impression about me in the process. I hope you're happy. :(

Enjoy the targeted ads. ;D

Bump.

You guys like Sokoban? I've been hooked on it the past few days.

It will be 2 years in September. :D This must be some kind of record for A.cc (moderators would normally have closed it by now!).

He's not a mod though; he's The Creator. :o

Do you believe there's a Matthew Leverton, who has created this site, or has it just evolved from some meaningless junk of bits and bytes?

I believe Matthew evolved from primordial Progranisms.

Serif fonts <3

I installed StyleBot in my Chrome so that I could make sites like Wikipedia and MSDN appear in a serif font. It makes the sites speak to me so much more and brightens my day.

This site always existed. It was simply inaccessible until Matthew discoveredit by reciting the right incantation. It's not fully uncovered of course, as the incantation he has composed isn't perfect, but it seems he has lost interest in discovering the rest. :-[

So there's at least some kind of intelligent design involved?

Everybody with a member number less than 4,000 should be a mod. This is no arbitrary number. Countless studies have shown that the first 4,000 members of any organization or community are its most senior.

It sounds like you've found a good leader. You may want to stick with him.

Everybody knows the flying spaghetti coder created this site.

The flying spaghetti coder pays my source code a visit whenever I code. :(

You guys aren't posting often enough. :'(

I just participated in four days of solid rehearsals, morning, afternoon and evening, culminating in a concert. It was the best orchestra I've ever played in, and it was exhausting but wonderful. Shame it was all in German :)

Four days without a post? I have an excuse. What's your excuse? ;)

bambams, presumably you got temporarily evicted by your own 'dishwasher' for posting that? ;)

Katko, your god is the reason you didn't post?
