Well your "I don't have a social life" number is currently 0.29 ppd. (Mine is 6.24 ppd.)
You are currently behind froglegg on page 7 of The Piazza leaderboard
. (Froglegg only has 0.04, so I think you can leap past him. #DYSWIDT)
Alzirus (0.11 ppd) might stay ahead of you for a while, but I think you will
eventually catch him. But Mike Myler also has 0.29 ppd, so I think you will struggle to ever
Sarastro Magnifico has 0.21 ppd, so you will probably catch him eventually
, but not too quickly.
Everyone else ahead of you on your page is also listed as 0.04 ppd, so if you want to prove
you have no social life, and get onto page 6 of the leaderboard, you might
be able to do it, assuming there are some slow people on page 6 that you and
Mike Myler can steal the slots from.
I assume ppd is posts per day?
Yes it is. I abbreviated it. The forum writes it in full.
Yes, I have a couple of problems with pushing it up - one is that my main board to lurk at is GiantITP so I post there rather more often than here, and I am also more of a lurker than a poster
Giant in the Playground do some cool stuff. I don't blame you for hanging out over there. And there is nothing wrong with a bit of lurking. But it is nice when people delurk and you can have a chat with them.

Now this latter sounds good, but my work PC usually gets a network access error on these forums whenever I browse into a sub-forum, something it doesn't seem to do anywhere else. It's not a blocked website as that is a different message (found that out with Project Gutenberg), it just rarely works from my office. It could be something to do with the routing as the network portal is usually in Germany even though I work int he UK (which really messes up listening to the cricket on the BBC).
That's odd. I do occasionally get problems with a page on The Piazza loading, but if I immediately reload the page, it usually loads the second time.
There was a time, in the past, when I was using Internet Explorer and I kept loosing my posts. I use Firefox now, and have much less problems, although my work PC just went a bit weird with some other websites. (We swapped it out, as we got asked to test Windows 10, so that's fixed that problem.)
If you can try using a different browser, I would suggest giving that a go.

I'm glad you got that title. Those custom titles are fun. But, seriously, it's more about cool ideas here, than post count. So if you have any great ideas, please do share them.
