In one breath I ask: "Wasn't this type of thing what the topic and article below were saying way bad?"

In the other breath I say:

Woohoo I have 16 posts (17 now...) Only 1400 more to go to catch up to Philo

I am curious, how did he program it? Going through all the forum html pages and parsing it? Or did he have access to Joel's forum database?

Probably a perl screen scrapper, the discussion group is fairly simple html.

So does that mean that I had 54 important things to say? Or was I just goofing off... 54 times? Haha!
