The number of posts per day here is growing. One piece of evidence for this is the time needed to read through them all. Another is the number requiring replies.

Over the past few months, my long-run average number of posts per day has climbed from 8.33 to just over 9.

Here's one for the arithmeticians: how many more posts would I need to make to achieve a long-run average of 10 posts per day on 11/11/2006?

From the top of my mind try this routine:
Code:
rayJoined = Iconv("2002-10-24","D-YMD[4,2,2]")
rayCurrPosts = 11746
destDay = Iconv("2006-11-11","D-YMD[4,2,2]")
rayNeededPostsFor10PerDay = (destDay - rayJoined) * 10
nedededPosts = rayNeededPostsFor10PerDay - rayCurrPosts
Ans = nedededPosts

Result = 3044

P.S.
You probably forgot about that elusive joined date which is available did you not Ray Question Wink

Now for the arithmeticians Ray spoke of lets see the solution without the joined date...

Thanks Kim Smile,

I thought it was fitting to give a DS Basic routine concidering the site were in.

The only problem is that Ray's posts number is a consistantly changing number Shocked Wink

I do wonder Ray, now that we all know you need 3K posts,
Do you intend to try and reach that goal?

I don't worry about targets in that way. I'll just go on responding to posts. Maybe I'll count the actual per-day figure. But I can't see 3000 in six months being likely, even with the popularity of the DSXchange.

Mind over matter. Despite an ageing body, I still play and umpire baseball (and thereby get to think and do other things, outside "work"). And I have a number of strategies to relax, including taking an afternoon out just to play sitar.

And if you ever get to meet Ray, you can admire (to misquote the Clash slightly) his sitar pick'n thumb. Laughing
