    OK, so it may not be that important, but we just set another online record as I speak, err... type! Now all I need to do is run around to a couple more of these vacant computers to really raise the bar!;)

    Another Record Coming Up

    I think there is another record coming up too....Charlie is about to hit the 1,000 mark on the number of posts. Should we start a "pool" as to when it will happen???:D :D :D

    One should be careful when even insinuating a pool such as this when there's a budget guy / forecaster in the crowd......

    Charlie - July 10
    Rory - August 1
    Tyson - August 18
    ME - June 10 2003

    Hmmmmmmm, What if one of the 3 of us (Charlie, Rory or I) start making more posts or stop all together just to prove your predictions wrong. In other words did you allow for a "FIX"? :D :eek: :rolleyes: :D

    Nope, no way I can control that. But it's the same in my job - I make a best estimate forecast, and my employer's final results should be pretty close. If one department all of a sudden stops purchasing stationery or educational materials, then yep, it screws up my forecast. But that's not very likely. Nor do I think it's very likely any of the three of you will vary that significantly from the numbers I used - you might try to post a lot more, or not at all, but eventually you will tend towards your average.

    I do update my forecasts on a regular basis, to allow for more recent information. I.e., in this case, I might revise my forecast at the end of the month.

    Win, Place, Show

    Vic:
    The race is for third place; check Shamus under "top 10 posters."

    Did you know that, in Mexico, place betting on the bullfights is illegal?

    So is betting on football games in North America (well, except at the casinos for some reason); doesn't mean it isn't done.
