100,000 users!

I just wanted to send a congratulations to mouser. Since we dont have a landmarks type thread, I thought it appropriate to start this topic and congratulate mouser and the entire DC community on reaching 100000 registered members!

Good job!

Sorry, that's just me.  I keep forgetting my password and create new accounts a few dozen times per hour.

(congrats, mouser!)

100k? Darn, we're moving closer to site sellout, email addresses etc.

Just kidding, I love this place (and it's users) :-*

That's 100k registered forum users, but how many are active?

When will we need to balance the load? Can the servers still handle it? And with so many users, doesn't take longer and longer to send out the newsletters?

Only 100,000 eh?
What happened to that panhandler who promised to join if I gave him my last $50?

It takes a deft touch to keep this going at all, and it's truly remarkable that it goes so well!

Nah, not since we bought some processing time from the STORM network... :D

100000 ? Pretty big number. :up:
It doesn't feel like that though. It feels more like a big family to me since only a small proportion is very active.  :)
Congratulations to mouser and the team, and to DC as a whole !

Congrats mouser!!

It's definitely a well-deserved honour ;)

Also, don't forget that the growth of the site is exponential as each of the registered users tells their friends about the site! Thus.. Let's keep walking towards the 1million!!!

I don't know... I'm feeling pretty smug about 100,000 members!

Seriously, since I noticed membership surpassing the 100,000 mark a couple of days ago, "Now we are 100,000" has been playing like a mantra in my head. *Perhaps* PPLandry, Armando, and Doublewitt will get the (admittedly forced) reference and will be able to hum along... Think Expo '67! Think 20 million! Just nod and smile...

I am really cross 'cos I noticed 100000 was on the horizon and wanted to post it - nevertheless well done Mouser.

Maybe the user who registered 100000 should get a freebie Cody mug or something to mark the occasion ...

If you'd like a trip back in time, here is a (somewhat imperfect) view of what DonationCoder.com looked like in May 2005:

Wayback Machine rocks!  Too bad the forums link doesn't work...

The 100,000 member happens to already be a donating/supporting member  :Thmbsup:
I've sent them a note asking them to claim their free cody mug.
