tomos is closing in on 10 (and some digits)

-our brain is good at understanding what was meant, even when we are talking gibberish...
you know, we read "1,000,000,000 posts", even though it said "1,000,000 posts" ;-)
so "10" ("and some digits") should do, if we want to read what was meant

Go for it, Tom!  :up: we want 10, we want 10, we want 10!

I know this isn't a post count, but I saw this today and thought it should go here:

Now we know why that software was discontinued... :'(

In the collections of 'nice numbers' and palindromes, today member number 505505 has joined the forum:

DC 505505 - 27-03-2016 , 23_13_24.png

Only 11 (another palindrome 8)) years after starting the forum... :Thmbsup:

(I missed the opportunity (== screenshots) at 500000 and 500005, so this is a bit belated, but who cares :D)

I do, you should be much more attentive to important issues!

PS - CleverCat DCer's kitten Tinkerbell was killed by the neighbor's dogs, so out of sympathy and 'sensitivity', in the process of posting advice on how to yard-train a kitten using a wire cage as a 'kitten playpen', I switched out my Jetson's dog avatar in favor of the Jetson's boy Elroy. Once again, my deepest sympathies to CleverCat.

IainB + please forgive me! + but that background colour can not go unchallenged! Is it even a colour, or is it maybe grayly gravy ?!!

_______________
Sorry. It's grey, because that's how I have my background colour set for the DC website - too bright and glary for my eyes otherwise. Ergonomically, black print on a grey background is easy on the eyes (less contrast and still quite legible).
Anyway, stop complaining. I was in a hurry to get the screenshot whilst the count was still at 100 - @holt might've made a new post at any time, and then I'd have missed the opportunity. I thought his post was amusing.
The count is still at 100, so I've taken a normal-coloured screenshot and posted it above as well. Ach! Glary. Must restore my nice grey background now...

Hmm. Interesting. Is it just me, or do the colours look brighter/richer on the grey background screenshot clip, and a bit washed-out on the normal blue background?
I've changed my screen background back to grey, and it still seems to me as though the grey screenshot has richer colours.
I produced the clips in exactly the same way - OneNote screen clipper to capture the image into CHS, then ScreenshotCaptor to apply a frame and shadow.

they do look brighter - but they aren't :-)
The same colours can look incredibly different depending on adjoining/surrounding colours.

Why on earth do we not have a single screenshot of Tom / tomos crossing any of the big borders?
Not 9999 or 10,000 or 10001. What went wrong?! Please, someone!

Heh heh.  That "sort of" snow is the only sort of snow I like.  I think it happens in Miami once or twice a generation.  ;)
