I'm a few more on from there now.

Thanks. It's taken less time from 5K to 10K than it did from 0 to 5K.

*clap clap clap*

I could never make that many posts, unless it's a pokemon forum. TT^TT

Tech support gets boring after a while, haha.

Thank you all for the appreciation.

I think we should also praise JamesH, he's quite a way ahead of me in the post counting game.

10k posts is impressive...

But 10k posts at a very high level of quality like Dougie does it.... is what I find really impressive.

Congratulations !!!!

Thank you.

Not my fault. Although I wrote a bash script to keep checking (every ten minutes) if they were back and running.

I've got the hardware ready for the next 10K posts, my RPi2 has been running for six and a half hours.

So, if you can post 6 times faster than your previous average of 17(!) posts per day, you should reach 20,000 in just over three months.

It should be locked it's as dead as a dodo. I've asked Clive if we can have a Snappy and Win IoT sub forum instead.
