57991 and 58013 are both more significant milestones, more prime candidates for a celebration.

Anyway, back to work. :wink:

Yes, prime numbers are great, so 4003 is prime, too. Congrats!

That's a lot of posts. If I post ever single day from now forward, at 58,000 posts it will be 157 years from now, year 2175 and I will be 217 yrs. old. That doesn't look right, but I've checked it 3 times.

I was going to wait until 60,000 to mention anything, but I'm not averse to someone posting his total now.

You should wait until 59999, as it is prime.

This is incredible and shows the volume of contribution.

Actionably. . .
How many of those posts over the years have resulted in someone's successful retirement?
How many of Livesoft's 58,000 posts have resulted in someone making the "2 comma club"?

Actionably. . .
1. Learn and contribute through this stellar example.
2. Post actionable topics.
3. Encourage others to visit the forum and benefit from the financial community.

Mahalo for your 58,000 contributions.

I'm gonna need 6.35 posts a day for 25 years to meet this milestone (when I plan to retire(55))!

Congratulations, I hope you get more out of giving than getting.

What about 64,000 it has 38 factors? The prime factors for, 64000 = (2^9 × 5^3).
Also we when get to that level we can finally ask him the $64,000 question.

Haven't seen any adverse reactions to this thread, but that could also be because of my limited activity today!

Hitting the submit button over 58,000 times is work enough, not to mention all the typing, and then there's the thinking on top of that. Just imagine how many posts you would have if you were a true Boglehead! But would that be more or less work?

Congratulations and thanks. Through your instruction and threads, I managed to do some tax loss harvesting.

The community on this board is amazingly generous with their expertise and time. It is a second unpaid job for many such as Livesoft and Taylor.

Thanks,

I'm not sure about the behaving (thank goodness) - I think the moderators may just be getting quicker. On Dec 24, someone needed help figuring out how to get their child to sit and eat at the table, and livesoft had some excellent advice, I thought. There may have been a questionable sentence or two (from him and the only other commenter on the thread before it turned to so much fairy dust on that Christmas eve...) but you could feel the caring. Too bad it's gone! (Except it's still up in my browser, along with thirty other bogleheads threads, as I try to figure out what's next to fix in my accounts... that's the only non-financial post I have up - that and a ragtime piano youtube video.)

I have very much enjoyed reading Livesoft's posts. I remember the short hiatus he took and a thread started up wondering where he was. It was a lot of fun and Livesoft started posting again. My guess is that he took a potty break. Thanks again for helping to make this such a great forum.
