Livesoft reaches 70,000 posts!

Post by Miriam2 » Wed Mar 25, 2020 4:41 pm

Livesoft has now made 70,000 posts on the Bogleheads forum without imploding, or exploding, as least as far as we know.

We do know that he recently returned as scrappy as ever from his backpacking adventure in the western wilderness, and that he immediately gleefully set to work feverishly buying and selling stocks in a market timing frenzy, all according to esoteric Boglehead principles that Livesoft has finely tuned over his many years of helpful posting on the Bogleheads forum.

Thank you, Livesoft, for your boundless help for our multitudes :happy and yes, we all take your assignments seriously, indeed many of us are half-way through reading all the IRS publications you assigned :D

OK, thanks. Now it's time to lock this thread before my head and ego explode. (OK, not really, keep 'em coming!)

And congrats on your own 2800 posts!

That's awesome.

Livesoft, I find myself having the same bear market psychology as you. Put another way, we're natural savers driven by greed. :wink:

Congratulations, Livesoft.

Thanks! I'd post more often, but still trying to get through IRS Publication 590-A and B :mrgreen:

Forget about reading Pub 590. Just ask questions on the forum. :D

Congratulations livesoft!

I have a question I have been meaning to ask you though. As a follower of your car buying rule - "the amount your portfolio goes up or down on a single day" - I wanted to know if you still feel this rule holds in light of recent market volatility. :D

Anybody know the best car I can buy for about $170k?

I’d like for livesoft to livestream his entire life, so I could emulate it.

My routine over the years has been to login to Bogleheads at least once per week to catch up on livesoft's posts. Learned and laughed a lot. Very much appreciate the time you give to the forum. Thank you!

I would like to see the satisfied grin as he tells someone to read an IRS publication.

We probably could have celebrated this milestone in February, before the current crisis, if livesoft had not decided to take a leave of absence from the forum to go wander around in the wilderness.

If the average book has 90,000 words, then Livesoft's posts equals a plethora of books. Thank you for the time you have devoted to helping people.
