How long will it take for him to get 10 more posts? I vote 10 minutes.

I think he just stopped posting to make me look bad. That's what happens when you jump the gun on an important news story,* like a few weeks ago when reporters wrote about the death of Joe Paterno before he actually died.

* not to compare 20,000 posts to someone's death, but around here, I would think that 20,000 posts is news.

A couple of points:

- will DJIA hit 30,000 before livesoft?

- why can't the stock market be more like livesoft, in the sense that once livesoft hits 20,000, he ain't gonna drop to 15,000!
