OK, between April 6 and April 20 (2 weeks) we have made 66 posts.
...scrabbles off to get calculator...

So, at this rate of posting we will reach 64,000,000 in... um... oh, interesting: 969696.9696 days which is 2656.704026 years i.e. 646 years to go. So I guess none of us will be too bothered by then :laughter:

67 is the 19th prime number, according to our friend wiki...
