in reply to Twenty laborious years -- and I'm glad to be here

As a long-time student of Saints in our Book, I noticed you've just passed the illustrious jdporter on your twentieth anniversary. Congratulations!

Spookily, I see planetscape is right in the mix again ... just as she was last time I noticed something unusual on Saints in our Book. :)

Update: Still neck and neck 5 days later on Dec 17 2021. Just 10 more XP to go. Who will become Chancellor first? The suspense is killing me. :)

Woo hoo, talexb made it to Chancellor first, beating jdporter to this new level by just 3 XP, on Dec 19 2021!

jdporter made Chancellor one day later, on Dec 20 2021 ... and on Dec 21 they are tied ... again ... at 30001 ... and again on Dec 23 at 30007 and Dec 24 at 30010 and Dec 29 at 30028. Inseparable. :)

Apr 19 2022: jdporter has caught up ... they are tied ... again!: 30304 to 30304 (2231 writeups to 3640). Apr 21 2022: jdporter takes the lead again.

Still more than 1000 behind planetscape at number 50 with 31354 XP. May 6 2022: jdporter 100 XP ahead: 30409 to 30309. Who will reach the top 50 first?

      As a long-time student of Saints in our Book, ...

    Oh, my goodness. Even though I've been on this site for a ridiculously long time, I also look at this page occasionally. It amazes me that some users who haven't been here in years are still far higher in the Experience numbers. Still, it's fun to contribute now and then, and explain what community means to the infinite supply of newbies who continue to arrive every week. ("Still? I was s-u-r-e that Perl was dead." "Uh .. nope. Not even *close*.") :)

    Thanks PJ. We owe you so much. Groklaw -- RIP -- 2003 to 2013.

      Nevermind (macht nichts). As a consolation, your entertaining Twenty Laborious Years meditation has helped you sprint clear of the redoubtable jdporter (who is now eating your dust) ... and I further predict you'll beat him to the coveted Chancellor level within a week or two ... and then, mühelos, sail past the delightful (but currently inactive) planetscape to earn a well-deserved spot in the coveted top 50 before your next anniversary. :)
