Thank you for the win.

Here is a repeat of the rules

The rules:
1. Winner of the last thread starts the new one with a post of these rules.
2. Chooses a future event which triggers the winner, e.g. post number, date-time, and records it privately somehow (yellow sticky, etc.)
3. Everyone has fun posting until the target event is reached.
4. When the target is reached, old winner posts declaration of new winner and also PMs them.
5. Shortly after this a Mod will lock the recently won thread. (My preference is for the winner to ask the mods to lock the old thread after the new one is started.)
6. No double posts. Violator buys a round for the house in Rocky's.
7. Additional rule retained from the last round - No posts that APPEAR to be blank - these will be ignored or deleted. (Sig lines do not count as part of a post.)

I was thinking, "Pah! I could've won if I hadn't been so obstinate." but then I checked the records and it turns out that for almost the entire time span between posts 746 and 747, I was at work. Just a few minutes leeway at each end.

Carlos, you didn't answer the winning question.

I thought I did? On the day I created the tread United Airlines announced the final flight of it's last 747. So I made the winning number 747.

Zor's Battlefortress, before the crash...

Hence the phrase, "That's Zor's Battlefortress, but its been remodeled"... Short of looking at episode 1, that is the best that I can remember.

No, not that. In the winning post, Ang asked what job you got.

[edit] Woo. I won back 70% of what I spent on Power Ball Saturday. [/edit]

Oh that question. My new title is Forward Planning Director for a regional housing developer in northern and central valley of California.

Good morning Mark. I see you have a warming spell.

Well, planning sounds like it's right up your alley, Carlos.
Yeah, a bit of a warmup, then back below zero by the weekend.
Oh well.
