  •  Heh...back in the day UIDs couldn't go above #FFFF (2+ / 0-)

    (yes, for non-geeks, that's a 16 bit (or 2 byte) wide computer register 'word' and is hexadecimal representation for 65,327). The idea of average computers needing to be 32 bit or 64 bit with gigabytes of memory was still science fiction.  Who'd have guessed DKos would ever need 5 digit or 6 digit long (or longer) UIDs?

    Trivia question: digital archeology time -- anyone else wondering how many 4 digit UIDs are still active here? Or are the digital equivalent of tarpits eating them up?
