    I guess that makes me the "oldest" of the five new guest posters. Kinda funny, since I am pretty sure I am actually the youngest.
    •  Are you "older" (none)
      than me?  (UID-wise I mean.)

      I'm confident I'm the oldest in age (and musical tastes).

      •  He's 73, You're 170 (none)
        So he is of The First Hundred, you are of The Second Hundred.  

        I think that means you get a robe, but not a scepter.

        •  I misread the number (none)
          thought it was 243 on David.  See how often I look at them, I can't even find the right one to read!

          I'm always surprised that my number is so low because I purposely held off registering for a couple of days, unsure if I wanted to continue at dKos as the primary crap got more intense and more juvenile. I think I decided I wanted to hold on to "a gilas girl" as my handle and since those were the days of trolls hijacking other people's handles (Marie and Marisacat and any number of other people had someone posting as them that way.)  Markos has been amazingly good at stopping trolls with their most destructive kinds of practices as quickly as possible, hasn't he?  Really.

        •  Sceptre (none)
          Heheh! Where's my sceptre then?

          DavidNYC: 73
          A Gilas Girl: 170
          Hunter: 1054
          Armando: 1638
          Kid Oakland: 2046

          You latter three were slowpokes!

      •  number of digits (none)
        nine with a single digit uid
        ninety with a two digit uid and nine hundred with a three digit one, and that, less than 3% of the current membership, are the old farts.  The next ranking are the young turks, now in ascendancy; the four digit folks, with low four folk now the majority of Guest Bloggers.  The five digit newbies are also showing themselves to be a formidable presence with plenty of talent and wisdom to be seen.  Daily Kos grows richer as a community.
