Only 1,105 mebers to go!

The Terminator and Sweetpea guessed the 26th December, and so have lost.

Here's a (very rough) graph of the numbers so far. Note that the graph points don't take account of the time of day when I made a note of the numbers. However, I'm feeling optimistic about my guess!

Maybe I should have predicted the 29th, which will be my MR - 1 year anniversary.

Slightly Paul, Is that what the clock on your MobileRead Screen says? I had always assumed for whatever Reason that MR post clocks read in Eastern Standard Time throughout the world. What time are you reading for this post?

It shows an hour ahead of the correct time in the UK. When I come on to MR after 11pm our time, it says that my last visit was yesterday, even though it clearly is still the same day...

But what does the time on post #49 say (your post immediately before this one)? Here it says, "Today, 11:23 AM".

For me it says, "Today, 17:12". You can set your own time zone.

You can configure the clock in "User CP", "Edit Options", "Date & Time Options". I, for example, have USA Mountain Standard Time and no DST corrections.

Saying that, post #49 reads "9:23 AM".

So then, theoretically, we could have two members guessing different days, and both could be right.

Post #49 says 5:23pm for me, when our "real" time was 4:23pm. As you say, we could have 2 on the same date in theory...

As of right now (11:29 GMT, 18th December 2011) MobileRead has 147,106 members.

Predict the date that we reach 150,000 members. All dates will be 0:00:01 to 23:59:59 GMT. If someone joins at exactly midnight to make it 150,000, both dates win!*

Your post's date stamp is "Today, 04:12PM" with today being the 27th December. The time stamps on MobileRead are displayed in your local time, as set in your User Control Panel. (User CP/Setting & Options/Options/Date & Time Options/Time Zone.

My time zone is set to "(GMT) Western Europe Time, London, Lisbon, Casablance" with "Automatically detect DST settings".

For a minute, I was thinking I had to change my date, then I remembered I used my fortune telling app to pick it and that the app "can be trusted to tell you what lies ahead with scathing accuracy and cool indifference."
