    Yeah, somebody must've missed their first grade math, so I made them recount.

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    is almost but not 2^32 so I suspect
    an underflow or some numerical conversion
    error. Perhaps x++ instead of ++x or some silly
    thing...

    To have one thankyou tells me that he has
    one post or some other pointer error that
    could be more interesting.

    So a silly bug...?

    It happens every now and then, I haven't bothered to find out what triggers it since it's silly and I don't really care. I just run the post count recalculator and it's all good again.
