14,000 hints and counting!

A hints milestone reached... Site News
As of today, macosxhints.com has surpassed 10,000 hints (OK, they're not all hints, as there are some site blurbs like this one in there!), in just about 6.5 years since launch. Here's what those years have looked like, from a hints per day perspective (click the picture for a full-size higher-quality version):


I'd just like to take a moment to thank the community for making this possible -- only 1,195 of those hints are directly mine, so it's all of you that have helped us reach this notable milestone. Sometime later today, I'll be changing the little hint counter in the banner of the site to stop tracking the total hint-by-hint (as I think it'll be a while before we reach the 100,000 milestone!).

And now, Apple, if you please, get Leopard out the door soon, so we can all start discovering its behind-the-scenes features and secrets!

MacOSXHints.com has provided me with many much-needed 'hints' when I needed them most.

I'm glad to see that your 'hobby' has turned into a well-deserved full-time gig!

Thank you Rob (and the occasional Kirk!)!

Congratulations Rob...and everyone who makes this "community" such a priceless tool.

And to think...2 of those 10,000 hints were mine...what an honor (and please believe that is NOT sarcasm)!

The graph is really interesting. I hope to see how the spike on the heels of Leopard's release compares with the spike following 10.3 and the other releases.

Awesome Rob_

As I do not get to MacOSXHints every day_ I peruse often enough and have it bookmarked as an invaluable resource for my continuous computing needs_

Curiosity though -- since Apple is hitting the half way point with OS X are you planning on a naming upgrade when they roll out Mac OS v11 ?

On Oct 5 of '03 I 'officially' joined. But I had been around before that for some time. As a matter of fact, I've read each and every one of the 10,000+ hints! I can't believe it! Wow. Such gems can be found in there. Way to go robg!
