    OK, so it may not be that important, but we just set another online record as I speak, err... type! Now all I need to do is run around to a couple more of these vacant computers to really raise the bar!;)

    Another Record Coming Up

    I think there is another record coming up too....Charlie is about to hit the 1,000 mark on the number of posts. Should we start a "pool" as to when it will happen???:D :D :D

    One should be careful when even insinuating a pool such as this when there's a budget guy / forecaster in the crowd......

    Charlie - July 10
    Rory - August 1
    Tyson - August 18
    ME - June 10 2003

    Are you allowing for the fact Charlie just went on a 7 day vacation? :D
  8. rockislandmike

    rockislandmike Active Member

    Yep, of course I factored vacations into the equation. You're forgetting I do this for a living LOL........

    Hmmmmmmm, What if one of the 3 of us (Charlie, Rory or I) start making more posts or stop all together just to prove your predictions wrong. In other words did you allow for a "FIX"? :D :eek: :rolleyes: :D

    Nope, no way I can control that. But it's the same in my job - I make a best estimate forecast, and my employer's final results should be pretty close. If one department all of a sudden stops purchasing stationery or educational materials, then yep, it screws up my forecast. But that's not very likely. Nor do I think it's very likely any of the three of you will vary that significantly from the numbers I used - you might try to post a lot more, or not at all, but eventually you will tend towards your average.

    I do update my forecasts on a regular basis, to allow for more recent information. I.e., in this case, I might revise my forecast at the end of the month.

    So is betting on football games in North America (well, except at the casinos for some reason); doesn't mean it isn't done.
