in reply to 200,000 node winner

So the Monk Who May Not Be Named decides to post a node, et alors?

What's for you to say whether this is normal or not? A posted node is a posted node. What if it were a pmdevil posting a patch? The real question is, if you take node 200 000 into account, does it change the winner?

Did you really think there would be no funny games played when the counter rolled over?

I actually anticipated some funny business with node 200,000 which is why I reserved the right to use the first "normal" node over 200,000 if something screwy happened.

And no, it doesn't change who won. The difference in createtimes between 200,000 and 200,001 is less than a minute. The second place guess is off by more than half an hour. The winner was only off by 5 minutes.

Node 200,000 came into existence quite some time before node 199,999 did. I think that qualifies as well toward one or the other side of normal. :-)

Your facts are wrong. Node 199,999 existed before node 200,000, and the system won't have it any other way. Node 199,999 simply ceased to exist after a short period.

Facts?! That was merely an assertion, born of a well-meaning but ultimately futile attempt to make this topic slightly more interesting.
