This is my 10,000th (ten thousandth) post!
well err, 10K points technically, since I did spend some time on questions of the day and stuff like that.
My first post nine years ago, on Posted 4/2/2003 9:40 AM, and you can see it here:http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic11040-4-1.aspx
I'd been lurking for a while before that.
now that I have 10K points, I wanted to ask the other high posters whether they waited until they had 12K points to redeem them for the bigger prizes, or just did it right away just to get a bunch of stuff now?
I got the email asking my size for the Polo Shirt, and started poking around the SSC premiums to see what to redeem my points for.
I'm leaning towards WalMart cards for my premium, since I'll get a better return per dollar than on food or gas station cards. I'll never get enough points for the Harley motorcycle, so that's not even on my list.
