Prelude:

As you know, the hero of our story, Rick Baker, and his lovely wife, and our heroine, Erin Baker, will soon be moving the UBB.threads ticket system and members area from the Infopop.com/Groupee servers to their own. While Rick will still be the Master Pilot, Chief Conductor, Head Cook, and Bottle Washer for .threads development, Erin will be doing much of the support work for .threads, as well as the billing, and just about everything else, near as I can tell.

And, they happen to sit next to each other, I've been told.

So this gets me to thinkin', which as you all know, can be quite dangerous.

So, on with

The pool:

About how long will it take before the hero of our story earns himself a big 'ole dope slap?

He's within reach, after all. laugh

I can see it now -
Quote
E: Rick, when are you going to help me with this ticket?
R: Um, just a sec I'm coding out this cool new feature.
E: (looks at screen, Rick is playing Mafia Wars)

DOPE SLAP
I'm thinking about 3 to 6 days. Depends upon how overwhelmed Erin is with tickets in the first week. Might even take 8 days as we're just coming out of holidays.

The person closest, without going over, wins.......

wins.....


absolutely nothing! Except the high admiration and adulation of the rest of us dummies that guessed wrong.

Rules:

No editing of posts to change your guess.
All guesses must be post marked no later than Jan 1, 2010.
No posting a year or two in the future and time traveling back.
Rick doesn't get to guess.
Neither does Erin.
All your guesses are belong to me.
Entry fee can be in the form of cash, cash, or.... CASH!

Perhaps I should transfer a UBB license to a different domain before the end of the day. Just to be on the safe side.

Hmm, let me think. Probably more than a week, certainly less than a month.
