    A.p.o.d.

    I thought some folk might be interested in this.

    http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/

    A.P.O.D. stands for "Astronomy Picture of the Day". The photos are just fabulous.

    "Threads: 9,317" it says on my front page - presumably that excludes testing / outside etc.?

    Almost certainly doesn't include testing, since the individual posts in the "Test Messages" sub-forum don't count towards your personal total.

    Also, threads which end up outside eventually get deleted, IIRC.

    However I doubt these two sub forums total 683 threads (though there's been a lot of "Test Poll" threads ), so something else is happening, I reckon.

    Thought it was going to be a discussion of P.O.D aka Pick Of Destiny by Tenacious D (single out on digital sources this week - movie coming soon)

    pretty picture though

    Nope, that's the count of active threads.

    The difference is simply due to deleted and moved threads. (If you go look at this page, you'll see the the Singleton Sofa has three different thread IDs – the two extra ones being because it has moved twice.)
