He's got more than 75 times the total posts on this forum! :D
He's got 'I am a geek!!' number of posts!
Strangly enough, when you view his posts, there are none!

Well, I think the first question we should answer is: Did dom_cabos intend to do this? Or is it simply something wrong with the system?

I think it is more likely to be a bug, a post was deleted that hadn't originally been counted so he went into negative numbers of posts. The variable that counts the numbers of posts isn't designed to have negative numbers so it rolled over to its largest number.

I will regenerate the forum stats which should fix the problem

it is 2^24 -1

so the largest integer you can represent with 3 bytes

Why are you using 3 bytes. Most people use 2 or 4. You odd little man.

Er... dear Dave, can you please put on your thinking cap and regenerate those stats again? There's another geek lurking in there.
