...entry fee of 5 theoretical internet dollars to guess date of this milestone.

Anyone keen to play?

Too much of a morale hazard - I could guess tomorrow and then spend all night creating a time tunnel with myself.

Morale hazard? a.k.a. work and in-laws...?!

I like the concept of this almost as much as the phrase "negatively excited" ( © WS1), which I have used with great effect on two occasions since learning it last night!

I dared to use the phrase "almost exactly" in the company of JDAW a few days ago. I think I was lucky to survive the ordeal.

Hey! Don't blame me for iPhone's overly enthusiastic auto correction of text as you type. I do get irritated by it.

But at least you got the idea - try using an iPhone to discuss the principles of principals.
