Eddie Mair | 13:59 UK time, Thursday, 16 August 2007

Here is the photo, - well two taken one after the other:


And Jonnie was the 50,000th!

This is MY 1,000th posting. We've done it in one year - tomorrow is our first birthday - when we'll let you in on a little secret....

    And now we look forward to hearing from everyone who has noted the time of Eddies posting??

    01:59 - or 1 minute before 2 ?

    I can only presume that, in true BBC Blue Peter style - the post was prepared earlier.

    Has somebody seen my gold watch, I left it on the table a few moments ago, and there it was... gone?

    Jonnie (blushes) - A true gent if ever there was one.

    Nice watch, by the way!

    But - and here's the really bizarre thing - my PCs been going haywire all morning!

    Well done, everybody!

    Congratulations Jonnie and all, but haven't we gone off a little prematurely?

    Yippee! I thought you were all in this thread having a party without me as a 404 error wouldn't let me in. Now I've switched to Firefox my invitation seems valid again.

    Hurrah for Jonnie, and Big Sis too, and Eddie and everyone!

    What is the secret? That this has all been some University sociology experiment and really we are little more than laboratory rats?

    Rachel G:

    You're probably right!
    And Eddie's probably the Mad Professor ;o)

    The Blog seems to have taken the excuse of a party to go bonkers again. Now I can't get into the Kashmir thread - with or without Mozilla's finest.

    Congratualtions everyone - a great team effort, over 2,000 comments in under a week!

    Yes, Wonko, a great team effort.


    Bubbly all round ...

    Jonnie has kindly handed the honour to me, and I hereby pass it on to the whole Frog Team.

    Well done, everybody!

    Chris Evans (BBC Radio Two 5pm) has a watch very similar to that one.

    Joe :-(

    What are you implying -

    I've been tipped off about the surprise.

    Eddie now has powers to BAN people - forever!

    Look at that: I pop out for an hour, and we fly past the tape without me!

    Congratulations Jonnie, as befits a tireless frogger.

    There *does* seem to be an element of disorganisation within the BBC.

    We were asked to reserve three double rooms for the labour party forthcoming conference back in the Spring - actually for some rather important news staff within the World service.

    After several attempts at trying to confirm the booking and leaving messages, we eventually gave up - and have since sold th erooms to other delegates.

    The phone has just rung and a panic stricken assistant is now pleading with us for the rooms!

    Errm :- What does one say?

    Congratulations jonnie and all froggers.

    I am fairly new to the world of the frog but it is a marvellous effort by you all!

    The thread starter clearly shows Eddie has been playing in his TARDIS again (well, if you had access to one, how long could you resist the temptation?). As previously noted, the post is timed 1:59pm, yet his watch appears to be displaying 2:24pm.

    Just out of curiosity, exactly which of Jonnie's posts was the 50,000th?

    Jonnie, that evil cackle did not go on for long enough. Banning people introduces bias... ANd the beeb does not do bias.....

    Well I'll take back the bias bit I;ve been malicious
