Current "top" database # : 99,816
Current uploads in the backlog : ±1,100
Only 184 photos to go ....
So, #100,000 has already been uploaded, and will be added to the database as soon as Johan gets back from his hardware acquisition trip.
Can't wait to see whose it will be. I've asked Johan whether he'll be letting it be "luck of the draw" or whether that entry will be reserved for someone, but he's staying silent on the matter for the moment ....
BTW, as Gary (Granite) will know, the uploads admin page doesn't actually show what number on the database an approved photo will get, so working it so a particular photo makes it as a particular database entry # could be quite tricky.
Good luck to all of you who sent in uploads around Tuesday ... I reckon one of you will get it.

I don't normally frequent this paticular forum, but AirNikon did get number 100,000. I believe that he deserves it, he is one of the best photographers around, and has been at Airliners from the beginning.
