I would have thought: 20% of them, surely. But then again, he hardly ever posts on any threads I start, if at all ~ although to be fair, this one is an absolute cracker.. Either way, we may have to go it alone.

Sounds like a good idea. I'll try to do my part. Let's have at it! π

Here is a math problem for you: 11,000 posts. Imagine them being fence posts. How many acres could you cover assuming they are 3 meters apart? And of course lots of baling wire. Or if you insist on feet and miles, 10 feet apart.

Do you want the long answer or the short answer?

I suggest, in the circumstances, the long answer, broken up into sections and sub-sections, each posted separately, would be the way to go.

Originally posted by FMF What do you mean by "fence posts" exactly?

You drive a stick about 300 mm across into the ground and do the next one 3 meters or 10 feet apart, take your pick. Do that 11,000 times and run wire between the posts.
Instant ranch. So making it simple, a big square say, 27,500 feet across or 756 million square feet enclosed so you can hold a million cattle or emu's, whatever.
About 17,000 acres. Nice spreadπ

Still desperately seeking your own questionable legacy, are you?
