    It was 10 years ago this month that I first registered the aussiestockforums.com domain name, signed up for a cheap hosting account, installed some forum software and set about getting people to register and post. 10 years, and almost 21,000 threads and 800,000 posts later we're still around and going strong!

    Thank you to all who have contributed to the many thousands of discussions we have had here at ASF! Your posts have helped to make it into the incredibly useful storehouse of wisdom and knowledge that it has become.

    To celebrate ASF's 10th birthday I have decided to run a competition that all ASF members can enter. Between now and the close of trade on Friday, May 16th, please post your guess in this thread about what the value of the All Ordinaries Index (XAO) will be at the close of trade on May 28th, the day back in 2004 that ASF first appeared online. The entrant whose guess is the closest will win a Nexus 7 32GB Android tablet!

    A rough-guess extrapolation on my pocket calculator (Made in China) predicts 5,479.15

    Too weird. I ran a couple numbers and was about to post 5,687 only to read kid hustlr's post. Maybe we need to talk!

    Okay, I'll be even more optimistic...my punt will be:

    Looking at the recent trending and the way the market is selling off banks even after they make record profits I would be predicting / soothsaying / analysing the entrails of a goat / pure guess work at 5461

    P.S. Great site Joe :xyxthumbs

    I spilled the blood of three pigeons on a full moon and they each whispered "2000" in my ear as they died.

    I examined the livers of two innocent lambs and each had 3000 spots.

    So I am going with a forecast of 6000.

    I will go with the average of the experts (the previous posters :D) - 5458 for me.

    Great forum Joe.

    Cheers
