Great work on the bio's of the authors, Admin, it must have taken you a great deal of time

Thank you Stephen for the surprise on the site today. I love the bios and the photos of the authors of the quotes. I don't think I had ever seen a picture of Saint Exupery, and I loved his book "The Little Prince." We appreciate all the time and energy you devote to keeping the site fun and interesting, and now educational too. Great job!

Glad you're enjoying them! Only fair to start giving the authors their due, seeing as how this site wouldn't exist without their little pearls of wisdom. :-)

Going from memory, I think it was just over 45,000 last I checked. We have more quotes than that in the system, but those 45,000 are in the "butter zone" - not too short and not too long for cryptograms. Which as of the latest change is any quote between 33 and 149 characters.
