Blog Post #200!


My how time flies! With your support, Mr. B Ed Tech blog has now reached its 200th post! To mark this occasion, I decided to do a little research on the number 200.

According to Wikipeida: 

Well that may seem like a no-brainer, check out some of these other facts about the number 200.
  • In the field of Technology: 200 is an HTTP status code for successfully connecting to a webpage (such as this one).
  • Again in Technology: One of Intel's first 200mhz processor, the Pentium Pro was introduced on November 1, 1995. To put this in perspective, my iPhone 6 (made in 2014) has 14 times more processing power and my MacBook Pro (2011) has 44 times the processing power.
  • In Monopoly, 200 is the amount of dollars a player gets for passing GO.
  • In Racing, 200 is the number of NASCAR races that legendary driver Richard Petty has won.
  • In Health and Wellness, 200 or lower is the desirable cholesterol number that corresponds to lower risk of heart disease.

Thank you for your continued support!
