Because ljArchive keeps a count of each entry, each entry has a unique number. When an entry gets deleted, so does the number, but it's not re-used. According to LJ, I have 4952 journal entries. But apparently I've deleted 48 entries since September of 2001, because ljArchive lists the locked entry where I shared my new address as my 5000th post. me WOO 5000 posts!!!
