I think it was something along the lines of having written 30,000
lines of code in 8 months or 80,000 in 3 months or something similar
(which is at least order of magnitude or so above the standard 10 lines/day).
I can't recall whether he said it in public during the panel debate. If so
we could check the tapes for the actual quote.

You don't have to have a point, you can just have a good story.
