I'm pleased to announce the second significant enhancement to the site this week: take a look at your 'My sets' page and you'll notice that it now calculates the total number of parts you have in your collection!
This often requested feature has been made possible thanks to Dan at BrickLink who has once again allowed Brickset to use BrickLink's data, in this case piece counts for some 5000 sets. You should now find that, unless you have a lot of old, obscure, sets, we have a piece count for 99% of the sets in your collection which means that the calculation should be pretty much spot on.
Piece counts are included in your collection export file so if you want to do further analysis on the data you can load it into Excel and do so.
For the record, it claims I have 281,889 pieces in 1367 sets, and only 10 of them don't have a piece count.
