    I can remember the days Jack and I threatened to start this place 2 years before we actually did something about it. Have to say that was a mistake we should have started a lot earlier BUT we both knew what we wanted when we did and this certainly is it. Thanks to the 2500 members for being the folks that you are, we can only hope there are more of your kind still out there that want to be a part of this family.

    I know we both dedicate a lot of time to this place but it's a home we like to be a part of. Thanks all for being at our very large dinner table.

    Okay who's pouring the cocktails?

    Not 'one of the best'. The best. Period. The atmosphere and friendliness here is very much one of a kind.

    I agree ... the BEST!

    I can't imagine being without this forum now. I read the manuals even less since the users here sometimes know more than the manufactures do.

    Keep up the great work lads!!!!

    Glad I'm not the only one. I looked just for the heck of it and figured it was buried deep in the desert someplace. Just about to call out the cadaver dogs

    You just can't see it because you're looking up


    (You go to "Member's List" and click on the "Posts" subheading to sort by post count. Of course as admins we also have a direct link to this stat in our admin control panel.)

    I just sent a note to our moderators. Would have been a lot of furious typing as I was at a funeral. I think the joke is on me.

    I'm sorry to hear about the funeral - sympathies.

    How do the moderators respond to 'not' s?

    I think they might possibly have been pulling your plonker.
    If it's possible to fiddle the figures, perhaps they could put me back to a more sensible 20 posts or so

    Terry,

    The truth is we -- er Guy -- had the system just count up every time you typed "Apple," "iPhone," "Mac," or "MacBook" and added it to your total post count.

    Better than counting all the times I wrote "buy", "I'm thinking about buying" or "I bought" that could be a horrifying stat!

    Hell we would be in real trouble if the buy or WANT to buy was part of the count. Andy would be out shopping for bigger servers.

    Okay I will fess up Jack and I played a little joke on you. We laughed our butts off like school children playing with your numbers. We did try to put in Way to Many but would not work. LOL

    We promise to fix it and just for the record we have not fudged anything else.

    Not a heavy poster, but I love these forums. I just read a lot and suck up the knowledge while debating what to buy and not ending up buying anything. The most friendly and knowledgeable group of people I've come across so far.

    Right

    I will confess--this is my favorite forum--and I always leave it until last to read because I spend more time here. I even tend to read a lot of all the forums.

    Glad I found it (not sure why I didn't know about it earlier ) and congrats .

    Now - a word of caution - if you go to the list of members - the footer states -

    Showing results 1081 to 1110 of 2315



    Someone may need new glasses?

    Just thought I would make life interesting for you.

    Seriously - marvelous environment, tremendous posters. Congratualtions.
