    Talking 5000

    Well....this is my 5000th post.

    Would like to say god bless and stay safe to all the friends I have made in this forums. To those of you that I have ticked off, I say...I hope that we can agree to disagree and still be friends. To those that have asked for advice, I hope it helped.

    I have enjoyed the spirited debates and heated arguments as well as the "on the lighter side" discussions that we have had.

    I will most likely never meet most of you and to that I can say that this is very unfortunate. To those of you I have met (Stevedude and 5pts) I say, thanks for the opportunity to meet and greet in person.

    To the WT....I say thanks for your indulgence!!!! Great job.

    Will any of you be at FDIC in INDY?

    The 2nd page is interesting too! I zipped past 1000 and 2000 with no fanfare and it looks like I finally pulled ahead of Ian, we kinda were going back and forth the last few times I checked the list (I look at it every few months or so)

    Congratulations on 5000!

    Some posts have been to share some wit
    some to deal with the usual s***
    some are laughs, some are tears
    some are discussions of our favorite beers
    some have been advice, tried and trusty

    Well...

    I'm probably the last person you would have thought would post here. I have questioned your posts in the past, and have learned from my mistakes. You and many other people immediately put me in line and helped me to realize the mistake I had made. Congratulations on this milestone.

    Thanks for all of your insight. You need to come to Tallahassee and drink a Guiness with me some time.

    Keep it up, you're always interesting to hear from.

    Just a flying visit then - mainly for the exhibition? I get in at the end of the previous week and am there for the HOT sessions and exhibition/classroom sessions, before flying out on the Sunday morning back to NYC and then the Looooooong haul home back to Oz (and I hate flying).

    Looks like there's potential for another meeting of crust - I've already met Pumper41, SuperChef and E229Lt in my various travels so far, and only just missed out on meeting SteveDude (and Paul Grimwood).

    I think I'm staying downtown as well - about a block from the convention center which makes life a lot easier.
