Ok, in the spirit and precedence:
Whoa! 10k (actually this post makes 10k and 1), after just under a year and a half. That's just a little too much addiction ya know

Which means that not only do I write novels, but I write quite a few
I'd like to thank a few people (really, even though that sounds funny):
BigJohn (John): When I was a wee lad back before I learned a thing or 2, you trusted me enough to walk you through a bit of early stages of setting up your system. Thanks for believing in me!
Neo77777 (Boris): Thanks for making me feel like I was welcomed even at times I likely shouldn't have been
Finegan (Christian): I think I've read more of your posts for the simple fact that I like the articulation of your writing. Thanks for keeping it interesting
acid_kewpie (Chris): For keeping me in line and teaching me not just things about linux but how to post on the forums, proper etiquette, and how to look at things with a different sense of humor
Trickykid (Drew): For not knocking me down when I surely should have let someone with much more experience than me answer some of the questions I'd dabble at when I first came on board...
Tons of others, but:
Jeremy: Thank you for so many things: An awesome sight that keeps me on my toes, the opportunity to contribute even more to the forums that I love, keeping things running very smooth while also adding new features that make the site as amazing as it is today, and the list goes on. Thank you.
When I was asked to become a moderator on these forums I was overwhelmed. I got all squirmy like when you have to give a speech or something. I took a day or 2 to answer Jeremy because of all the awe I had in being asked to mod around here. I am very happy to have been given such a roll on LQ, and will do my very best everyday to live up the expectations everyone has come to expect here on LQ!
I've learned everything I know about Linux exclusively from these forums and links from them. I'd have never made it to where I have today without this place, so I'm very grateful it was/is here and will look forward to doing everything I can to keep it going for a long time to come.
Thank you everyone for all your help, and I'm extremely pleased I've been able to return the favor on more than 1 occasion to some of you.
I better get to bed before the crows start barkin, I've got to work tomorrow after all
As a last note before I hit the sack...
I came up with my custom signature (Cool) from being envious of all you brits/Aussies and other's (seems more common with the Euro's and Aussies than any others
) always posting "Cheers!" which seems to completely lighten any conversation. I've in fact started using that (and suss) in my posts, daily conversations, and at any point it feels right. As I used "Cool" more and more, it became natural to say it, and feels wrong when I don't. So now you know a bit on where "Cool" came from
Ok, at least why I use it as my "signature"
