And counting...

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

My current stats are:
Date Registered: 03-14-2002 Last online: Today 03:50:48 Status: Moderator Total Posts: 10000 (18.79 posts per day - 400.33 characters per post)
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"

Congrats MasterC - I don't think you've helped me personally (damn your eyes, man ) but I have seen the help you've given others.

Again congrats and, of course, Cheers

Just noticed - I'm over halfway to being an LQ Addict. Not sure what having half an addiction says about me though.......

Congrats to ya MasterC.

I originally never thought anyone would ever pass me up in the beginning.. then I got an email from Chris like 2 months after he registered on the site, claiming he was going to surpass me one day. I believed him and he did 2 years later just a few months ago. At the rate MasterC posts though, he will surpass acid_kewpie in a matter of months..
Now I'm happy cause I don't feel so much more like a dork now cause now there are two post monkey's in front of me in post count.. Thanks guys, I feel like I have a life again..

I don't think anyone could have said it better. That is a really nice post and it is enjoyable to read.

...of course, I expect that from another "slacker"

Nice one, MasterC and congrats on 10k - even when correcting people you always show a friendly, reassuring approach without putting people on the spot - best way - respect!
