Amen, Brother Watchful!

Superb layout of discussion threads. Best we've seen on Net. We *do* need a search engine. Perhaps nobody imagined this Forum would grow so big?

Thank you, Mr. Greenspun, keep spinning smooth-as-silk thread structures for us Y2K Web bugs ;^D

Job well done, and I really like your dogs! They are great and very photogenic (sp).

Samoyeds rule!
When we were young we had two, a wolf-like male and a 2-years younger perfect adorable female. Huge fluffy furry happy dogs! Loyal, playful, intelligent, not real obedient :) They went *everywhere* with us. Our babies.

Fed 'em cottage cheese & steaks when young; they got really big, larger than most Sammies. Those were good years. Miss them. They each lived 12 years.

Enjoy, Mr. Greenspun!

Ashton & Leska in Cascadia, who still dream regularly about Gimli & Parsla

Kind of you to point it out, Watchful, Mr. Greenspun is doing us more than one good service with hihs considerable talents. It's not just the invaluable, probably life-saving information we absorb from herein, it's the ability to converse with others of like mind. I know of only two other Get Its in my area, one of them is Sweetie the other my best friend. Had brunch with a computer pro and her husband today, lots of fun, articulate, voluble, well-traveled people; when Y2K was gently mentioned (by me) there was a brief, hardly noticeable, sharp intake of breath sort of silence and the subject was changed. It wasn't don't-tell-them-we've-got-100lbs-of-rice-under-the-bed silence, it was theme-from-Twilight-Zone silence. Thanks for providing a means by which to tell we're not delusional.

Yes, Mr. Greenspun should be thanked, and often! Thanks, Watchful, for starting this thread. It wouldn't be overkill to start a similar "Thank you Mr. Greenspun" thread every now and again. This forum will undoubtedly see major traffic increases over the coming months, and Mr. Greenspun is very generous to host such an undertaking. This software is a workhorse!

I agree,Mr.Greenspun-whoever and where ever you are-I've learned alot from this forum. I, too, come here whenever my DGI's "convince" me that I'm a nut case. I appreciate the reality check here. newbiebutnodummy

I agree, well done! A small suggestion: it's possible to detect that a poster has not closed an HTML tag, and close it programatically. This would save some annoyance.
