A TOAST, better scratch that, a SALUTE, to Diane, Kevin and all the other Yourdonite news hounds!

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Before I became a regular here, I would visit Sanger's, euy2k, Gary North and a half-dozen other Y2K sites for my news. Now when I go back there, it seems like they are all posting old stuff. I think I speak for all of us by saying I really do appreciate all the hard work and research you do in bringing very important information to this forum. Thanks to you, we are the leading edge Y2K site!!!!!

And to our host Mr. Yourdon, thank you for bringing us together and making all this possible.

End of happy venting. <:)=

Sysman; Absolutely ditto. First class post!

-- Watchful (seethesea@msn.com), March 08, 1999.

i totally agree.

-- jocelyne slough (jonslough@tln.net), March 08, 1999.

...and AMEN to you Sysman.


I think we all would like to thank the members of the Academy, our agent Mr. Greenspun, who made this forum's technology possible. We would also like to thank Diane "The Queen of Latte's" for her gophering and undying support of community in the face of flames, arrows and lovesick trolls. Thanks to Kevin and Andy for frightening all of us to conciousness, to Robert Cook P.E., who lends intelligence to disputing emotional drivel.

Ummmmm, I know I have a time limit before the Henry Mancini Orchestra plays this years' showtunes, but there's just sooooo many! We wish to thank Puddintame, Bardou, Donna Barthuley, Arnie Rimmer, Arlin H. Adams, Linda A., Drew Parkhill of CBN, Busy@, rick blaine -Big Dog and Spidey for hope in patriots and especially Ashton & Leska in that Mythical land that is Cascadia. Thanks to E. Coli and Nikoli Krushev for helping us see history as it was and is, not what they want us to. To Paul Milne for making us see possibilities.

My personal thanks to Greybear for making us all laugh, put use to useless advertising lingos and help us realize the full military potential for beans.

And of course we cannot ever forget to show our love and respect for Mr. Ed Yourdon for making this Forum possible in the first place, tackling trolls and persecutions and who is this year's recipient of The Year 2000 Achievement for Waking Up the Most Yokels Award! Love and kisses to you Ed!

We would also like to point out in the Susan Sarandon portion of our diatribe here that the Western Society is endangered by reckless abandondonment of.....----------(gentle but firm motions by satin- gold-gowned bimbette and forum presenters to shut me up and get off stage-- WHILE SMILING)

Thanks all.

So many make this forum possible and exciting, that it's Y2K essential -- and fun -- to post and to study here.

A Hardliner Salute Back!!! To Ed and ALL the Yourdonites!


(Sure, wish the latest JBD clone would post under "its" own ID and not mine. Any Suggestions? Thanks. *Sigh*)

-- Diane J. Squire (sacredspaces@yahoo.com), March 08, 1999.

Diane, how about The Bagga Saga Episode V: The Clone Wars?

-- INVAR (gundark@aol.com), March 08, 1999.

Diane - "So when life hands you lemons, make lemonade ..."

You're doing just fine. Keep it up and maybe "baby" will get frustrated and go play somewhere else, like in traffic! <:)=

-- Sysman (y2kboard@yahoo.com), March 08, 1999.


Thank you for the kind words. And thanks to everyone for making this forum a great source of Y2K news.

-- Kevin (mixesmusic@worldnet.att.net), March 08, 1999.

I agree with all the praise, and I would like to point out one technical aspect of this system that makes it very efficient. On some systems EACH post is a separate web page. Here all the posts on a single question are combined into one web page.

One my computer, this REALLY speeds up reading the posts. I get bored on other bulletin boards, waiting for each post, and bouncing back to pick the next post.

So, thanks to Greenspun et. al. for setting up such a simple system.

-- David Holladay (davidh@brailleplanet.org), March 08, 1999.

Don't leave out Old Git and Critt Jarvis. Did someone say Flint and Paul Davis?

-- Puddintame (dit@dot.com), March 08, 1999.

Aren't they up for Best Supporting Posters?

-- INVAR (gundark@aol.com), March 08, 1999.

We bow to each and every one of you.

Thank you for spending the time, effort, brain energy, and heart warmth posting so much zapping information and dialogue here!

Ashton & Leska in Cascadia, the not-mythical wetlands, fading into legend already ... LOL!

God bless all of you and keep this Forum on track to survive and thrive.

Too, too many to name, and I have special place in my heart for each one of you. And Ed. I've abandonned all but search engines except this forum...my Internet community and Y2K friends...

Greybear with his usual blinding quick speed and ever vigilent watching, has just now noticed this thread and does not want to be thought remiss.

These words are but pixels on a screen and megnetic spots somewhere on a disk. But they are all I have to give here and will have to suffice.

Ed and Phil, you have done our society a great service beyond the apparent. You have saved lives. I thank you. MaMa Bear and the Cubs thank you. You have added immesurably to our lives.

This wacko ward has provided a place not only for the treatment of the terminally worried but a place that has moved many people into preparations that will save their lives. Both of you have a spot waiting for you in the Bear Den anytime you need it.

As for the rest of you ....you have helped me see that there is in our world today an element that is civil, gentle, funny, stout harted, and give me what hope I have for the future of our society. Each of you have contributed to the betterment of our world.

The Bears crystal ball has turned too dark to see anything in it. So he has to look around him. What he see are you people. He sees hope. And that's all he needs. All he really has to add that is of any value is - NEVER GIVE UP!

I want to add Hardliner here for a special note of thanks. He has helped the ol Bear see that there is in fact hope for the Militaly.

One other that has made a significant contribution here is Uncle. He who lurks. I' sure that I express the good thoughts of the others here when we wish you the best in what ever he DoES thEse dAYs. And a big tip if the hat to E. Coli whever he is.

Any or all of you are welcome to come around any day (yell out at the gate and ID yourself) and sit for a spell and have some beans and spam. We'll put on a pot of coffee since it's ya'll.

Man, wouldn't it be a ball if we could all get together in person.

And "Goodnight Mrs. Calabash, where ever you are."

-- Greybear, I gotta million of 'em

-- Greybear (greybear@home.com), March 08, 1999.

Ya know Greybear, I kinda like the idea of getting together. It's way too early to even think about, but if we do get thru this mess, I'm sure we could all use a big party! Something to keep in mind for sure. <:)=

-- Sysman (y2kboard@yahoo.com), March 09, 1999.

Now shouldn't the folks at Entertainment Tonight do a special about the gear and outfits we all sported during tonight's Award ceremonies?

I personally like the RealTree Alice Pack that Mr. Milne had on. That was a Calvin Klein custom was it not?

Great flannels Greybear!

Ed does dapper proud in coat and tails of bobcat.

Amazing what they can do with burlap these days, right Diane?

Lisa Gibbons eat your heart out!

-- INVAR (gundark@aol.com), March 09, 1999.

I salute you (and thank you for all of your hard work!)
