Uncle Deedah,

I remember when you went away, I was thinking about you today and wondering if you would come back, then I saw one of your posts. Maybe you have been back awhile and I just missed your posts.

How have you been doing since you went away? It's nice to see your name again.

Fine thank you. And you? BTW, I don't recall seeing you here before, but maybe I just missed your posts.

Ps, Deedah is a sucker for mysterious women with sexy sounding names, but don't tell the Mrs.

Me too Uncle Deedah. Was just getting to know you when ya left! Going to stick around a while? <:)=

-- Sysman (y2kboard@yahoo.com), April 01, 1999.

Sorry, you may be a mysterious woman, but "sysman" is not very sexy.

-- Uncle Deedah (oncebitten@twiceshy.com), April 01, 1999.

Come on now Unc, I mean I'm glad to see you have returned! <:)=

-- Sysman (y2kboard@yahoo.com), April 01, 1999.

An awesome responsibility Unc, all us wacky Yourdonites pining away for your Uncle-isms, and feeling all of a sudden as if the long night is o'er! (nudge, nudge, wink, wink, made ya look, didn't I?)

((((Uncle Deedah)))))

Glad to see you back unkee.

How's the new keyboard? Got that shift key fixed, huh.

We await your wisdom, and if not that, at least you sense of humor.

Much needed these days.

-- Greybear (greybear@home.com), April 01, 1999.

We've missed you! Hope that keyboard hasn't all of it's glitches tho.

Hey, I figured you were out teaching Dieter to type. Pro bono publico as it were.

Uncle Deedah

I've been lurking here for a long time. I did not post at all until recently, and now just a comment once in awhile. But, I read alot of what's posted. I am very familiar with the regulars and enjoy the banter back and forth. Also, this forum keeps me motivated in my y2k preperations.

The regular posters are the best. It is obvious that you all work hard to get current, credible information posted here.

I have noticed patterns in the postings. There are times when there are so many messages from newbies that it's impossible for me to get through them all. A lot of the messages are repetitious, and the information has already been hashed over. Then a week or two later things settle down again with a core of the old timers keeping the information flowing.

The amazing thing is that I was contemplating the patterns here when I thought of you. I was wondering if you would ever come back. And the next day there you were! It it is great to see you back.

BTW the threads I especially like are the geek/technical ones. Even though I don't understand much of the specifics, the conversations are interesting.

There always seems to be a dose of trolls. Makes me wonder why they spend so much time trying to discredit the value of y2k preperation. The only thing I can figure is that they are working to cause confusion amoung the newbies.

I'm here about two hours daily. When I have ventured forth and posted the responders have been nice, so I'm becoming braver.

I liked reading Paul Milne's messages! He was such a "tell it like I feel it" type of guy.

But, Uncle Dee you have the personality, you made me laugh alot.

Boy Uncle,

If Monique doesn't keep you here with that ...

We all missed you.

Glad your "handle" does have a "straight" keyboard shift to it.


-- Diane J. Squire (sacredspaces@yahoo.com), April 02, 1999.

Welcome back, Uncle Deedah!!!! Was wondering if you'd frequent this place again, just the other day...

-- Libby Alexander (libbyalex@aol.com), April 02, 1999.

I told ya he'd be back! This place "gets under your skin." :-)
