Attention Al-D : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

To Al-D from Gordon,

I am going to offer some advice with the best of intentions. Perhaps you have noticed (I hope so) that there are only so many new threads posted on the opening page. As each new posting is made, it causes the one on the bottom to go off, into the archives. Thus, anyone who is looking at this site will only see postings for 2 days, more or less, if the forum is active with new questions. So, personally, I get a kick out of your ideas and thinking, but you are starting so many new posts that it cheats others of proper exposure. Now, this is really easy to solve. What you should do, is only start ONE new thread for each day, but title it real cool, IN CAPS, with something like AL-D THOUGHTS FOR TODAY. Then as you think of more things, just go back to that posting and add the new thought there. You will get some really great big long postings, with lots of answers, trust me, but you won't use up the limited lines of new threads allowed. Does that sound OK to you? I promise I will look in on your "daily word" and even comment, along with others. Deal?

Thanks to Gordon for pointing this out. I too enjoy Al's postings but they were kinda hoggin the available New Question threads.

BTW I'm feeling kinda like a GI failure, the only negative response I've recieved was DieTEr tellin me to die.

Got hate mail?

Speaking of DiETer, how can we alert him when we need his help. Can we install a bat-signal on the roof so we wouldn't be so defensless against JaCKaLs and hYeNAs?

Mike, that's a sign of affection in Dieter's book. See, it's the first three letters of his name. He likes you!
