I'm totally freaking stunned . . .
« on: October 05, 2006, 07:04:18 PM »

by how quickly Bob made this whole thing happen.  It seems to me (one of the website uninitiated) that this must have taken some kind of tremendous effort.  So, I offer the following in Bob's honor:

BOB ROCKS . . . BOB ROCKS . . . BOB ROCKS
And now for a question.  Will there be some mass exodus over here from the old site?  I don't want to miss some big gossip or important news over there but, I also don't want to go over there some day and find it closed down.  For some odd reason I think that will really hurt.  I would rather just start coming here and not go back there.

I'm blushing. And humbled.

The software was free, and very easy to set up. All I had to do was enter the board names, and that was pretty much that. I'm using a basic install of SMF, without any of the tons of modifications (mods) and themes and such (although when the next version of SMF is released, there's a really cool theme I'm going to install).

I agree Joe. Thanks again, Bob! This is wonderful!

Also, I think the old MWF will be there through the end of October.

Bob, I don't care how easy it was, you still did a lot. You did this amazingly fast and it looks great. With a spellcheck, everyone is going to discover what a bad speller I am, but I can live with that.

Bob, I don't care how allegedly easy this software is, you've done an amazing job at lightning speed, and I can see you're still tinkering. I bet you're going to continue putting a lot of energy into this. Thanks again for taking the baton from Lauri. (Can't say that enough times.)

Now, speaking of tinkering, could you explain the parameters for wordsmiths and ink-stained wretches and expositors and their ilk? Inquiring minds want to know...

I have to join the chorus and say how great this place is, Bob.  :) Thanks for all of your hard work.  It is truly appreciated. I am  sad about the demise of the old site but I am already beginning to feel at home here.

And where did the uninvited frowning face with question marks come from?

Thanks, Zara.  I thought I did. Obviously I need to play with this thing.  And as I have already played, I'm afraid I may have unintentionally applauded or smitten someone. This worries me.

Do those smilies infiltrate our messages ?  They seem to be sitting there, waiting to jump.

There is no one at the old site.  Rather sad, that.

BOB!!!

I'm figuring the site out!  And enjoying it!

Thank you so much for all of your hard work. 

(And don't say it was nothing, because we know better.)
Thanks again,

Linda
