Dang, I was gonna ring in my 6th yr. beginning on this one of a kind forum, but was probably too busy hijacking threads.

No, all seriousness aside, it has been quite a trip. I have learned an emmense amount of information for free; enjoyed some great humor, met many on here that I am proud to call my friends.
And, from the bottom of my heart, am truly sorry for the half dozen or so posts that may not have been as informative and enlightening as they should have been. Also please excuse me for not always posting a silly little face when a post was tongue-in-cheek, or whatever.
Long live Pond Boss magazine and forum. Thanks for the ride, Mr. Lusk et al.

Yep DD1 ( in his prior name DD) has been around since early 02 and probably before that on the old version. \:o

There are a few 02s and a bunch of 04s around.

Several 4-22-02s so that must be the start date.

Happy aniversary, Burger!

Glad to know you (no, I mean really)!

Good post Burger. Although I've never had the pleasure of meeting anyone here, and I am not a prolific poster, I do stop by and read this forum often and enjoy the familiar people and new arrivals with their stories of ponds and life in general. I like the fact that there are a bunch of people that I feel I have known for quite some time which is fairly unique in the computer world.

I've never let that stop me!

I've even been known to post things that caused a little heartburn. ;\)

Who, you? Nah.

Actually Cecil and I were a few of the early posters on the previous site. Cody showed up not long after. One of my old PB mags has a small ad saying to watch out for the Forum that they were going to put on.

That was when I was so ignorant about ponds that I didn't know it.

Now I've learned enough to know just how little I've scratched the surface.

It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Been a good ride, Burgermeister. Your astrology lessons are further proof of your high caliber postology as you pushed the envelope of learning within this forum. Sometimes I yearn for the good ol' days.

Congrats Burger!!!
Hey, george was a member in 2002 and they got uppity on me and I had to change my name to george 1, so does that count?
Actualy I was lurker on the old Q&A black and white site but didn'get up the nerve to post until the new site was formed.

I knew the names of Lusk, Baird, Cody, and Davidson, not realizing that some day they would become my freinds.

Thanks Bob Lusk - Cecill Baird - Bill Cody - Dave Davidson for the memories!

You know, that's too funny. When Dave used to have a tag line...'been logged on since before PB was in color"...I thought that was just a joke.
Congrats to all you dudes with nothing better to do. \:D You guys are still the backbone of the forum.

Brettski, the atrology sessions just would not be the same anymore.

Just note...Pluto is no longer even a planet. Several of Jupiter's moons are on shaky ground. U'ran-us...who knows what it's fate will be. No more tin foil pointy hats, no more streetlight gazing, no more foil lined work shops. I too yearn for the good ole days.

Just be glad the judge did not point at you from the bench and say " boy your _____ is mine now". That is when you know you are in trouble. \:o

Burger, That sounds like college to me, without beer. You are holding the pebble, man.

Nope but I have seen it happen. It was warranted in the situation.
