Well unless Vbulletin screws up, this should be post number 200 for me taking me into "godhood".

First I'd like to start by thanking Duster, Annette, Martie, BC, angela,...I know I'm forgetting others, and DanielP without you guys and some of our discussions, I could have not made it this far.

I'd also like to send a big thanks to the staff of BurstNET and TrueHosting (the old owner), your lack of support and nasty e-mails have helped me to achieve my current status. Thanks Guys!!

Next I'd like to thank my wife Angela, she's stuck with me through thick and thin.

Lastly I'd like to thank....sniff....sniff....the general users of this board. I take this award knowing that I've helped or confused several of you in your quest for the perfect host.

Well, Mike, welcome to Olympus ;-D (even though I renounce any knowledge of godhood). At least your acceptance speech was shorter than most at Emmy and Oscar awards.

Dana,

How interesting that a synonym for your new hosting company is so like that of such a horrid defunct company. :-) You can only be better.

I thought of a slogan that goes along with your little cyanotic friend, " our service will leave you breathless"

LOL @ Duster!

Welcome to Mt. Olympus, Mike.... We've got a few spare portfolios you can manage if you like... Uhmmmm... Let's see...

*rummages through file cabinet* Uhmmmm.... Messaging's taken (by Duster for Mercury)... Uhmmm... Beauty's taken (by Annette for Venus).... Chicken's taken the portfolio of the sea (underwater Chicken? sorry - no animal God, unless you want to have a sex transplant and become Ceres)... And I've taken the Sun and music (as Apollo)... Zeus has been reserved.... So what would you like to be? Cupid? Vulcan? Mars? Bacchus?


Anyway, welcome up - remember, you can't fall down from here! :p

Venus? I think you have lost your mind, BC. You obviously haven't seen any pics of me.

I think I'd rather be Prometheus, all things considered. Or maybe Vesta (Hestia if you're a Greek mythology buff) or Juno (Hera)...

BTW, BC, we're at this very moment watching NBC for a live tape of the opening ceremonies of the festivities Down Under. Now if we could only get them to show some of the fencing matches in addition to the more well-known or popular sports.

Sorry Annette, I've already seen the cam, and I think you're worthy to be Venus (unless you really don't want to be, in which case you can be Juno).

I watched the entire ceremony from start to finish last night - it was quite extraordinary. And it was an inspired choice to have ***** ******* take the torch. (in case you haven't watched the entire thing) Quite extraordinary - it's made a believer out of a cynic like me.

In fact, right at this moment, the 400m freestyle trials are going, and Ian Thorpe's taking it at half pace, for a 3:45:00 swim - 2-3 seconds ahead of the rest. He's a super-freak.

Actually, I've already been to olympics.com (nice site - ranks with the Nagano site from 98, which was also very well done), so I've already seen the final torchbearer and osme of the first results from competition.

I'm quite impressed thus far, both with the ceremonies and with the sheer beauty of the country. One of the things on the master to-do list for us is to visit Australia, among other places (a couple of clients in Malaysia, Singapore, and Argentina have volunteered to be tour guides, should we visit their countries).

The only thing I could do without is the constant over-commentary. However, the Aussie accent of some of the interviewees more than makes up for it.

Tee hee! I'll volunteer to be a tour guide if you like, when you *eventually* get down to Australia and happen to be around my neck of the woods....

And yes, I have to say the commentary so far has been rather disappointing. And it's worse when you're used to the accents. Greg (akashik) will know precisely who I'm talking about when I'm whinging about Garry Wilkinson and Bruce McAvaney.

Funniest line so far:

Bob Costas (during the parade of nations): "The Central African Republic is located in central Africa."

Thanks for the tip, Bob.

*lol* I know EXACTLY what you mean. We're not too good at commentary in this country. Whatever the rest of the world thinks about americans, they do know how to do TV well We have a bit to learn in that regard.

Speaking of americans, what it is with you guys and our accents. My fiance (an amercian) is the same and digs our backward, convict induced, slurring attempts at good speech. *chuckle*

As for that opening ceremony I have to admit I was pretty non-interested at first till I took a look at it. I was looking forward to more of those ghasty blow-up kangaroos on bicycles, or something equally as horrid, but what I saw what actually damn impressive! In fact, until John Farnham and Olivia Newton-John started up I was enjoying it a lot! Nice to see someone actually earnt their pay check.

As I type this Australia's just got it's first silver medal in the triathlon *Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi*

My only issue is, not having cable means I miss the 24 hr a day, 16 days of Simpsons!
