    Yeah, time does fly.

    I remember a sales thread of yours, going back to early 2002. It was a huge thread and you sold heaps and heaps of servers there. I was just a tiny host back then (still am compared to the big boys ) and I just sat there in wonder, as all these servers were being bought.

    My 5th yr anniversery is this mth, but I signed up again, under a new username in Feb 2002. I should have just asked chicken to change my username.

    ha - yeah I remember that thread - it was like 1500 or so posts long - and kept going and going. that was back when the sales threads still bumped. I think my anniversary was actually in like may - but chicken banned me once and then I signed up under a different name that I liked better as well......lol

    that was back in the day of daily flame wars and crazy posts - the board was a little bit wild west.

    times have definately changed - definately for the better.

    I am afraid so but it also makes us wise

    reminds me of the fried green tomatoes movie - where the young girl cut the old lady off in the parking lot and said something like - I am young and fast too bad. and then the old lady starts bashing her vw bug with her big cadilac and the young girl in shock says what are you doing??? she says you may be young and fast but I have more insurance than you.......ahahahah

    The time has gone by fast it seemed like only yesterday since I signed up.
    I can't believe 3 - 4 years has gone by this quickly, but good memories.

    Yeah, things are more placid and sterile these days (thanks to a rule for everything and a small army of mods to enforce them), compared to back then. I prefer how things were, being a little wilder, but am flexible enough to adapt and move with the times.

    Blessed are the flexible for they will not get bent out of shape.

    Five years?

    Five years!?

    How can one maintain their sanity around these parts for so long?







    Congrats on maintaining yours.

    Hey Jeff,

    Not much to add, but just wanted to say it is has been a pleasure getting to know you these past few years. One great thing about Jeff is that he is always willing to help where he can and is always up front about any situation. Anyone who has met Jeff will know that and if you look through some of his posts you will get a feel for that as well.

    I registered back here in January 2002 but like Bob 'lurked' for a bit before then. Since then I have been a “Advertising Forum Moderator”, “Moderator” “Community Leader” and now just back to being a good old member again. Hopefully over the past few years I have contributed some good to the community, even if my daily average post count has now dropped back to 1.5... that's what happens when work takes over

    I think events like HostingCon are great because it let’s us all get together and put faces to forum names. It is always a pleasure to meet up with the likes of sailor and others who I have known online for several years.

    Congrats on making it to five years Jeff... ten will be here before we know it

    - Chris
