    Re: FIVE!

    I'd like to thank everyone here, from the casual visitors to the frequent contributors, from recent members to the regulars from previous incarnations of the Lounge. It's you who make this place special - a site to come for help, but also a world-wide community.

    OK, better stop before I become sentimental! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    This is a festive occasion, and it's almost Christmas, so we won't say anything about flagrant contributors! <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Wow! Five years! Time does fly by when we're having fun! Or at least it sure has for me! <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15> I appreciate this terrific resource and learn something new everytime I visit (which is everyday!!). The people involved with the lounge make it what it is and I am glad I've had the chance to be a tiny part of it!! <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15> for sharing so freely all the knowledge, friendship and fun! <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15> There have been serious and sad events covered in our Lounge too. it is amazing how people from all over pull together and respond with words of sympathy and support. There is no other place on the web like it!
    My toast and my thanks <img src=/S/coffeetime.gif border=0 alt=coffeetime width=32 height=48> Long live the Lounge!! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    >>This site is the GREATEST .

    I agree. It hasn't just perpetuated but also propelled my interest in VB coding, and the whole information technology area of expertise. (As a matter of fact, right now, it's the name of my major...) <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> So I'd like to extend a great

    <big><big><big>THANK YOU</big></big></big>

    To everyone here, moderators and loungers alike...everyone's input is awesome. <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>

    Re: FIVE!

    Congratulations and <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15> for everybody that contributes to this wonderful place.

    Retiring in 17 months I was asked to start thinking about the skills my successor would need and a learning / training / break in program to set him/her up. One-line answer: I show him around in the Lounge....

    Keep up the good work!

    I'll second that. I've gotten a whole lot from the Lounge, in so many ways, over the years. Lots of knowledge and lots of virtual buddies. Thanks to all.

    Re: FIVE!

    Yep, everything I know about VBA is either through a very old edition of VB for Dummies, sheer trial-and-error, or the Lounge. Mostly, of course, the Lounge. I wouldn't be able to do my job without it, nor without the friendship and humour in Skuttlebutt. The Lounge is the most user-friendly, and just downright friendly, internet forum I've ever come across. Congratulations to everyone involved, especially the administrators and moderators. I didn't have the pleasure of <img src=/S/eileen.gif border=0 alt=eileen width=17 height=15>'s acquaintance but I'm sure she'd be proud.

    Re: FIVE!

    Just to add my appreciation also....checked to see when I first registered (2003) and cant believe the knowledge and understanding of computerey things I've gained from the lounge posts. Thanks to all who devote their time to make it such a brilliant place.

    FIVE!

    Congratulations and thanks to Claude and all our Admin and Moderator team for making the Lounge the broad, deep, and persistent resource it is for us all. Great work!

    Re: FIVE!

    I'd like to join the chorus of "celebration" for this wonderful anniversary! The previous post inspired me to do a little digging through The Lounge for points of significance during my time here. I can't believe that in January I'll pass the two year mark as a Moderator! This occasion also reminded me to think once again of our dear Eileen and all she meant to this place. I don't want to get slobbery but I still remember responding to an early PM from her (in which she was "counselling" me about something!) with the fact that one of the reasons I love this place is: it's SAFE in here! I think you'll all know what I mean by that. Congratulations to all Loungers, everywhere!

    PS You'll note above that I usually try to remember to treat The Lounge as a proper noun - that's what it means to me...

    Re: FIVE!

    Thanks John. As most of you probably know, I've been catapulted into this place due to the deteriorating health of (the founder of this board) Eileen and the "disappearance" of Ian, taking over a massively complex set of Perl scripts (why we don't just call them programs I'll never know <img src=/S/thinks.gif border=0 alt=thinks width=15 height=15>), it has been very challenging, rewarding and enjoyable. I'm slowly starting to understand how it works <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    I've made a few changes, including adding all official national holidays of all the countries in the world, fixed a few bugs here and there and probably destroyed this and that unbeknownst to all of us her in his lounge <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Drinks are on me tonight, go ahead and enjoy <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
    Cheers, Claude.
