    Five and four zeroes

    OK, folks, here it is - my fifty thousandth post.

    Four and a half years ago, when I became a member of Woody's Lounge, I couldn't have imagined that I would ever reach this milestone. Becoming a BronzeLounger (1200 posts) seemed an almost impossible target. In fact, I never formally became a BronzeLounger, because I was invited to become a WMVP shortly after I became a 5StarLounger. I was absolutely flabbergasted when I received a PM from Woody!

    In the beginning, it was often frustrating: while I was busy composing a reply, Francois or Charlotte or Legare would already have posted a better reply. But gradually, as I became more familiar with the kind of questions asked, and more experienced in using the Lounge, my speed increased, so now I often frustrate others. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    All this would have been impossible without all of you - if you hadn't asked all those questions, I couldn't have posted all those replies! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
    But seriously, I have thoroughly enjoyed helping others, and I have learned a tremendous amount from the Lounge - both from the fantastic replies posted by others, and by doing research for my own replies. Thanks to all of you!

    I would also like to thank the WMVPs, Moderators and my fellow-Administrators for their support, feedback, criticism and friendship. Special thanks go to Charlotte for teaching me a lot about Microsoft Access (even before I became a member), to Leif for having become a personal friend, to Mike (Wolfman) for keeping the hardware running (if the power company cooperates <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>), to Claude for maintaining and tweaking the software, and last but not least to Woody for making it all possible. And of course to the late Eileen, who made the Lounge the great place it is.

    Oh, and although the competition was called off, congratulations to Skitterbug anyway - have an extra <img src=/S/coffeetime.gif border=0 alt=coffeetime width=32 height=48>

    Re: Five and four zeroes

    Hans,

    When I P.M.'ed you I hadn't noticed you had already opened a thread.
    There's little I can add to the above warm words. Good job!

    Congratulations!

    I'm still struggling to make 5StarLounger because someone (can't think who!) keeps beating me to the punch in the Access forum!
