Many of you will have come across <!profile=HansV>HansV<!/profile> here in the Lounge and will know him to be one of the most amusing, knowledgeable and helpful citizens of this planet, and today he made his 50,000th post here - a remarkable achievement by any standard.

It typical fashion, he has attempted to pass on some of the credit for this accomplishment onto us mere mortals by claiming he couldn't have done it without us. That as may be, but Hans - without you, the Lounge would be a poorer place indeed.
