For being a generally outstanding kind hearted all around good group of folks.
I just wanted to toss a note up here for all, I've got a few kind emails lately expressing similar feelings about Xweb as mine above and expressing thanks to me for my part in doing things to keep the forum alive and at least somewhat healthy (it can sometimes be remeniscent of the virtual version of X1/9 maintenance, ironically, but anyway...)
I just wanted to post to publicly thank you all as well for your respective parts played out here on Xweb over the years for better and/or worse in shaping this forum into what it has grown to be over the past ten years... a generally outstanding kind hearted all around good group of folks.
And to say I will reply to individuals' emails as time permits but I am going to be taking a little bit of extra offline downtime here in the immediate future to kind of "pull my head out of my"... monitor ...and recharge... So please do not take personally any delays in my replying to those emails. I am a luddite after all...
And, a special thank you goes out wholeheartedly from me personally to that particular segment of our user population who would have "normally" been perhaps shall we say "a bit more inclined" to throw a massive forum/email mutiny of protest over my decision making processes on the fly during recent events, for having chosen largely not to do so this time (or at least not after I had my 'mini-rant' about the matter a couple weeks ago). Your willingness to give me benefit of doubt and a little extra elbow room to work really made matters a whole lot less stressful for all involved, or imho anyway so thank you for that
Peace all. I am goin offline to try to do something fun and different today that has nothing to do with cars or the internet. That's how I tend to cheer myself up when I'm feeling down or about heavy topics. Last night Rose and I went spur of the moment on a Caribbean themed local cruise around the waterways of downtown Seattle which is put on once a year. Largely attended by the local Jamaican community and everyone on the boat is to dress in all white. It was a wild and wooly reggae rockin' boat. Nobody even cared when they sailed up the Duwamish to kill some time and there was nothing to see off the deck but stacks of shipping containers, they were too busy dancing and celebrating life and just generally having fun. My feet are killing me, I am hoarse from yelling so Rose could hear me above the din of music and celebratory atmosphere, my body aches all over, and someone spilled beer on my new white "island slacks" oh well! Maybe I'll just flop down and take a nap. That's different
