    He is in the "Who's Online" window to the right of this text, and as soon as he showed up the spammers disappeared... coincidence? I think not. :)

    Now that I say that, however, he appears to be gone. :/

    John John John, why be so dramatic when a simple hip check down a long flight of stairs would do.

    If I reach that point, I probably don’t deserve to see it coming...

    Death by Heresy... I think I’d prefer something a little (or a lot) less painful, lol...

    Still here. Seventeen years and counting for me. Seen worse, although I was getting tired of seeing tedious threads about a Santa Claus vendetta or whatever that was about. Too early for Christmas and too soon to get some L800s under the tree.

    I eagerly await either a 'formal' review or a real end-user review of any of the new Legend models! I guess we'll get that PDQ with the L200 (which will be cool).

    First time for me. It was, well, an experience. One thing I did notice, was that once attacked, we all banded together, worked as a team, communicated, consoled each other, and endured.

    We're all still here! Whew! And, I may add, bonded together a bit more! ;)

    I’m learning a lot of new things from the speaker section these days. A lot.

    I may have to go to church. Or take a shower. OR, take a shower at church.
