Nice fishing expedition, nanobyte. You brought me out of retirement. (for one post anyways)
But....I have come to bury Ceasar, not to praise him == Mark Antony
Like Mark, I launch into what I said I will not do.
Your post has pulled in many of those whom I would classify as quality posters. At least,
those who actually put work, thought, and professional pride into their posts. And these
are the folks that I enjoy - Good Reads All. Personal aspects confirm what their
posts have already shown. Unfortunately for the community, and in my opinion, the
growth here is only in numbers. Its getting harder to pan for the gold. But at least
a few new Gems show up from time to time. I bounced over last week and discovered
one that is now almost ten thousand views and growing fast. And in here, the post initiator
denys his expertise. (intentional pun) If JANES ever does an All-The-Worlds-Aircraft
20th Century Edition, I hope waynos is on their staff.
Keep an eye on Kyle == ...I guess it's a love/hate relationship...
That is a professional insite. (and a compliment, not an insult)
Now to bury Ceasar, and the point of this post.
(again, this is an acknowledgement of professional modesty and open-ness, not an insult)
Have any of you seen the identity theft commercial, particularly Off The Street, Valhall, and intelgurl ?
You know, the one where the guy is pawing thru the dumpster and picking up data. Then,
the user of the dumpster drives into the driveway and exits his car, as I pocket the
ID data. I casually say ....Hey, Duncan !.... as I wave and walk off, leaving a puzzled look
on Duncan's face.
