Temptation : Is it too great? - 01/29/07 08:40 PM

Temptation !

Gizmo your not allowed to post in this thread.
Or is the Temptation Too Great lol...


Ive started this thread as a Gizmo Free Zone.
We plan to prevent Gizmo's post count from climbing
With "I agree" - "My Thoughts" - "Hmmm" etc...
All in good fun....
We could talk about how great IE7 is to tease a reply.
You know we love you really...


Do you like IE7 or your thoughts on the relase of vista smile
Or i could be forced to post another Number Six Puzzel lol

[Edited by Gizmo]: Never said anything about editing your post... You suck. That is all wink...

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 01/29/07 10:38 PM

Well cause he ignored my request of amending which doesn't allow any feedback - that is the real temptation. An edit at least gives some recourse. wink

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 01/30/07 12:05 AM

Its like having a ghost in here lol...

we know he's not allowed to post,
but i can feel an echo of his presents lol....

Just read a review on Vista,
which was what i expected, and fairly fair and it summerised
with "Where's the WOW?"

With the advice to leave it alone for 12months for a service
pack or two....

I'm sure im going to get one of those echos again lol wink

Posted By: David Dreezer

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 01/31/07 11:03 PM

Jack Bauer? 24? Never seen it.

Why is it these TV guys can shoot guns, blow up bombs, crash cars, and dive out windows, never wearing hearing protection, and are not deaf? That makes me say hmmmm.
Posted By: ntdoc

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 01/31/07 11:14 PM

LOL - Cause it's our own imagination that allows it grin

Just like when you see a LAW rocket blow up an entire building. They never worked that way for me in the Army.

Overall though I still enjoy the show. Better than a lot of things that are on at that time.
Posted By: David Dreezer

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 01/31/07 11:55 PM

They didn't work for me that way either. Unless that building has an ammo magazine for the LAW to bounce into....

On the other hand I did have my ears ringing for a week or two due to losing my hearing protection one night just before a live fire exercise in Basic Training. Me being too afraid to tell a Drill that I'd screwed up I went and ran a couple hundred rounds through my M-16 with no hearing protection. I remember how badly that hurt and how long my ears rang. That's why when I see this stuff in movies and TV it puts me off totally.

Which takes me back to my first sentence. Never seen it. Doubt I ever will.

Yeah I used to pitch overhand softball for about 4 years before I went in the Army and I pitched the grenade like a softball. That pissed off the instructor as I nearly hit the top of the wall as he jumped on me and slammed us both to the ground. eek

LOL - AH! The good old days.

That happened to someone in our company. Clipped the top of the wall, but it did bounce over. I didn't see it as I was in a throwing position down the line. I heard it was one really scary moment there at the time.

Although, isn't that against the rules.

Poor guy, we've made 10 pages of posts and he can only look, but not touch. He must feel like Tantalus, though I daresay Gizzy's "crime", if you will, is an infinite number of degrees less criminal.

Which reminds me, what exactly was Gizzy's crime?

This is the sketch...

Scene: A cafe. One table is occupied by a group of Vikings wearing horned helmets. Whenever the word "spam" is repeated, they begin singing and/or chanting. A man and his wife enter. The man is played by Eric Idle, the wife is played by Graham Chapman (in drag), and the waitress is played by Terry Jones, also in drag.
Man: You sit here, dear.
Wife: All right.
Man: Morning!
Waitress: Morning!
Man: Well, what've you got?
Waitress: Well, there's egg and bacon; egg sausage and bacon; egg and spam; egg bacon and spam; egg bacon sausage and spam; spam bacon sausage and spam; spam egg spam spam bacon and spam; spam sausage spam spam bacon spam tomato and spam;
Vikings: Spam spam spam spam...
Waitress: ...spam spam spam egg and spam; spam spam spam spam spam spam baked beans spam spam spam...
Vikings: Spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam!
Waitress: ...or Lobster Thermidor a Crevette with a mornay sauce served in a Provencale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with truffle pate, brandy and with a fried egg on top and spam.
Wife: Have you got anything without spam?
Waitress: Well, there's spam egg sausage and spam, that's not got much spam in it.
Wife: I don't want ANY spam!
Man: Why can't she have egg bacon spam and sausage?
Wife: THAT'S got spam in it!
Man: Hasn't got as much spam in it as spam egg sausage and spam, has it?
Vikings: Spam spam spam spam... (Crescendo through next few lines...)
Wife: Could you do the egg bacon spam and sausage without the spam then?
Waitress: Urgghh!
Wife: What do you mean 'Urgghh'? I don't like spam!
Vikings: Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!
Waitress: Shut up!
Vikings: Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!
Waitress: Shut up! (Vikings stop) Bloody Vikings! You can't have egg bacon spam and sausage without the spam.
Wife: I don't like spam!
Man: Sshh, dear, don't cause a fuss. I'll have your spam. I love it. I'm having spam spam spam spam spam spam spam beaked beans spam spam spam and spam!
Vikings: Spam spam spam spam. Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!
Waitress: Shut up!! Baked beans are off.
Man: Well could I have her spam instead of the baked beans then?
Waitress: You mean spam spam spam spam spam spam... (but it is too late and the Vikings drown her words)
Vikings: Spam spam spam spam. Lovely spam! Wonderful spam! Spam spa-a-a-a-a-am spam spa-a-a-a-a-am spam. Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Spam spam spam spam!

Play hell for spamming? maybe. Depends upon where. Back when I ran a racing sim game site I'd have been an unhappy camper for spamming in a rules discussion forum, but I might have been thrilled to see it in the off topic forum. Probably would have participated too.

CSS made me nuts for a while too. Now I try not to overcomplicate it and have more fun that way. laugh

CSS is easy once you know how to toy with it; and if you don't want to learn, hire me to do it :smircs:

Span if i want to say do a menu ?

Good guesses ?? or not?

It's not really preferance, it's requirement; some elements will only work in a div wink.

I couldn't care less about the written exam -- it was the morse code test I sweated over!! (I never did take the Advanced exam, tho... stopped at General Class. Hear the rules are much different now, tho, so you probably lucked out tongue )

There was no "online" when *I* took the test. I gave all that DX up once I got online -- cuz everything is now 599. wink I was doing RTTY anyway... I still say it's the precursor to the internet. wink

I take that back. It's not a pancake. It's a waffle. At least it doesn't have syrup and butter.

That reminds me. When are they going to open up a waffle house up here? Yes, I said that.

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 03/05/07 10:53 PM

Personally, i'm enjoying 7.1 ever so much.

My Journey has been a rough one but glad that i'm hear now.

Classic -- >> Threads

Web host would not allow a mysql of +100mb
So i had to leave and get my own dedicated server.

Luckly enough i have a friend in the industry
and pointed me in the right direction and helped
me set it up and get it on line.

As a complete nooobie at this, it was grey hair
and frustration at levels i hadnt experienced before.
But it eventually got easier.

Classic --->> to new server smile
Classic --->> to threads smile

And now almost 6 months down the line, i'm so happy
with everything now, and help from friends and the
occasional Gizmo and Rick.

I'm there and proud of it.
So you can see, i have personally been to hell and back
to keep within the ubb frame work.

But glad i'm hear....

As battery dies on laptop, and my little story
comes to an end.

Got board for the first time this week and its only Monday lol

I've been called worse, however. That's one I don't mind at all. I mean, I do own a Vette. I guess it fits.

For instance, the MMORPG i play (The Realm Online) we can't get working under WINE; however I have heard of people getting ChoiceMail One running under WINE...

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 03/10/07 02:41 AM

Thanks Dave.

I've considered switching off Windows, but I just haven't put in the effort to really commit. I might take another look at a few distros after I get an extra box back up and running. All that I really need is an email and FTP client and a few browsers.

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 03/10/07 03:09 AM

Maintenance is really easy anymore...

Examples:
Gentoo - Comes with "emerge", installing is a breeze, example: emerge MythTV
CentOS/Fedora - Both RedHat builds, CentOS is the equivelant to RedHat Enterprise however; both come with "yum", which is used much as emerge on Gentoo, only they're both more user friendly for install and usage. Ex: yum install utility, yum upgrade utility

I default to 35 posts/replies per page on my forum, and, here, in my personal settings.

It was even more than that years ago, until some WebTV people told me that more than 35 didn't work for them.

It's the right amount for me - no unnecessary clicking NEXT or anything. And chit loads up just as fast as 10. Why call the server more often than you need to? wink
Posted By: Mark S

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 03/20/07 08:51 AM

I default to about 50 per page.
But as my mouse is getting older the wheel on my mouse is now
feeling the miles and miles of scrolling.

There comes a time in a Mouses life they have to
admit that they getting old and they cant scroll as
fast as they used too?

Its a partnership that has lasted for years and years,
after scrolling through disasters and holidays
a mouse and its wheel really is a Mans Best Friends.

And it doesnt help chasing a FUZZY BUNNY around either lol

Nah, you guys respond just to respond. tongue

Here's an addon idea, make posts "rated" to where you get a point if the post keeps a rating of 3 or more and you loose a rating if it goes below 3... tongue

Just kidding... ?

He makes a good setup man because it's totally not planned and totally honest.

It just kind of evolved. We've both been around a long time. I was reminded that I've been with the company a day or two over 7 years now and was involved with the company for a fair while before that. Allen's been here pretty near as long and Gizzy's an old vet too. We've spent a lot of time bantering during that time. It helps that I think really highly of Allen having met him in person, and Gizzy too.

And of course Rick. We see each other regularly and get along great. There's a lot of trust that makes this all go and makes it as fun as it is.

Personally, I'm glad that someone sees it. I'm going to take it as a compliment to all of us.

I would end up so caffinated I was jittery, and couldn't sleep at nights... I rather enjoyed it wink...
Posted By: Rick

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 04/17/07 07:46 PM

I haven't had a caffeinated drink in at least 12 years. Even the slightest bit makes my body go into overdrive so I avoid it entirely wink
Posted By: Mark S

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 04/17/07 09:35 PM

They done a test on the TV

2 people 2 types of coffee 1 DECAF and 1 CAFINATED

And they gave them there coffee for a week without telling them who was dirinking what.

It was all about the myth or Truth that coffee gives you wings as in makes you more alert.

Anyway with out boaring your too much,
it showed that after the withdrawl symptoms of coming off Cafeen - headaches. There was no diffrence in the reaction
times from the person that used cafine and the Decafe user.

Wasnt a Mythbusters Show. But just goes to show you
that you dont need cafine to improve your reaction times.

Personally its the only addiction i have now
after stopping smoking i think that will be next on my list.

Bit of usless information seeing that i have no bugs to report.

Heh, reminds me of some clinical trials I took part in many years ago.

It was during the development of the original Police 'intoximeter' which they use to test for drink drivers.

Half the study group had to drink a third of a pint of neat vodka and the other half drank a placebo (water)

...and we and the doctors weren't supposed to know who was drinking what laugh laugh laugh oh bloody hell - laugh!

And I got paid £150 for doing that - three times!!!

Well a cruise can be a great experience depending on where you go and with whom. There are times when extended "out to sea" time can get boring if you don't have some good company along with you.

Take the time Rick, I'm sure you'll be glad you did.
Posted By: Mark S

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 05/27/07 09:54 PM

Problem with a Cruise is if your not happy you have to wait until you dock !

Either that or its a "Man overboard" lol

I'm going to wait until i'm really really old before i think of a cruise.

I would go insane at the pace of the dam boat,
think i could have travelled the globe in the time its taken to cross this god dam English Channel lol...

Thanks Mark. I got a menu-maker from Sothink - and it's the coolest thing ever. It takes minutes to make even a complex menu, it spits out the javascript as well as a noscript script for search engines, and it also does sitemaps.

Most of the pages on my non-forum pages have page menus, and I did all those with the Sothink menu-maker too. Updates are a snap. smile

yeh i have that sothink running on some of my webpages,
well DHTML

But there can be issues with search engines not following links,
hence a site map wink

very tidy - liked the look of it all good work.

What a waste... Of:
1. Time
2. Life (comeon, what GOOD has she done)
3. Maccup (she's not that GOOD looking in the first place, lets lather on that face paint)
4. Money, not just her parents which she'll blow on, well, blow... but the money taken to house her for 3 days (granted it was only like $150)

A complete joke. Apparently she was put on house arrest due to medical conditions. From what I've heard so far is that medical condition is the fact that she's been refusing to eat most of the prison food. Maybe that's just a rumor, but that's what is going around so far. No matter what the case, it just makes our legal system look stupid.

Ian, here's a great "feel better" recipe for the flu.

- Juice from about 3 or 4 lemons
- Couple of tablespoons of honey
- Two asprin crushed up
- A shot of whiskey
- Top it all up with hot water in a big glass

It doesn't cure it, but it'll make you feel better for a bit. It'll help with the 44 Magnum thoughts anyway. smile
Posted By: Rose

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 06/08/07 11:33 AM

I agree with all of you about Paris Hilton. Oh gee .. what a farce. But I actually think her punishment will go beyond jail. She's lost a HEAP of fans, and 90% of people have exactly the same opinion as we all do.

NOT a popular lady (and I use that word very loosely). laugh

Mark, from Orlando it's not so loud, but loud enough so that you know it HAS to be loud there. We're about 70 miles away (I think). smile

Driv, you're right about Aussies going to England being a rite of passage. So many do it because they can make it a working holiday. Not so in the U.S., because it's illegal to work here without a permit. I've been to England too, but when I was a little girl.

I know so many Aussies - most of them either work in gyms or pubs.
(Not meaning to stereotype.)

But that's cool.

You guys have a real 'upbeat' attitude towards life.
The guys in my gym are the *best* personal trainers I've ever met.
They are genuinely into what they do.

Auntie Bessies chemically enhanced crap?
Oh dear God no.....



Real Roasties....

Skin the spuds
Parboil for 5-8 mins.

Drain, shake & bruise with flour


MAJOR EDIT - My wife has just told me...
You should put a roasting tray/ pan into the oven for 15 mins first, so that the oil is hot. This helps give the spuds the 'correct' colour and consistency.

What the heck do I know?



Roast for 1hr 20-30 mins with a clove of garlic....

Even these don't look anyware near as good as my missus does.

Looks like they aven't been bruised - says me, the guy who can't boil water.....

Then kick the crap out of it for the full abuse effect.

he was dying frown

Wow - that's amazing!
I feel a sudden rush of intelligence.

The only problem is, I'm now on page 32.
I've lost a whole 48 pages.

Shall I make a seperate post in "How do I" to find out how to get them back? wink

OMG! You guys have been VERY chatty. I saw 54 new posts, and it cracked me up that apart from "roasties" and "yorkshire puddings", nothing much had been said.

Having said that, that's why I like this thread. Because it's just a load of cwap. smile

I know what yorkshire puddings are - my mother used to make them all the time. Roasties got me though, until I saw the picture. Australians just call them "roast potatoes" .. original, huh? smile

I had a busy weekend - believe it not, none of it had anything to do with technology in the slightest! (What's up with THAT?) Hubby and I did a heap of gardening - put in some new stuff, removed others that we're sick of, etc.

Anyway, as usual, you guys make me laugh. laugh

I have a nice garden, but it can be hard work at times,

She can keep fit & I can enjoy a nice lawn.

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 06/12/07 04:51 PM

I do not know anything about it sorry frown

To be honest to cover a sport I need an enthusiastic moderator who can look after it smile

I am always open to new sports - problem is I only have one pair of hands, as I run the entire site virtually single handed frown frown
Posted By: Mark S

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 06/12/07 05:11 PM

other hand on the JD wink

wow if your on you're own that's amazing wink

well done to you...

enthusiastic moderator - is like rocking horse poo lol
Posted By: Ian

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 06/12/07 06:14 PM

I wish I wasn't - I have two other admins, who to be honest go as far as approving change of names, and the odd post edit, but that is about it. I wish I had some hands on people - who would assist. However I am grateful for what those two guys can do.

However the last post in our moderators forum was at the beginning of October '06 and there has been one post this year in the admin forum this year, and that was back in April.

So even our moderators take very little part in the site outside of their own forum.

I'm glad I'm not a beta-tester. That's what I do all day at work .. well, perhaps alpha-testing. And that's in between what I'm SUPPOSED to be doing. smile

Mark, how do you make those icons so fast?

Ian, I only have one moderator. That's probably my fault though - I'm too much of a control freak. How's the flu?

Mark - what are you using to make the gifs? Excellent laugh
Posted By: Mark S

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 06/12/07 11:03 PM

I use Image Ready (Adobe)
but you can use any gif animation software really.

Just animation, there all single letters tied together
frame by frame. Some can be easy and some more difficult.
Very Very Dificult to make them from scratch,
its easier to rob someone elses work and tweak it wink
Dont shout it the norm on the net. lol

Main Forum index

Teaser Forum its under Test Forum.

Click on it and you will be told you cant enter.

Its to show a forum exits, but its been set up so you don't have access.

With out the Teaser forum we have to show non registered or registered members the content at the least.

This way they have to register or be in a group.

What is everyone doing on the weekend?

I'm doing some house-cleaning. I got Lasik done recently, and now I can see all the bits I missed! It's making my husband crazy, because I'm having him cleaning ceiling fans, air vents - things I can't reach.

Not an exciting weekend. frown

I'll finally get off work on Saturday, been out since Monday, and update my boards with this current release. This 19k dialup through my cellphone keeps me from doing all the fun stuff that DSL can do.

Well, it's not as good as it sounds. We're somewhat behind the times - we don't have a PS3 or XBox 360. I love the Wii, but there's not too many games out for that yet.

It's lucky both of us like playing video games. It would really suck if it was only one of us.

Liverpool cathedral.

What the picture don't show is after 7pm
its prostitute city around there lol

I took a pupil over there when i was a driving instructor
because they wanted to and i was given the low down about it.
So i insisted as there instructor to drive over there.

At the "Back Side" as they said prostitutes lined up,
i was shocked and laughing my head off.
We just don't know our REAL STREETS.

Noo noo

Today in Florida it will be 94 degrees, with 100% humidity. Up North they stay inside during the winter. Down south we stay inside during the summer. laugh

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 06/18/07 07:45 PM

Information Overload - I think most sites are way down on activity as there are more places now days for people to go for information and general chatting.

We used to have upwards of hundred+ NEW posts plus replies each day and you just couldn't keep up. Now we're lucky to get a couple new posts a day. frown

Once in a while things pick up and we get maybe a dozen a day, but rarely these days.

My site went awfully quiet a while ago ... so much so I started to panic, but I couldn't think why. But within a couple of weeks it was right up there again - I think there are natural cycles.

It's just that I was thinking maybe there is a slow take-up on threads as people may be concerned about the 'change' (maybe some can't change yet as they don't have MySQL?).

I was planning on waiting until threads was 'a few versions in' or a little more mature before making the transition from classic; in the end I was driven to it by hosting issues.

I am so happy I did! laugh

Anyhow, as more people change over - there will be more people joining the new community. After all, most people running classic have nice stable boards, most of the time... wink

Well, just my thoughts on why things are a little slow at the mo' -- feel free to shoot them down - we'll have more posts then laugh

I mean, normally, it must be very rewarding for Rick as we are all reasonably constructive in our feedback. Also threads gets so much qudos for it's quality.

But if it were me, I'd be tearing my hair out at each bug report - trying to make the product perfect.

It's a never ending loop. New version - more stuff, more bugs to iron out.

Same here, and Preview Post is intermittent too. Also I get (I think it's) a 406 error when I use the CP and have to restart IE. I only view this/my forum with Firefox now.

I started viewing the right column when the "Latest Photos" appeared on the left. I suddenly thought, with the forum updates, I might miss something else if it appeares on the right.

That's interesting, when I'm using IE at the office, I get the same problem.

I didn't mention it as I thought it was a local issue. I always often have to ^A^C and then open a new page to ^V my previewed text.
Posted By: Mark S

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 06/18/07 10:10 PM

Its actually an IE and Ajax issue,
so while IE = v7.0 were screwed.

I turned it off on my forums as members think its our server
locking and the software, and don't understand that its IE.

Nothing if you stick with the defaults and don't add any. If you have a forum like mine where people LOVE using a lot of graemlins, the menu is VERY messy and doesn't work well with some browser versions.

I even tried "fixing" it myself, but I'm no developer. It was WAY too difficult for me to figure out. I wanted to make it so that when the graemlins button was clicked, a menu like the "moods" one comes up.

Ideally, the graemlins mod for 6.5 was great. smile

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 06/19/07 12:54 AM

there is a mod over there now, that at least allows for more horizontal space for lotsa graemlins, but i'm assuming you have differing sizes and you'd also like to have full control over ordering and lining them up?

Exactly, SD. A table sort of thing.

I do have that mod, and it helps a little bit, plus a couple of little changes I made myself - but still awfully messy. frown

How does google maps do that?

it says click anywhere where there is blue on a street?
There's loads of blue.

Is there some idiot with a camera doing 4 steps then spinning around?

Amazing stuff that street level stuff.

views not too bad either lol

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 06/20/07 09:29 PM

They are old, Mark. Those women you were looking at this morning were probably "captured by Google" anything from days to months ago. At the time you posted it, it was 7am-ish here in Florida, so it would have been about 4am in California. They were definitely not out there sunbaking then. smile

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 06/20/07 09:40 PM

Rose i know there not "Live" images,
i'm just curious how the hell they do it?

On the map there are streets and streets you can visit
and pan the image around in 360 degree's.

Its mind boggling how its done?
As i cant imagine how they have done it ???

Likewise! I mean, that's NOT a sattelite image is it?
It's clearly taken at street level.

I guess Google throw in a few of these pics and then generate some (what's it called?) (viral?) images - to make it look like they are in control of the planet?

Ooooh - new conspiracy theory! laugh

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 06/20/07 10:34 PM

I just asked my hubby (who knows everything about everything), and he says it's probably satellite images. He says they are very high resolution and can capture images along the "skin" of the earth. Then he said something about "mosaic" which got way too technical for me, and I sorta tuned out. laugh

It's banned in my house and has been for about 5 years now.

Rose, it's a soap on the BBC but it's the most depressing, misserable TV on the planet. Nothing but fighting, shouting, back stabbing, etc, etc, etc. but definately NOT entertaining. Why anyone in their right mind would want to sit down in front of this crud 4 or 5 nights a week is beyond me.

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 06/21/07 11:50 PM

But Googling images still makes you often go to the site to get the image. Thus disable java and java script in Firefox and shouldn't be an issue looking for images without getting whacked.

The site in my sig does not have them. I have them but I don't show anyone. I'll take a look at creating a page to show them.

You would then have to save to your site as I won't enable hot linking for them.

did you see it at all ?

Only when the shuttle landed and i seen on the video feed
the people (Service) walk along side it,
that shuttle is huge.

Must have been the angle, but good to see its wheels on the ground.

Re: Temptation : Is it too great? - 06/22/07 09:10 PM

I've seen it take off from Florida in person at a night launch. Listening to the radio the announcer says about a minute into the flight. "It's now crossing over the Cape of Africa". I'm like, no it's not, it's right there above me. The speed and arc of trajectory is amazing.

I've seen it land once here at Edwards as well. Though as many times as it's landed I've only heard it twice.

LOL - That's okay, I don't like the Politically Correct place the World has become. I think we needed some but as with most good well meaning things it's like a pendulum and goes too far.

Firing people from jobs they've been at for 20+ years because they accidentally made an "off comment" is just too much for me. Everyone goes around acting like they're so high and mighty and never participate in anything like joking about others from one point of view or another. I'd rather it be a bit more like "He who is without sin cast the first stone" but we've gone way too far for things to go back now.

It's quite a popular dish (apparently) - I find the idea disgusting!

Actually, now I think of it, I don't think it uses pasrty - I think it's topped with mash or something......

for note (to everyone) the error is a genaric MySQL error related to the size of the partition where /tmp is located and the temporary file being generated by the mysql server in conjunction with the xml document generation...

ROFL - Well not that any of us were around, but funny to be wished a happy 4th by someone from England.

(4th of July in the US is for celebrating the adoption of the
Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain.)

I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. It's getting late on Friday here on the US West Coast and I don't see Rick online.

He may have left the building (so to speak) and gone off vacationing with the Family for the weekend.

Oh, and I just felt like posting in this thread of epic proportions. Why? Well, because I can, of course.

Its fragrance will consume your every obsession.
This rose must be a gift, a gift from above
A gift from Heaven to show us love.

Every morning I wake to see its petals glisten
Its easy to see how one could be so smitten
If love was a rose it would shine so bright
Because all I need is this rose in my life.

Mark honey .. your poem was really sweet, but VERY scary. I was so glad to see your spoiler. But thanks for the thought. You're a nice guy.

Ok, so you guys have shamed me. When even Rick manages to come up with a poem ... jeez! I have to come up with something now. Warning though - it will be more like one of Rick's. laugh

Aww .. I sure did miss you guys. smile

Ok, here goes ...

Rick comes first
He's the boss, you see
He brings us together
With UBB

Gizmo is the man
His numbers top the chart
He likes to act all grumpy
But he has a good heart

Mark is the flirty one
And that's just the way he is
He's always so willing to help
Just like his main hero, Giz

Ian goes away a lot
We don't really know where
But we're glad when he's back
And we see his big bear

driv, ntdoc, sirdude
ScriptKeeper and the rest
We're all what makes "Temptation"
The absolute best!
