Cool The “anniversary” thread

Wouldn’t this be a nice place to celebrate some specials?
1K posts, 1-year member, 50 years of marriage, 10th baby, 20th amplifier, 10th speaker blown…?

Soon we will bake a cake for Roddyama's 1K post.

I think that it would be best to congratulate Peter for his 5000th post, 5x enlightened now, I suppose. He had exactly 5000 posts when I checked a second ago.

Damn, that is a lot of posts!

This is indeed a whole lot.
You came just in time to tell us.
By the time I write this, he'll probably have a few more

Congrats Peter!!!

Not meaning to complain or anything, but I've always been a
bit puzzled about these congratulations for 1000th post etc.
Personally I rather find it a bit embarassing when I find my
posting ratio have been quite high for more than, say a few
days. It probably just means my S/N ratio has been bad.
Now, don't let this personal opinion take the joy out it for
those who do want their 1000th post etc. celebrated.

As for 10th speaker blown, I have to blow 9 more, but that
should not need to take very long if I wanted to go for it.

I know what you mean...
Of course S/N should be high and I think you can’t complain about yours. This thread is actually nothing more than one of my personal attempts to tighten the community.

I am not so sure about that myself (referring to the second
part of the sentence), but thanks for the nice words in this
respect.

Don't worry, I understand this. This thread just seemed an
appropriate one to post this reflection I've had for very long.

I have said it before and I say it again. I wish we had a hundred
more Hugos on the forum. You do a wonderful job of trying
to be nice to everybody, cheering people up and, of course,
helping them with finding equivalent transistors, for instance.

BTW, I love those small comments you usually make in you posts,
like "Hugo, gone shopping", "Hugo, searching the databooks".
It gives a warm personal touch to your posts.
