Hi Don!
Hi Pano!
Hi Jeff!

* Cal, you can be my friend anytime.

As for earthquake, not before Frankenstorm in New York.

And by the way, no one answered any of my previous questions; what a nice bunch!

One of the things you get more of when you become a donor. You can turn it off as well.

8. Planet10, yes, I am very much into Illuminati. Dave, you're in my town.
Are you sure it is not my town? I'm happy to share. Jeff & Chris & more are local. We may even know each other. I was at Sound Hounds for 5 years.

Watch out for FNORDS

9. Ryan, you are my neighbor.
He just moved from Victoria

Ah, now that I see it on the map, it isn't as close as I thought. Glad it missed you!

Dave, I recall a Dave who used to work at Sound Hounds!
And I believe that once he sold me a Rotel CD player, and another time he terminated a pair of interconnects for me (soldered the RCA connectors; like a pro).

And thank you for answering all my questions.

* I am tres familiar with the User CP. ...But there was no 'Signature Editing' there.
** A [Visitor Messages] box is a place under your profile when each time one member go there he/she can leave a message (post a note). ...Do you go out sometimes?
*** Ya, I know exactly where it says how many posts each member has; I was just reiterating it.
**** Five posts, yup, got that now.
***** No sweat, I know the score regarding PMs, thanx for reminding me.
****** What is FNORDS?

One day at a time. I'll go real slow but surely so, just as tomorrow go...
I'm happy to be here among some friends who live in 'my' town.

And by the way, did I say that I was French? ...I believe so. And I also always type with only one finger, very true. ...And a treeplanter, I was.

Bests to you all,
Bob
