Welcome to the Forum DV Info

(with apologies to Felder, Frey and Henley)

Information Superhighway, I just sit and stare
Warm smell of fresh coffee, clicking links here and there

Upon the first page at Google, I could learn HD tonight
My wrist grew weary and my mouse stopped then
I had to check out this site

There it was in the browser; I found the message board
And as I read the FAQ it said 'There will be no flaming or platform wars'

They've got some volunteer mods who run this place
Keep the peace ejecting all the clowns, they do it for no pay...

Welcome to the Forum DV Info
Such a busy place, such a dizzy pace

Plenty of threads at the Forum DV Info
Any type of gear, you can find it here

Widescreen and switchable frame rates, an interchangeable lens
It's got a lot of menu choices, all those latest trends
How they post in the forum, buyer's regret.
Some post that they're happy, some post they're upset.

So I emailed Pete Bauer, 'Please take me offline'
He said, 'The internet has been around since 1969'

And still those Aussies keep joining from far away,
Stay up late to all hours of the night just to say Good Day...

Welcome to the Forum DV Info
It's in cyberspace, wear your happy face

They're chatting it up at the Forum DV Info
Learning from the wise, and how to improvise

Real names in the listings, the sponsors got your price,
Hurd said, 'We have a search tool here, and please be more concise'

Discuss homemade adapters, those big plans never cease
They spin a CD for their relay mirror, but they just can't build the piece

Last thing I remember, I was reading page forty-four
I had to use the breadcrumb nav to find the thread I read before

'Refresh,' said Jeff Kramer, 'Server load times will decrease'
You can log out any chance you get, but you can never leave...

Wow, Chris! I'll never listen to Hotel California the same way again. That was awesome on so many different levels.

Thank you all for introducing yourselves and helping me see that my addiction to DVinfo is merely a pale shadow compared to the level of obsession that some have attained. Which of course means I need to spend a LOT more time on the forums!

I'm with Pete; I don't have a problem, I can quit any time I want to. I just don't want to.

I've managed to keep my post count relatively low over the years, but I make up for it with time spent lurking. DVi's not my homepage, but I swear I'm wandering around the forums every minute or so, whenever I need a distraction from something more important I should be doing.

I wonder if the server's got stats on the total time each of us has spent logged in...

After reading chris' piece, I might have to compsoe some music for it!!!


At least I did not lose my job over it, wait a minute, I don't have a real job!!


This is the only computer site I actually attend with any consistancy.

Great place to be if your not out shooting.

Also good if you are waiting on a render!!!

Great lyrics! Except I get that darn tune stuck in my head every time I happen to see this thread. We won't talk about how often that is...
