Many thanks to all -- 1,000 posts in two months

Howdy from Texas,

Today (November 6th 2001) marks the two-month point since these message boards went public... altogether we've had 1,000 posts since then, from 270 members.

That works out to more than 15 posts per day on average. While this is nothing compared to some other forums I'm on (over at Canopus, they have more than 5,000 members and upwards of 55,000 posts), but hey, it's a start! A good start.

Many thanks and much respect to everyone who's joined and participated since Sept. 5th when this thing finally got started for real.

For anyone who's interested, here's how your user titles break down. These appear on the boards when you post, just below your user name.

less than 5 posts: Tourist
less than 20 posts: New Boot
less than 50 posts: Regular Crew
less than 90 posts: Major Player
more than 90 posts: Trustee

has an article on the XL1 Watchdog or elsewhere on DVinfoNet: Contributor

chips in resources to insure success: Sponsor

happens to be Jeff Kramer, the community's server wizard: Warden (hope it's not too warm in the engine room, Jeff)

Thanks again everybody! Looking forward to the next 60 days,

Let me thank you in return for the support,

Having just gotten my Canon GL1 and a few accessories I am looking forward to learning what this thing is capable of doing in my clumsy, untrained hands... and it looks like I can certainly get the real scoop on things by lurking on some of you pros posts here.

I hope I can avoid asking the REALLY dumb questions.

Thanks for the forum!

Ed

The only dumb question is the one that doesn't get asked! So post away.

So I'll go ahead and ask (the only dumb question is the unasked) Chris does your signature imply that you are burning CD's of the band Midnight oil?
:-)

I just want to add that I have never seen a camera generate so much attention, interest and enthusiasm as the XL1...I have rarely seen any mass-produced piece of machinery attract such a rabid following. OK, Corvettes and Harleys. But I'll bet there aren't too many people whose whole careers have been changed by a car or a bike.

cheers
mike

Burning Midnight Oil, meaning playing their music all the time. Got store-bought CD's for the house and the cars. Haven't burned many CD's yet, but thinking about some compilations. Thanks for asking!

Now your challenge is to figure out the Black Gang Coffee reference... have fun,

;-)

COOL!

Interesting how, like myself, Watt is a "Son of a Sailor"...I remember reading my dad's "Blue Jacket Manual" when I was a boy, so I actually knew just what a barkentine was before Buffett wrote "The Captain and the Kid"...weird, huh?

Amazing how much nautical jargon Watt packs into his songs, which a longtime powerboater like me understands. I have spent many hours "contemplating the engine room" and have had to untangle lobster pot lines that were "wrapped around the screw" and so forth. I have to take time listen to this guy...mostly I just hang with the commercial stuff (Aerosmith, LL Cool J, Dixie Chicks etc.) or some Coltrane or Miles...once in a while something off the wall like John Prine or Kinky Friedman.

I've always liked Watt, and Minutemen... "Engine Room" is a truly amazing piece of work considering how the whole thing is Watt's life in an opera, wrapped up in a compact seafaring analogy. The guy's whole lifestory is in that album; his dad, Minutemen, D. Boon etc. I had the highly satisfying privilege of seeing "Engine Room" performed live in Austin, and I shot Watt's most recent performance there last October (and will get him again this Spring). Watt is the most likeable guy you could meet, always friendly with a kind word to say about everybody and everything. He got me to read Richard McKenna's "Sand Pebbles," his inspiration for "Engine Room," and of course that book just totally blew me away, so much better than the movie which itself has always been one of my favorites. Thanks,

OK Chris, has the title system just been changed? I mean, I am not worried about being a "major player" --I know you still "trust" me....<grin>

Just confused...which means this is a normal day.

cheers

It has... but now you have a custom title hopefully befitting of your Watt-fueled nautical travels.
