Happy Anniversary to Me

Wow, I just realized that I have been registered and somewhat active on DVi for 10 years now. Holy moly, where did the time go.
Thanks again to Chris Hurd for giving me a place to go even though I have to make my own coffee ;-)
I'm looking forward to a whole bunch more years here although I might not be as active after this year sine retirement is in my cards but then again who can tell the future.
To all of you thanks for some lively discussions and some great information and in general a good time.
I hope I've been able to give at least as much as I've gotten.

Re: Happy Anniversary to Me

Congrats on the 10th year anniversary! When you joined what was the hot equipment being talked about?

Re: Happy Anniversary to Me

Hmmm I have to think a bit. Let's see, the PD150, Canon XL1, GL1, Sony VX2000 then soon after came the PD170, VX2100, GL2 and XL2. DVD production was gearing up, Sony Vegas 3 IIRC. Honestly, I can't remember all the hot topics. Those were the days!

Congrats Don and thanks for your contributions. I've only been around for a few years but have learned a lot from your posts. Enjoy your retirement!

Congrats Don! I think you need to make an acceptance speech video of yourself and post it for us all to see. :-)

Re: Happy Anniversary to Me

Shaun, we must be greybeards and it's not 50 shades either. ;-) Congrats to you as well. I know of marriages that haven't lasted this long.

Bill, I'm trying to forget all about those days. Man those things weighted as much as I did back then.

Chris, if this weren't a great place to hang, I wouldn't of stayed but you've made DVi a fun, exciting, friendly knowledge base and where else can you go to make friends not only around the country but from around the world. So a big THANK YOU for having the vision and guts to put yourself out there and make DVi what it has become today!

BTW there will be NO videos or books forthcoming!

Re: Happy Anniversary to Me

Don: there is more grey in the beard this year than there was this time last, that's for sure... and WAY more than 10 years ago! Although I won't blame Chris for that...

Re: Happy Anniversary to Me

Mark, I do my best edit work really early AM so I have a lot of daylight in the afternoon to play and there have been GASP....DAYS I haven't posted. ;-)

Shaun, yes a lot more grey in both the beard and hair although for me, I have a lot less hair now than 10 years ago. :-(

HEY, I'm not retiring yet! 2014 and then not 100% but I WILL NOT be doing any "social events" for sure. I'm starting to get more and more web-a-mericals, promos and training type video work again. Thank goodness. I don't mind doing that stuff and in fact really enjoy it, plus I'm getting more trade show stuff with MoS and talking heads interviews so while others are setting up the "studio upstairs" I'll be running around the trade show floor with talent to do the fun stuff. I didn't mind setting up the studio but the strike is a killer for me. Oh well, part of the job.
anyway, I just fiesty enough to hang around for another 10 years!
