Celebration 12/06 -- Happy Anniversary: Us (MacResource Forum)!!!
Date: December 06, 2016 02:04AM
Let's all wish ourselves a Happy Anniversary for 11 years of forum activity. A big thank you to our sponsor! OWC rules! Buy their stuff!!





Thanks and Happy Anniversary for those who participate and make this community what it really is -- sometimes it really does take a village... Thanks to all the forum admins and everyone else who keeps this running. With some of the people here, I'm sure it's not an easy task...

A big shout-out to all the previous fairies, I couldn't have done this job without you (because you would still be doing it).

And I waited until after midnight PST to make sure I was the first to post this! Nobody's stealing my thunder this year!

Only 11 years?

I'd've sworn it was a lot more than 11 years ago the great migration took place.

Thank you Larry for supporting this place, keep it going.

Wow that is cool! I can't believe it's been 11 years! Then again, I can't believe the other place went back nearly as far for me. Love this community. Thank you Larry & Co for keeping the spirit alive and making it even better over here. This is a great forum with lots of people I consider friends even though we've never met face to face. One can come here and ask advice on just about anything. And there are always more than a few interesting threads to peruse on any given day, and learn more about each other, ourselves, and our world.

Viva MacResource. That is all.

I can clearly remember (which is something to say at my age) how angry I was at Brian and how lost I felt at the "demise" of Dealmac. I had found so many great people there and all of a sudden, it was gone.

And then, the miracle! MRF was born and the people that I thought I had lost started showing up for the birth of this wonderful forum.

So thanks to our OWC Larry and his team and thanks to all of you, my friends, for making this meeting place the vibrant, helpful and happy (stop me, I'm going to cry)...

...you know what I'm trying to say, so who brought the booze?

Congratulations to us all!

So, I'm eleven, not seventy-nine???

This may be silly, but I feel like there ought to be a MacResource Forum Appreciation Day where we could toss a few pennies into the hat just for the upkeep of these forums.

I mean, to me, it's my first go-to spot for all sorts of odd advice, and that's worth something to me.

SteveO, you hit it right on the head. You said just about everything I wanted to, but you beat me to it.

This is a fun place, hope we all stick around for a long time.

Celebration? Hmph. I don't think so.

A REAL celebration would have Larry give us old-timers new Macs of our choice!

At the very least, have some GREAT Hookers& Booze available!

All we got was a measly cake. eye twitch smiley

But they are all high quality posts! Some of us post because we have nothing better to do on a cold winter day.
