Farewell to All (Except for Vegas, of course!)

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

For me, I think it is time to say farewell...it has been a wild 2 1/2 years reading and posting on this message board. After the rollover, I still felt the desire to summarize my experiences, so with the help of several other industry insiders, the "Y2k Retrospectives" series was completed.

The two boards I've ever followed closely (this one and some boards that discuss the JonBenet Ramsey murder investigation) have both pretty much run their course, so I'm off to search for other subject-specific boards.

I do plan to be in Vegas in October. Actually, I'll be there next week for the Globex 2000 conference (www.globeex2000.com).

Take care, everyone.

I hate to see you leave, but with the maturity leval of some posting here lately, I cannot blame you.

Dan, sure hate to see you go. Where do we find a certified source of valid info as regards the power industry? Unlike the JonBenet Ramsey tragedy (the Mother is guilty as hell), we still have many of lifes mysterys to solve on this forum. Enjoy your travels and visit occasionally.

Hey, Dan -- make sure you're wearing that "gas mask" thing; how else will we recognize ya?!?! :-)

Thanks for the "insider retrospective" series; very informative, and very well-done.

You have always posted with intelligence and insight. You will be sorely missed. Best of luck in finding the subject specific boards which will satisfy your particular search for knowledge and companionship.

Dan, I tried to post in this thread last night, but unfortunately the Greenspum server disk space prevent me from doing so, as it did others.

But tonight its fixed, so allow me to thank you for your contributions to factual information concerning y2k in the power industry. Your matter of fact style and supurb online manners were much appreciated by many of us here at TB2000 and also at the old EUY2K board. Thanks, and hope to run into you again somewhere ...

Dan, when I first read this, I thought you were taking the forum with you. Though I can't remember reading many of your posts (unless you posted under a different name) I do remember that cute photo. It was like...the unkown electrician. Take care ... Cin

Cherri, Future Shock, Cin...thanks for your kind words.

Ration1, in the digital age, you should get good info straight from your power company's web site, or NERC. Just a note on NERC, they are going to have regulatory-type powers over utilities regarding electric reliability, kind of like the NRC is over the nukes. So you may see more information coming from them soon. If you want a specific interpretation on something, send me an e-mail and I'll try to point you in the right direction.

And yes, I'll visit from time to time....

Factfinder, thanks for the kind words, and thanks again for helping with the insider series.

Check in here every so often. You never know what you'll find!

I would like to thank you for the EE (Electrical Education), both before and after Y2K. I've said many times that you, and FactFinder, were part of the reason that I never was a 10, at least on the power side of things...

I'ld also like to thank you for allowing me to start that "fight" between yourself and Mr. Cook. It did turn out to be very informative, and that's all I was looking for. I'm sorry that Mr. Cowles didn't show up to help the doomer side (grin), but I did try to get him...

Dan, you are one polly that it has been a true pleasure to know.

Best of luck to you. <:)=
