Post Big announcement!

Attention all members. Excuse me while I drag over this dilapidated, beer-stained soapbox for a moment. I have an announcement to make.

For the last 3 years I have been privileged to be the man to coordinate the opening of new DDC threads and to officially welcome new members to the club. I still find it hard to believe that I have been performing these tasks for so long... through 19 threads! Flew by, actually. It's been a great honor!

Over the past few months I have found less and less time and energy to spend keeping up with the boards. I found myself wondering if there is someone else that could be enlisted to help or take over the responsibilities I have enjoyed thus far. This leads me to the announcement. I hope you will all agree with me that this person will more than adequately take these tasks and make it more than I could imagine Commencing with the end of the current thread, the man who will henceforth announce the reception of new members and create new threads is....

Cinderella's Fella (Randall)

I will continue to add new members through the end of this thread... but please start referring new members to Randall once the new thread opens. It's been a pleasure fellas!! Oh... and no, I'm not going anywhere! Just need to take a load off for a little bit.

Here's the soapbox, Randall.

Excellent choice. I'm kind of partial to the Droids, myself. Just download Tango. I believe somebody says he has it and it does the same thing as Facetime.

I like ForumRunner. That's actually the only way I ever check that forum. The only downside is that you can't see sigs and you loose the smilies.

I watched the first 2. It's entertaining (if a little silly) so far. I'll stick with it for now and see where it goes.

Feeling a little tired today at work after being up until about 1:30 2 nights in a row to watch the Reds. Well worth it though. I can't wait until tomorrow afternoon when I'll be heading into Great American Ballpark for Game 3!
Someone had an awful good sports weekend.

We've been looking into these a bit lately (mostly my wife is tired of not being able to reach me). It's hard to bite the bullet on the data plan expense, though. The Virgin Mobile pay-as-you-go plan looked intriguing to me. Not sure about their coverage, though. Or their phones.

Thanks for taking care of the club, Don! You've been an unsung hero around here. We couldn't have done so well without you! And I can totally understand about needing a break.

I for one would like to welcome our new overlord, Randall!

Awesome cabin...

As for FaceTime with DAVE, you can always try to download TANGO...

I'll have to look into that. I notices the DIS has their own forum app... but for some reason I keep getting some annoying add that takes over the screen every few seconds. THAT's not going to work for me.

Very welcome to all you guys.
Don't forget to thank Aaron for all he does over at the "other" place.... he puts a lot more elbow grease into that place in one week than I have in this forum for 3 years!

Well... the data package was holding me back, too. I founf out that we were paying for more minutes than we needed to be paying for... so I dropped minutes from the plan which freed up $15. So in our mind the data package is only $15 more a month now Worked on DW anyway
