Okay, back at it....
Good luck! Hope it works out for the best, whichever way that might be!

Don’t know why I’m complaining, no one here has received so much as a cost of living adjustment since 2007.

Gotta validate the ticket before using the fastpasses. This is one reason I am intrigued by the fastpass plus thing. Have fun regardless!

Well that just sucks...I hate this workplace trend, to get people to do more jobs rather then hire someone else. It'd be nice at least for you to get a raise...

Hey guys! Aaron posted this up on FB... and thought I'd pass it along here. Southwest is having a 40% off sale today for dates in the DDC Convention timeframe. I just saved over $200 by booking today!

BIGDEAL40

Hope this helps someone else too!!

Tonight I leave for a conference for a couple of days in my hometown. I wonder if I can avoid the family ]
Congrats on win and stay at home day.

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....

Thanks Don for all the work. Good luck Randall.

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 use Tango when I am out of town with family and really like it.

Well, it's Tuesday morning and I'm still trying to recover from the weekend. And no, Andy, the Packers blowing a 21-3 lead wasn't the worst part. (But it was a nice little salt in the wound)

I had planned to take the van into the shop on Saturday morning because it was leaking coolant from a place that I didn't want to try to have to reach to fix by myself. Turns out that problem was a small hole in the radiator. The bigger problem was badly corroded coolant lines that supply heat to the back of the passenger compartment. The shop told me that Mazda issued a recall on this for states that put salt on the roads in the winter (Hello Wisconsin!). We bought it used, and I'm sure Mazda sent a post card to the original owner who promptly threw it away. The kicker is that, that recall expired in 2010 and we were on the hook for $900 for some dealer-only parts to get it fixed. Has anyone ever heard of recalls expiring?

The bigger issue was when we woke up on Saturday the house was cold, and the furnace was blowing cold air. I couldn't get it running, so I called a service guy. We knew when we bought this house 10 years ago that we were on borrowed time with that furnace, and it chose this weekend to kick the bucket. $3200 for a new one.

Then, to top it all off, our mainframe system at work decided to freak out Sunday night and lose connection to half of it's disks. So I had to deal with all of that mess Sunday evening and all day yesterday.

I could really use a Dole Whip about now.

Bright Side - I was able to use that 40% at Southwest to book some sweet airfare for the DDC!

That bites! I have never heard of a recall expiring, I would contact Mazda itself and complain. Sometimes this helps get back some of the cost if not all. Are there no after-market parts they can use? I just had a Chrysler dealer tell me that I needed about $2000 in parts and labour on my truck. had a friend get me the parts and a private mechanic do the work and it cost me less than $500.
