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 for all the work you put in creating threads and keeping track of new members Don. Enjoy the respite.

Randall your an awesome choice to take over.

Glad to hear the party was fun. So do we call that that the Avenger-ail? that sounds like a beer to me.

Going to be an interesting few days… my immediate manager resigned and we now have about ten or fewer days to transfer all that knowledge and processing responsibilities on to two or there other people (being as they don’t plan to bring in any one else to fill the spot). This will be the fifth time I’ve had to take on more work and almost certainly mark the fifth time that extra responsibility and requirement came with no extra compensation.


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

Additional responsibility without additional compensation sinks. (that reminds me of a revolutionary war slogan)

It's already been said, but the tickets have to be swiped at the gate to work in the fastpass machine. I learned that the hardway

BIGDEAL40

Hope this helps someone else too!!
Bummer I already booked my tickets for those dates and I don't think they are refundable.

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.

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!
Wow that's a bummer I hadn't heard of recalls expiring.

No NFC Norse banter for this week.

Forget the real parts and just get more rubber hose. That's been doing the job for the past few years anyway. Truthfully though, I can't understand how a recall can expire. There has to be some way to get it taken care of.

Sorry about the furnace too. We have one that is 28 years old. It's a beast, but I know one of these days it is going to give up the fight. Even if you know it is coming, that's not something that tends to be budget friendly

I could say the same thing. My weekends have been crazy with work, fall chores, and playing dad, while also trying to sneak a nap in so I'm not a zombie while I'm working.

Wow. Quite the weekend! And I have never heard of a recall expiring either. Might be work a call to the manufacturer somehow.

Actually... you can rebook at the discounted price and they will give you the difference as a credit towards future flights. Did that last year.
