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

    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! :thumbsup2

    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....

    :goofy: Cinderella's Fella (Randall) :goofy:

    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. :surfweb:

    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.

    Thanks for all of your contributions, Don. You've earned a long vacation. And Randall is a great choice for the new "Don".

    Well...that sucks. Hope you got this taken care of without too much of a hit on the wallet.

    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.

    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. :confused3

    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!

    Most welcome!

    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. :lmao:

    Very welcome to all you guys. :thumbsup2
    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! :worship::worship::worship:


    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 :lmao: Worked on DW anyway :rolleyes1

    ::yes:: Except for the Purdue game, but disappointment is pretty much the highest expectation you can have there. :rolleyes2

    Before Barry can even bring it up, Wisconsin comes to town next week, so just go ahead and put Ball back into the Heisman talk.

    I know exactly what you mean. I never had a smartphone up until about a year ago just because that data plan every month was just too salty. I have to admit that I'm glad we finally broke down and upgraded though. With all the apps and everything else at your fingertips, it is great to have it right there whenever you're looking for something to do to kill a couple of minutes.

    There are a lot of practical reasons that they're good too. :rotfl2::rotfl:

    :thumbsup2 Sweet ride.

    Have fun!

    Thanks for the shoutout Don. The other place would never exist without your stewardship around here. I'm sure Statler, er um Waldorf, um yeah, I mean Randall will do a fine job staying on top of things over on this side. :thumbsup2 <---thumb
