calling this Scot's Newsletter Forum is like saying dialing a phone number
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

10 years of online public service by an Internet Forum is. . .
  • A near-unheard of accomplishment that very, very few forums can say as of today or will ever be able to say that they have achieved. My conservative estimate is that 0.000001% of currently active Internet Forums are 10 years old or greater.
  • An achievement that Scot's Newsletter Forums and all associated with it should be very, very proud of.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SNF!!!!!!!!!!
JcGriff2 hit the nail on the head  (by the way, great to see you again JcGriff2 who started me on my journey of learning BSOD analysis :)  )  A small percentage of online forums have achieved what Scot's forum has achieved.  Some may ask, what is so special about this forum.  I have been a member since September of 2010 and have not been here NEAR as long as most but I have been here long enough to KNOW I can answer this question.  It's the people.  Obviously in all aspects of this Forum from Windows, to Linux, to MAC a foundation of treating that person who needed assistance with a level of respect and providing in an amazing way the ability for that person to not only get their problem resolved but to LEARN from the issue is the foundation that will keep Scot's going for another 10 years.
I am proud and humbled to be part of this community and I am proud and humbled to call many of you FRIENDS!!!!!!

Keep doing what you are doing.  It no doubt is working.  ;)

All the best,

Ian
