Celebration is good, but perhaps you should look back and tell us which post you're the most proud of.

Your next milestone is to get onto page #1 of the members list - currently you need 1338. Staying there though, is tough !

I never looked before, but I am on page 1!!!  Krypton, I am waiting for the giveaway also :-+  Hopefully, I can stay there long enough to win the giveaway when it happens.  (won't be holding my breath on that one)

Could Deathwish be the record holder for fastest to 1000? He joined in April last year and hit his thousandth post in September - that's even faster than Dave.

He hasn't visited the forum since January 11th, though - hope he's all right.

I think some other members that have joined since then might take his record.

I fear we have lost Garry, I've tried to contact him, even via the Mods but as we know his health was not good.
He will be missed.  :(

Nope, just sticking your tongue out at the proper angle.

Oh no!

dexters_lab says he posted Deathwish a package, that implies he has Garry's full name and address.  :-\
Maybe he'll share it with us via PM  :popcorn:

Celebration is good, but perhaps you should look back and tell us which post you're the most proud of.

rather see the one he's least proud of  >:D

Most proud ->  answered my first (and so far only) electronic question.  I looked something up in a datasheet and found an answer for someone  :)

The second most proud is I got a subject (not mine) to be a sticky  :) 

https://www.eevblog.com/forum/beginners/from-no-parts-to-decent-stockpile-best-approach/?topicseen

The least ->  don't remember the post but the response was someone asked me if I could write English.  I forgot who and why they were insulting me.  :-/O

So see, a dumb ass can make it to 1,000   :-+

1000 posts gets you access to the supporters lounge. Or it did for me a few years ago.
