Nice milestone marker Crystal. Impressive! Congratulations.

As Napolean Dynamite would say: "I like your your post count, it's real big!"

shout.gif yAY!

Crystal's energy, immense technical know-how, contributory acumen and social savoir faire to bring together & introduce several different community members is both inspiring and beneficial to any open mind that encounters her. She is unrivaled in the above mentioned aspects and one of UtterAccess's greatest assets. The world-wide Access community in general is the benefactor of her existence. We are graced to greater degrees with her interactive participation. Thank you Crystal.

Congratulations Crystal wine.gif

What can I say about Crystal that hasn't already been said except you've come a long way girl and don't stop for anything.

thanks.gif for all the support you give to everyone here on UA and every other venue you participate in, which in itself is a great achievement.

Congratulations Crystal on your 20K posts,

I can only echo what has already been said here especially, as David states, that it's always great to find your warm and personal touch.
You were one of the first people to answer my earliest posts and, for me, 'set the tone' for this incredible site, so I stayed ....

Thanks Crystal, for the help you have given me and for the many others you have helped.

Way to go woohoo.gif

Warm regards

Bob -- thank you, it is nice to be around kind-hearted folks like yourself who give their time to UA

Daniel -- I truly hope I have the honor of meeting you someday. Thanks for your kindness and sharing your knowledge. It is good to see you <

Bruce -- thank you, I have benefitted from code you have posted such as positioning forms. I remember the personal thank you note you sent sortly after you joined UA, that was nice. We are glad you are here.

Ron -- your comment touched my heart and made me smile, thank you

Mark -- I'm speechless, especially after figuring all those big words out < I aspire to someday be able to put a fraction of the creativity into my applications that you put into yours. I hope there will be some time for you to show me some of the things you are working on notworthy.gif

Glen -- thank you, and also for all you have done to help UtterAccess in the early years and to become what it is today

Milt -- thank you for the kind words. I see you live in my favorite state for collecting quartz < ... I'll be back someday with my rock hammer and a wheelbarrow ...

DougY -- thank you, and for all you do behind the curtain. I look forward to seeing you soon

Brian -- Bet you didn't realize when you joined UA that it was us getting the Christmas present ... you have come a long way in your knowledge, thank you for the help you give to others

John -- thank you ... have any arugula? I hope we can talk more about our rootbound friends sometime < I enjoy your wit and learning from your posts

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wish I could jump through my monitor and hug you all! I am thankful for a great place like UtterAccess. I want to give my thanks to those who enable a great place like this exist.

My biggest thanks go to Gord Hubbell, who started UtterAccess when Simon Wolf's "A3" forum needed a place to go. It was a lot smaller back then. Gord wrote the forum code himself in PHP. There was nothing faster! As UA grew, Gord incorporated good ideas that members contributed. UA kept getting bigger and better.

Then Microsoft asked Gord to host a wiki on UA. Gord changed the forum software to accommodate the UtterAccess Wiki, which needs your contributions. Make a goal to submit or add to one wiki article before summer starts! you can do it! no matter what your skill level. Jack, Banana, Mark, Brent, Ace, Alan, Glenn, Cynthia, Walter, theDBguy, and others have done an incredible amount of work to customize how the wiki works and organize the content.
If all of you would share one thing you are good at, the wiki will blossom into an even greater warehouse of information.

http://www.UtterAccess.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

Thanks to the moderating team, Alan, Glenn, BananaRepublic, Cynthia, Mark, Brent, DougY, Gord, Glen, George, Jack, Jerry, John, Ken, Martin, Larry, Leigh, Lynn, Walter, Noah, Ricky, theDBguy, Truitt, Van, and James

thanks to the VIPs such as Boyd, Lou, Oli, Scott, Boyd, Doug, Danny, John, William, Harry, Ken, Graham, Jay, Bernie, Luc, Mike, Doug, Bob, Tim, John, Matt, Peter, Ben, Aqua, Brian, Paul, Anthony, Tina, Jimbo, Jeff, Daniel, Craig, Dave, Dane, Adam, Chris, Steve, Garry, Des, Rob, Albert, Dan, Jeff, Coop, Woody, our theatrical "Dr" Dennis, and many more ...


... and thanks to you!


it is comforting to come to a place where kindness prevails

Pat -- It is so nice to see you here! Thanks for all the time you have put into figuring out SQL Azure and sharing it with us on your AccessTips blog! We hope you will make UA a regular stop ... check out some of the cloudy forums like Access Services, SharePoint, and SQL Server. Your expertise would be much appreciated!

Ok, now 20,000 posts?

Is there a decimal point out of place here?

Golly, I don't know how she does it!

There not a lot of words needed to be said here.

Crystals contributions to the Access community are well know wide and far beyond the walls of UA.

I would be hard pressed to think of ANY part of the world wide Access community who is not aware of Crystal's work and contributions.

In term of Access, she's been (and is) everywhere!

Can we have this song changed to

Crystal's been Access everywhere?

You have without a doubt touched far more people than your 20,000 amazing posts here show!

Congrads…

I wish I could sit hear and type out a description of the my thoughts and feelings I hold dear in regard to you my dearest Crystal. I continue to value the relationship we have built over the years. I get true enjoyment over how we can talk tech, or otherwise, have common thoughts thumbup.gif --- and differences of opinion dazed.gif --- with each of us knowing that we're still there holding each other in high regard --- despite our quirks and deficientcies.

That seems to be the way you have build many relationships --- enduring, honest, and accepting (regardless of the venue!). You are a valued person Crystal, congratulations on this milestone, and thanks for being the person that you are! thumbup.gif

Hiya Jack!!!!!! thanks for stopping in. Hey don't leave just yet ... you have social skills to teach us geeky types. We miss your light-hearted and funny comments! I learned so much from you -- way more than you ever learned from me about Access. We all love you, Jack! love.gif

Aw, shucks, Crystal blush.gif. You are far too kind, but thank you for your warm response!

I think I have forgotten everything I ever learned about Access, but with time permitting I may occasionally darken UA's doorway...if only to remind myself about what a wonderful time I have had here.

YEA CRYSTAL!!

Albert -- thank you. It is coincidental that you bring up a song by an artist of that era and genre -- I spent the better part of yesterday looping Glen Campbell - Ghost On The Canvas My son added a script for YouTube so I can loop videos and all kinds of other things. He just re-did my website ... a couple people have emailed me to let me know my code documenter link is broken ... nice to know people are looking! it is fixed now. My son also did the menu system for Tony's Auto Front End Updater (which is pretty slick!) -- and it is up! anyway, I digress. You are the single biggest influence in all I have learned about Access web databases, thank you Albert notworthy.gif I look forward to a live meeting broadcast ... have to settle for that for now since I won't be seeing you soon

Brent -- my dear intellectual friend for life with many children and wonderful wife, I love you all!! I gotta see your children while they are still kids. I loved your Christmas picture, they are so much taller! ... well except for Malachi. I remember Caleia with her sparkly shoes! Now she is probably using those little feet to get into everything! Thank you for your heart-warming words. You are so smart and I have learned a lot from you, thank you, Brent notworthy.gif

Jack -- thank you my great friend! notworthy.gif you are always there and I think the world of you. Seriously, even though you are not doing much with Access, how about the chat forum? You have a ton of adoring fans and everyone misses you. The new people that don't know you don't even know what they missed! You are one of a kind. When people come here and ask questions, they are often frustrated. You do soooo much to make that go away! ... then the rest of us can teach < Well I could go on and on. It is great to see you here, Jack!
