Leigh, I tend to read your posts even when the topic is not of specific interest to me at the moment. It's amazing how many useful things I have learned by doing that. Congratulations on the milestone, and thank you for sharing your skill and experience!

Hey Glenn (and everyone).

Many thanks indeed for all this. (And so close to my birthday too - if I'd thought I should have coincided them! :-)

Despite not making quite as many posts as back in the day (that would be impossible to keep doing... oh, hi there DBguy ;-), I still couldn't be doing without this.
Yes, forum participation gives a lot back too - but UA makes it even better.
I'll be happily hanging around for as long as you'll have me and my occasionally inventive word plays (read awful puns).

The drinks are on me!! (For everyone who can make it to my local village pub next weekend.)

Congratulations on the milestone Leigh, I always love reading your monologues (ooops, sorry posts), bad puns as well LOL. Looking forward to the pints lined up on the bar in your village pub next weekend - I'm not proud, John Smiths, Tetleys, Worthy's, Theakstons - they're all good cheers.gif cheers.gif

Congratulations - 15K is a long haul.

I'm a math trivia fiend. So assuming one pint per post, that's the equivalent of 59.5 barrels. That should keep your local pub going for a while.

I wish it were as easy to figure out how 15,000 posts translates into people helped hours of work saved, etc. A lot, I guess.

I, for one, appreciate your ability to dig below the surface of so many technical questions and provide not just "an answer", but a great deal more. More than once, you've picked me up this way and I'm always grateful.

So, thanks.

Hi Leigh,

Congrats - Thanks for all the help.

I also enjoy your sense of humour

Hey Joe.

(Sorry - but who can resist that?? At least I didn't ask where you were going with that pun in your hand. doh.gif

Got to be the best I've read for a loooong time.

Sterling work, Leigh! Congrats on achieving yet another milestone.

These days, I notice more when you're not around on UA for a few days, so I'm always willing to forgive a pun or two to see you back on the boards!

Thanks for sharing all your deep insight, and all in clear, detailed and concise (OK, I'm joking about the last one wink.gif ) posts. I look forward to many more.

Awesome accomplishment dude, or should I say BigGun #1 ... smile.gif

... I thought I would be concise and throw everyone off ... after all if you posted, then I posted ... Gord would have to cull this thread ... smirk.gif
