Thank you, laborers!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
It's Labor Day, which got me thinking about the great folks who tinker in the background here, and wanting to recognize them and the great job they do. Our Moderators, led by Cirquerider, are a crackerjack posse of first responders who keep this place free of spam, trolls, cranks, flimflam, flotsam, jetsam, and bad juju. Thank you Trekchick, Phil, T-Square, TheRusty, Tyrone, BillA, Bob Peters, epic, Nobody, WTFH, and, not least, Cirquerider. I also want to recognize SSH, Bob Barnes, cgeib, and weems, who are burning the candle at both ends to develop and produce cool features and content for your pleasure. The new guys, Andrew H and dcneiner, have been busy behind the scenes for months--aside from the new ads, the store, the revamped ESA site, you also may have noticed how much faster the site is loading--and I want to thank them for toiling so long and hard cleaning out the old and bringing in the new, faster and safer. I also want to recognize and thank our friend and partner Dan Egan for setting the standard for dedication, perspiration, and inspiration.

Saving the best for last: thank you Dave Chan for hosting epicski and being our server administrator and VB hacker extraordinaire these many years for peanuts and sometimes not even that. You deserve special recognition for the tremendous service you have given us for so long.

Thanks is all you'll get, but a heap of 'em you'll have!

Thanks AC, for your initial labour of love.

Some of us drew short straw and had to work here on Labor Day while most went out and played. We are getting comped two days in ski season though to make up for it.

Recognition

Thankyou everyone.

Being, as my wife says, Electronically deprived - I really don't know all you do as it is way over my head but I certainly appreciate you and your labors. Nothing good is ever easy.

Sincerely, Pete

You said you wanted the short straw, for your cocktails on the patio.
I hear steaks are on the grill

Nolo, thanks so much for the confidence, faith and friendship you have given. Few know the tremendous gift that you are to this site. I am richer in spirit for having the privilege of knowing you.

Dchan, nolo is correct. I could not have done the work I do if not for the assistance of you, and immediate response when I beckon. Thanks, multitudes!

Cirqueass, nuff said about you

I hung around to keep Phil on his toes. I don't recall breaking anything, but I don't recall not breaking anything either. It was a good time with just a few if us posting away between meals and snacks.

And on my toes I was.

...Still trying to figure out what jetsam really is. Were we supposed to take Monday off?

You are welcome!

Flotsam floats, jetsam sinks, and flimflam bedazzles. Bad juju is bad juju.

if flotsam floats on the water, why does not jetsam float in the air?

Well, now, here's some edification on the subject (I was wrong about jetsam, a cousin to jettison): http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/f...nd-jetsam.html

Typical instructors, not working on the same set of definitions.

On that note, I've finally concluded that ski instruction is easier done than said.
