Re: Where did you go to School?

Vinny, We will need to discuss the Yankees and the DH. This may require PMs. I am with Xan on the designated hitter. I did finally see the Mona Lisa in Paris a couple of years ago. If we put a mustache above that mysterious smile, we get the designated hitter. Just thought I'd pass along a thought t...

Re: Where did you go to School?

Kbg and Vinny, Summer, 1995: DW and I saw Christopher Cross as a warm up act for the Beach Boys. The location was Jones Beach State Park. There is that amphitheater on the north side of the park. As to the complaint that Cross was the opening act, I think he did those 3 songs you mentioned and out! ...

Re: Meeting In Person

I am in NYC at least twice a year. I will also travel to another locale and include it as part of a bigger trip. If a location is mentioned, I will try to arrange transportation.

Re: Meeting In Person

Vinny,

Meeting members while passing thru may be the best possibility.

Tech,

Did you arrange your meet using PMs?

Re: Meeting In Person

Vinny, It was fun organizing for the several NYC meets. There has been a recent chat about a Texas meet. Smith1776 has expressed an interest in a meet, as has Moda. I would like to attend if i could get picked up at the airport. Not sure if this could happen. I think someone local would need to take...

Re: 600 Members Coming Up

We got the 1,000, so I will end my preoccupation with this thread.

Cheers.

Re: Designated Hitter

Vinny,

I've argued against the DH previously.


TennPaGa is a great contributor to this thread.

IT's getting late but I'll be contributing more in a day or2.

Looks like Xan and I are on the same page re the DH.

Cheers.

Re: 600 Members Coming Up

I viewed the increasing membership as an indicator of the popularity of Harry, his thoughts and the 4x25 portfolio. I often wonder will this site gain greater recognition- ergo the tracking of the membership. There were a couple of thoughts expressed that a significant downturn would be the key to p...

Re: 600 Members Coming Up

Three thoughts:

Will an unknown number of bots diminish the significance of getting the 1,000th member?

We are one member away from 1,000.

Will there be a Y2K-style problem if only 3 digits have been allotted to the membership total? We could go to 000 members.

Just thought I’d ask.

Re: 600 Members Coming Up

998. Two more for 1,000.

This forum took 7 and 1/4 years to get 600 members. Another 400 in only 2.5 years!

An indication of popularity or utility?

May pick up another 400 in 6 months, if things roll along well.

Re: 600 Members Coming Up

We inch closer to 1,000 members. The price of gold may/may not influence the outcome.
