In a post-bio TRF world, I thought I'd take it upon myself to say a few words on behalf of our latest Solar Federalist.  

He comes from the Land Down Under yet spends much of his time in the ocean finding the perfect waves.  He's different strings !    

different strings , you haven't made "too much fuss and bother" in these parts simply because you're an easy-goin' dude that always has a kind word to say.  When others have seemed down or going through a stressful point in their lives, you were there offering them support.  And when you spoke openly about your health condition and car situation, we tried to give you the same kind of support that you've shown on countless occassions.  

You've been a hardcore Rush fan for decades yet you've never seen the boyz in concert.  This kind of dedication seems worthy of an honorary degree of some sort.  And though the thread "Rush Petitioned to tour Australia In 2007" wasn't specifically started on your behalf, there were many of us here that IMMEDIATELY thought of you.  And as a result, we signed that petition.  Rush touring Oz is a slim chance at best, but it's a chance nonetheless.  Here's hoping for the best.  trink39.gif

Omedetoo (congratulations) ds !  You've earned it.  

"...you better run you better take cover !"  
Because different strings  has assumed control !!!!!

Though we don't get to catch up too often live in chat, I always look forward to your posts.  Me and CeeJ consider ourselves very lucky to have YOU as a friend.  

Cuz we figure we'll save money and just crash at your crib when we finally get to OZ.  laugh.gif

Congratulations, different strings!! trink39.gif

He's never a post whore, but you can always tell who he is because his posts means something. I, on the other hand, have about 70% of my posts in Grand Designs laugh.gif So congratulations, ds, you have truly earned it.

Thank you to everyone who has replied to this thread so far. I am actually a little emotional right now- I am so deeply touched by your kind words. JB , a special thank you to you my friend for my own personal little bio- I feel very honoured as I was a little disheartened to learn that the admins were winding this up and you took it on yourself to do this for me. I will continue to post far and beyond this milestone but for me this means so much I can't even begin to explain.I feel I have made quite a few friends here in TRF and it really is a great cyber home- but of course, everyone has a love for my favourite band 2.gif .

I am looking forward so much so seeing them tour,hopefully next year, attending RUSHCON 07 and meeting some of you. Thanks once again and to JB, I had a Kirin beer tonight just afer I got home from work oh and a Moosie too Test. Love to everyone else. trink39.gif
