Hey Ashraf -

What do I have to do to get rid of the “I’m new around here” tag on all my posts Cry. Although I don’t write a lot, I’ve been around since the “politicallymotivated” days Surprised! How about giving me a break and a label of “Old F@rt that’s been around awhile” or something like that.Wink

Funny you should mention that. A few of us have been joking around recently about starting a dotTech old farts’ club (can I say “farts”? in the non-flatulent sense?) … so grab your zimmer frame, your Coke-bottle glasses and your sippy cup …

Hmmm, Mr. Boss is taken … that cuts the options down a bit.

@ karen: Having a chuckle before I sign off … the “F@rt” becomes highlighted in the posts, and when I clicked on it to see what would happen, my gmail opened “compose a new mail” to F@rt.

Fine by me, since I’m probably older than most of you here. Thisthis and this are the first “computing” devices I worked on! One of the first “computers” was this. So…..I guess the term “Old Fart” does apply! Wink

aha!

It seems that membership time is not a vital factor for advancing level.

On the contrary, number of posts is the usual factor.

Is this why many persons are joking all the time?!

@Taz: You can add that for your avatar yourself. I believe Locutus made a post about how to do that somewhere…

Hey Taz. As Ebony happily found out recently, you will have the coveted title of ‘Nerd,’ just as soon as your 50th post hits. Ya, length of time here seems important too. Well, you’re 1/2 way there. I was arounf for about 9 months before I got the ‘upgrade.’ So, keep on postin’ Smile

I’m still all for an “Old Fart’s Club.”

Can I be member #2 since Taz got to be first? Or maybe I should be #3, because I think it was Phoenix that first brought up the idea. Or was it you Karen?

@ Wheezer: I can’t remember – that’s what happens when you’re an old fart!
