It has been brought to my attention that I've just passed my 15th anniversary as a Webmasterworld member.
Time is a very relativistic skewed critter depending on how one squints looking back over my time here. Of course it may just be that I'm older and it's my faculties that are skewed and mind that is relatively gone...
I'd ignore the 'occasion' except that it provides an excuse to thank Brett for providing this place and all those, over the years, who have provided wit and wisdom, inspiration and guidance. The trite 'too many to thank' is sometimes actually true; thank you one and all.
That said there three whose assistance over the years I especially appreciated:
* Claire for holding my hand as I battled table addiction and regained a productive web life via CSS.
* Bill for discussing various ways to battle bots (and laughingly snidely putting me back on point).
* Ted for sharing/discussing overarching views on web strategy and marketing.
Our web lives intersect and then diverge whether through retirement or death, change in career or interests, yet the loss is no less poignant for never having met 'in the flesh'. The sharing of hard found knowledge and hard fought experience has been a major part of the reality of Webmasterworld and I'm getting maudlin without having touched a drop. Best go remedy that.
Again, thanks much.
