Smile Forum 10 years old today!

From my profile I joined this forum (as the first member and admin) on 20th December 2002, so that must mean that the forum is 10 years old today!

Thank you to everyone who has participated, especially the long-term members and the mod team. Here's to the next 10 years!

If there was ever an excuse to open a bottle of beer this is it (FX... sound of crown cork being removed, then glug glug glug). Many thanks to Paul and the team for a super job.

Happy Birthday....though the missus, between clenched teeth, asked me to say "Thanks very much for the forum Paul. If Andrew hadn't have found it the house wouldn't be full of old radios and he wouldn't keep coming home like an excited five year old with things the size of a battleship that don't actually work".

These words are pure gold, much like the forum itself.
Many happy returns to the board and lang may its lum reek, as Burns would say had he been a member here.
