Default Gotta share this Be warned: Warm & Fuzzy!

Today we got a beautiful, formal wedding invitation addressed to myself, one of my partners, and 3 of our admins.


The invitation was from one of our long time affiliates.


Attached to the invitaion was a personal note saying that the income from her SI ads helped pay for the wedding and allowed her to pay for the trip.


Makes me feel all gushy inside!

Nice touch.

Please excuse a slightly off topic remark. I certianly hope that one of our newest member's profile and posts serves to educate and dare I say enlighten certain members of the internet world.

Next folks can point their browser to their favorite whois DB resource and carefully study the data. Or just click this link:

Last but not least, after a post or two visit Arin at:

I'm mentioning this in the hopes that the issue is closed and additional details and or vents on this issue would probably not be appropriate. Then again, a thumb print and or DNA sample may be required.

Kathy, Glad to see I am not the only one confused about Steve's post. I went through it twice and didn't get it. It is certainly off topic - way off topic as far as I can see but perhaps Steve can fill us in.

By the way, congrats Robert. Must be nice to get some really positive feedback now and then. I'm sure you get more than your fair share of the other kind of feedback

You should try reading it when you have just woken as was my case

Default more disturbing sweet things

That is cool Robert, last week was my girlfriends birthday, I went to her folks house and they gave me the wedding rings that her grandmother once wore. I took the rings to be sized, and can happily and proudly say that she is now wearing the engagement ring.

We are now trying to decide a date, I wonder how many searches it will take to pay for this?

P.S. I know what Steves post was about...I think

Dave

Dave,

It's not how many searches it take to pay for the wedding....

It's how many searches it takes to pay for the marriage....



As a funny aside.... I used to own a bike rental shop at the Jersey shore, I had it for 2 years before I was married. My wife (then fiancee) and I would be on the beach and we'd see folks pedaling by on my rental bikes on the boardwalk and she'd say "there's goes a set of dish towels." Another bike would go by and she'd say "There goes a can opener"

It was funny at the time.

There goes my money

I think what Steve is trying to say is that Mr SteveS from SIC has registered with us and we shouldn't confuse Mr SteveS from SIC for our very own Mr SteveS from GV.

hehe. An all-too-common misconception.

As if our tireless Steve could spare enough time to administer the SearchTraffic program when he has all of us troublemakers to deal with on a daily basis.

I already checked his profile when he was listed as newest member and pending review, so I guess all this went over my head

Maybe Steve_S can fill us in if your theory is correct

SI's "Steve_S" will be changing his handle to "SStankowitz."

That would make it even more confusing, maybe SteveS should change HIS name to SStankowitz and SM stay as Steve_S
