As others have indicated in your thread, we all think Greg has done really great things with PF. And in many ways we have become a family. So, with that in mind, when Greg gets out of line, may we come to you now?

Hello Gregs Dad, very nice to have you here. I think this calls for the "special" reserve fish. Perhaps the Coelacanth?

Hey everyone!!! Yes, Greg's Mother and I are unbelieveably proud of Greg and his Sister. I'm a bit of a neophyte with forums, but have been into computers since my first Apple II in the early 80's. Yes, I'm that old.

It's very touching to hear all the compliments about Greg!

:rofl:

Welcome Greg'sDad! I think a lot of people joined this forum as neophytes to internet forums, so you're in good company here. That's one of the nice things about the community Greg has built here, everyone of all abilities from beginner to expert are welcome and encouraged to participate.

You're only old if you ever programmed by punching cards. :biggrin:

In my mind I can just see Greg trying to explain the fish to his dad. :rofl:

I don't know what started it, but this helped it along.
The Monty Python fish-slapping dance:



oh, and I can't take credit for finding that special smilie. A very sweet member named Mickey brought that to us.

Does punching paper tape count? :wink:

Hey! I resemble that incineration. I spent many long hours in college at IBM consoles punching cards. Bundle them, turn them in to the computer "priests" and pray that they will result in a nice fat white and green fanfold printout. It really stunk if you got errors and there was insufficient time to re-code, re-submit, and get the cards run in time to make the assignment deadline. Our engineering school was large and when 1st and 2nd year students (in huge classes) got programming assignments, the people running computer were swamped.
