My SWAG arrived - I am no longer one of the Riff-Raff !! ...

As such I think TR should, as part of the new changes, build a Special Room where all the swag-owners can go and discuss the activities of all the riff-raff.

I am bowled over by TechRepublic's (read Sonja's) generosity and as such, now wish to put something back in. I think a V.I.P. room would go down well with some of us, just to keep the others out.

I'm deliberately posting this in the Tech Questions area as the punters in the discussion area can't earn SWAG (much).

So now that we've lost our little bit of TR in the form of the old Blue Box, how's about a special room instead ??

** We could be the SWOTRs - Swag Owners of TechRepublic !

I'm Still Around

I still check in from time to time and look around.

Never miss TROLOV and usually listen to the member spotlights. (Sonja could have selected Scotland the Brave instead of Irish Eyses are Smiling for OM's intro).

There was quite a bit of input from TRIs during site redesign, the vast majority of which was not implemented (or rather ignored since it didn't agree with their vision).

Most questions I scan through have been adequately addressed by others -- no need to add redundancy. Most of my "spare time" nowdays is spend on another help site dearly loved by TR staff. On that site, they at least attempt to get closure from questioners. TR was unwilling/unable to implement a similar program although it was highly recommended. I have a bunch of EE tee shirts to keep my TR coffee cup company ;&gt

There's still a great community on TR and a lot of valuable information. I'll be around until age or senility gets to me -- I'm one of the old gray heads both literally and figuratively.

These I know for sure:

Oz_Media
TheChas
Hal9000
apotheon
willcomp
BFilmFan
house
Maxwell Edison
jdclyde
jaqui
sleepin'dawg

I had you (jdclyde) and jaqui on my original list, but I searched some of those first discussions and I didn't see any posts from you guys. It is possible, however, that I missed some of them. (The ones I did review were hard to find.)

GG didn't become a member until 2005. The original TRIs were in late 2004.

Who else am I missing?

maecuff?

Old Timers

by BFilmFan In reply to Edited list again

Sometimes it does seem some of us have been here since the doors of this place opened. I had an earlier handle in '99, but forgot the password and created this identity and managed to hold onto it all these years.

Coming up on 8 years here now.

Makes me think of some thing I have been working on in private time for some of my younger nieces and nephews and such to try and pass on some of the thoughts old Uncle Jerr's had over these years.

that there was a spot to check on Thumbs. It would be interesting to find out who was the first TR member to get Swag. :)

you mean Max's original 15?

by CG IT In reply to I didn't know

that was before there was thumbs and we had a point system. Joe Moore, Maxwell Edison, DMiles, there was one lady, and 2 others than all were in the couple thousand points. I figured those were the ones who were original 15.
