Hi to all the Members on the thread.
I want to thank you all for responding & livening up a the forum a bit.
Quite a spectrum of responses emerged & it was most interesting & fun to read them.
I feel compelled to respond very briefly to each Member that replied, or risk being thought of as rude, which I try not to be.
So here goes..
Thanks for releasing full details of the deal for which you publicly thanked Doug for.
Wow, thats some deal you done, no wonder you are excited.
We can all now consider the pros & cons & my personal opinion is, that if there is no color turning red in "The tall Men" then you both got a good deal. A fair swap.
However, if there is turning red, then I think Doug got the better of you on that deal.
The important thing is that you are both happy & you want more of the same deals.
Come now Stuart, When effusive thanks are offered in in the Forum to the Moderator, the Members in the room are naturally going to wonder what was the deal they are talking about.
Why mention it here if we arent going to be told the rest?
Your advice on my future posting brevity is noted & taken on board.
Your words are re assuring. Its good to know that you don't have any favourites here.
I also agree that Doug does a very good job moderating here in the Forum, assisted most ably by Kevin & Brad.
However, he was thanked publicly for something done in private.
Curiosity impulsively compelled me to comment on the lack of detail.
Thanks for only dissagreeing with me a on only a little & thanks a lot for agreeing with me on the majority of the stuff.
You are right, It was serious thanking going on.
but when you thank a room Moderator with such obvious gratitude, it's bound to get tongues wagging because we were only told half the story. People want to know the lot.
Thanks for the support & you are a man that understands others well. I always enjoy your posts. We think similarly on stuff.
The War of the Worlds is one of my favourite classics & this reaction here is mild compared to that. I am flattered,,heheeheh
I am gradually reverting back to childhood as it was a fun time & far too short.
If you feel that way, then what real interest could you have in the post?
I may sound serious but I really ain't.
Projector Heaven is a fun place where seriousness is restricted to diagnosing troubled Movie Projectors.
The rest is devoted to the enjoyment of owning amazing vintage Projectors & assisting others to enjoy their home movies by fixing as many Projectors as possible before I die.
Thanks for your understanding. I always read your posts with great interest. We could have a lot in common, especially our fondness for Eumigs including P8 & Pathes.
Its great to have you as our moderator.
Deadpan is better than Dead, I think.
I think you may have come out of that film deal with Joe, slightly ahead. Congratulations.
PS I love your signature line.
I will be trying out all the Gremlins to see which ones work.
Faulty Gremlins need to be reported to Management by members.
You took my in the right spirit.
Thanks for the supportive words.
Hope I covered you all...
