    When I think about it, at least for me personally, 15 years on the internet is a lifetime !!!

    I mean sure...the internet has been around longer but the super participation surge didn't really occur till the mid 90s. My earliest foray's into it were the mid 90s when I'd turned 40.'s been part of my life for about 1/4 of it as I was uninitiated far into my life.

    I guess it's as shocking as getting electricity was for my grandparents and nearly as earth moving or should I say, cyber space moving. :D

    I hope to be able to read and participate for the rest of my life here playing side two of Abbey Road as I take my last breaths !!!! I may even hear Her Majesty if someone cranks it for me after It's Over. :magoo:

    Wait....that's Roy. :hide:

    Congratulations, and many more.

    By the way, something I've wondered about for awhile . . . what is the purpose of the ".tv"? Does it stand for something, or does it have a particular function (now and/or perhaps back in 2002 when the site began)? I've seen .com, .net, .org, .gov, etc., but never .tv.

    Is there any way to see when I started membership? It's probably in an obvious place but I couldn't find it.
    Either way, it's been fun and sometimes frustrating but there are enough really helpful, cool and passionate people here to balance out the 'noise'.
    I wonder where we'll be in 15 years...

    Congratulations Steve!!
    Thanks for your vision... you built it, and we sure did come.

  12. I've been active online since the late 1990s and spent quite a few years at various forums, though I'm honestly the most pleased to have discovered this place, as several people here were impressed enough with my knowledge that I was encouraged to write a book, which is an ongoing process. I'm genuinely thrilled at how much this community has deservedly grown in just the short time I've contributed, and I look forward to hopefully still being around for its 30th anniversary!

    Thanks to all who make this place run. I've learned a lot and added some great cd's to my collection through the marketplace. I raise my glass to make a toast for the last 15 years and to hopefully another 15.

    I've been a fan of Steve Hoffman ever since he did the Buddy Holly and Johnny Burnette & The Rock N' Roll Trio reissue LPs back in the 1980s, and his taste in music, along with the sterling quality of his work, will always speak for itself. I finally managed to score a copy of his remastered Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. II last year, and it was one of the greatest listening experiences I've ever had.

    This site has become a vital resource for me over the past few years. Thanks Steve, and congrats to everyone here. We're a lucky bunch.
