    Congratulations, Steve and Gorts.

    I'm a relative newbie, but this site has been a godsend.

    I'm not sure how I first happened on to it, probably doing a Google search to help me find a new turntable. I will never forget, and always be grateful to Gort Gary (who I see has been here since the beginning!) for sending on the right path.

    Since then, this has been to go-to place for me in furthering my music media education, and just enjoying life. No other site gives me that sense.

    Whether you have tremendous expertise the areas discussed here, or like me, a perennial newbie looking to learn, this place is equally welcoming.

    This is also the place where I found a long lost high school friend, and dived even farther into my path to superior sounding music.

    And I've even had a chance to meet and have some real enjoyable hanging out time with some greatforum members, like Warren Jarrett (a non-salesman salesman, and a great guy), and even our host, who not only has given us all the best-sounding music possible, but is a great guy, too. (A real mensch, as my grandmother would say).

    I've gotten so much here!

    Thank you - looking forward to the next 15 years!

    SHF taught me how to talk without cussing. Something I've never done before. Whoa!

    As much as I dislike certain elements about it today, I would rather have it the way it is now with no bullying being tolerated.

    I remember cheekily emailing Steve on the Phonogram mailing list back in early 2001, about his mastering recollections being captured somehow and he mentioned he had his own domain name that he hadn't done anything with....
    Time goes by very quickly!! :)

    Ahh, right, so that's why there's so many Beatles threads on here! ;)

    Joking aside, congratulations on 15 years and many more to come!

    I've loved this place for many years, but not 15. I didn't have a computer until 2005... or I would have loved it even longer.

    Congratulations on creating this Big Town for us.

    I can't even count the number of times I visit this forum daily. Over the years, it has become a big part of my life.
    I have learned so much and been turned on to so many artists and albums that I never would have been exposed to otherwise.
    Keep rolling!!!!
    Thanks Steve for the forum and for all your great work.
