Happy birthday Jim!

Never met you, but I hope to be one of your customers at some point (Just hoping I get a slice of the 100 million pound lotto on friday!).

You've always been smart, courteous and funny, always a pleasure to read your posts.

Thank you one and all!!!

Why are all the people offering free drinks never around when I'm in a bar?

Erwin, consider it a compliment. You are the most knowledgeable gear-head I know.

I had a fantastic dinner at Madison's in Long Beach last night and scored a new Xbox 360. Now if I can just get some time to play with it. I've already sold more BFD's so far this year than any previous year and there's still almost two months left.

Thanks again to everyone and let's hope everyone's next year is as good as mine has been.

P.S. Dan, you forgot "Jimster" and "Jimmy crack corn"........
