1000 and counting...

After giving it a lot of thought, and added pressure from you guys,
I finally realize that its better to preemptively kill the mofo that is the 1000th post.

I will not have anything interesting / intellectual / smart / witty to say so if you are expecting that, best go elsewhere.
This is not for you.

That being said, it has been a while that I have been in EF.
And not so long that I have been actively participating in threads, scribbling, mostly inane nonsense which some people found remotely interesting/funny.

At this point, I would like to thank you all. EF, for me, has been a place where I can be free.
I can be myself, and relate to a lot of people.
We have common problems, common gripes, common complaints, common nuances. And this is what makes EF special for me. It feels like a neighborhood pub where all kinds of people come and meet after a long day trying to make each other feel better.

So, thank you ladies and gentlemen. It is a pleasure knowing you online or in person.

To add to that, I found out that I was not the only nerd who was nearing 30 and still crazy about video games, comic books, games, action figures. It helped me reaffirm in my sanity. And that I am not totally bonkers. You, fellow nerds, you know who you are, let me extend a special thanks to you.

As some of you know, I came to switzerland in July, 2005. It has been a long time but it seems like only yesterday that a naive guy, with nothing in hand, came to this country looking to make a living. And here I am, almost 7 years later, still trying to achieve my dream. There have been highs and lows, ups and downs, but mostly I am thankful that I had the chance to be here. This is the only place I know, the only life I know, and to be honest I cannot think of a place where I would rather be.

I don't know where life will take me, what paths I will tread, but I do know that I will be here, on EF, annoying the pants off you as long as I can.

If you are still reading this, then once again, thanks, from the bottom of my slightly crazy...nerdy heart,
...with a cherry on top.

That was your 1,000th post ... provided no mod deletes anything else of yours.

Hmmm. Could do with some more work. 2/10.

Oh ... some mod just moved this thread to Off topic ... (because, let's be honest, it ain't got much to do with Switzerland, and it's not a Forum Support candidate either).

Two more posts to go ...

Re: 1000 and counting...

Oh, Dear mods. You did manage to move it.

Brilliant ! Now I get to do it again. Hi5 ?

PS: I really don't care...it was the 1000th for me.
What comes next is...in the words of the Borg....futile!
