    Thanks everybody, from the bottom of my heart (yes, I have a heart)

    If it weren't for all the members here telling me I'm a guru, and I'm "the man" to go to when you need PC/Windows help I would never have known how good I really am at what I do. I've never taken a course, nor have I ever followed the "norm" in the computer world.

    Heck, if I were put in with a group of tech's who have been through certification I would be like a fish out of water. I don't think I would even understand the terms they use, and all the abbreviations etc. I understand things in my own way, not the way things are taught.

    Computers were more of a hobby, and an interest to me. That's how I learned, through reading, and doing. Sometimes just playing, or digging around in files I saw on my HD and wondered about.

    I just want to say thank you to all of you for giving me the confidence to do what I do as a source of income. Not to mention the fact that I was handed an award from Microsoft due to what the members here think of me and my abilities. Along with that award came a ton of freebies, and opportunities. Some I've yet to take advantage of.

    Thanks everyone, it has lifted my spirits and self esteem

    You don't know how right you are, Norm.

    Code:
    while(GetMessage(&Msg, NULL, 0, 0) > 0)
    	{
    		TranslateMessage(&Msg);
    		DispatchMessage(&Msg);
    	}
    	return Msg.wParam;

    People will forget what you said... and people will forget what you did... but people will never forget how you made them feel.

    Norm, I've said it before....

    In my humble opinion, SG is the better for you having decided to hang your hat here. It's us that need to thank you.

    Downhill said it best. You are a huge part of this place in many ways.

    You've helped me countless times and I still use pretty much all the things you showed me weekly at home and work.

    YOU'RE the man, man!!

    Who did you pay to say you are a "guru"?

    IS it the same person you paid to call you "sex-machine"?
