    Patrick_B Has Crossed the 10,000 Post Milestone

    Wanted to give a call-out to our own Patrick_B for recently crossing over the 10,000 post threshold.

    That's a milestone on several counts. For starters, there's currently only 9 members in that elite club. Second, as a moderator, significant time is spent making judgement calls and performing various housekeeping tasks that keep the forum orderly and well-run. Were it not for these activities, he could have made even more posts.

    Please join me in recognizing Patrick_B for reaching this milestone and for all his contributions to TFP!

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.

    As many of you know, Patrick is an easy going guy and a huge asset to the forum. Because he is so easy to be around, I try my best to tease him mercilessly both in public and in PM's. Unfortunately, I get it right back.

    After all that, he is an informed and thoughtful member of our community and he is appreciated on many levels.

    Congrats, Patrick! I hear it as a recurring theme around here that TFP is much different than most other forums on the internet in that it's well run and much more inviting and friendly than nearly all of them out there. You're a HUGE reason for that.

    Here's to another 10K!
