Congrats. I wouldn't want to see how many more to catch up to Mr. Bill himself or even Tasurinchi then (the latter of which is relatively inactive these days, but around).

And once you do that, you begin to realize how many "heavy hitters" have disappeared from the forum over the last few years...I would argue that the ThinkPads have lost *a lot* of their initial attraction to the long-time-users, but it could be just me being my grouchy self... :mrgreen:

Congrats on your feather!
I had a sense of pride of me gaining this prestige for the first time when I got my first feather.
Prior to ThinkPads, I was an avid gamer during the GameScore of Microsoft Xbox Live & Trophies of Sony Playstation.
Of course my favorite game(s) at the time was Call of Duty online multiplayer so resetting your skills/weapons after gaining a certain rank gave you a prestige icon. I think I stopped after the 7th time, many many hours consumed in those games.

So naturally when I found out about ThinkPads I came here and happy soaked all information from this website.
I thought this website was odd because you couldn't set your own avatar image, considering all the other forums on how popular that feature was, it gave thinkpads forum a professional theme.
Coffee, ThinkPads & Nikon Fan.
