"So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieu"

Had to get one last movie quote in before I left.

Been fun folks and, believe me, this is not a decision I’ve taken lightly. This is a great forum with many wonderful contributors prepared to share their time and expertise willingly, I will miss the interaction with you all and I remain convinced the GF will be a great machine and that it will deliver to everyone of you all that you expect.

Good luck going forward,
Cheers

Sorry, no.
Still here, I’m sure I’ll be “ejected” soon. :frowning:

Still around, eh? Well, there’s a Monty Python quote for everything:

MORTICIAN: Here – he says he’s not dead!
CUSTOMER: Yes, he is.
DEAD PERSON: I’m not!
MORTICIAN: He isn’t.
CUSTOMER: Well, he will be soon, he’s very ill.
DEAD PERSON: I’m getting better!
CUSTOMER: No, you’re not – you’ll be stone dead in a moment.

…and so forth. Here’s hoping they let you stay on the forum for a while. :slight_smile:

Or the alternative Monty Python skit:

“he’s not dead, he’s just resting”

Ah well. Suppose the PBS repeats of that show are well beyond even most people my age anyhow…and probably a decade or more older too. Show may have had it’s original airing in B&W. But having odd things trigger odd things in my head, I saw the “adieu” and thought “adios” and the “auf wiedersehen” and my mind filled in the final “good night” from the television ending theme. So thought I’d share.

Anywho, you’ll be missed if you get “ejected.” Here’s to hoping you get to stay.

Used to watch that at my grandmother’s when we visited, as a very wee lass.

(Black & White, 3 channels, cartoons only on Saturday morning, so you actually found yourself looking forward to the weekend, and that was it!)

Those were the days! (Actually learned to read for fun.) Chuckle!

I used to watch it with my grandparents on their 12" B&W TV when I visited them. Years later my uncle said “You know, the show gets better the older I get.” I still watch it sometimes. My wife thinks I watch it solely to annoy her. I assure her that I watch it because it’s the best thing on - annoying her is just a fringe benefit.
