Yeah I was going to say that too.... but then I decided not to...
Cuz it's gonna be some kind of different, with all that Microsoft staff, isn't it
And all those name changing.....
But hey you don't know if you don't try, right ?
I just hope that the atmosphere here is gonna stay the same...!!!

I'm not sure really. This is the first i've heard of it too! I'm sure things will stay familiar.

For this post the author bassfisher6522 has received gratitude : Stu

congrats!!!! But......and there is always a but..... This is just my personal input on this as I live in a small town and know what happens when a super power comes into town and takes over....all the mom and pop stores with the friendly service and care that one comes to expect is no longer their. I'm not saying this is the case here but it is inevitable.....a la the Matrix. I have some serious mixed feelings on this. It could be the best thing to happen to this site and on the flip side could be the worse thing to happen and time well only tell. I'm sad and excited all at the same time. Rich, I must admit this is a milestone for you as this is the first time I've herd of a help forum to be bought out (acquired) by Microsoft. I am truly impressed by this. You have always maintained a this site and cared for it like is was a child and as a child grows up it wants to leave the nest and go it's on way. Then we must sit back and watch them make their own decisions weather right or wrong and support them. Once again, a big congratulations and a Job well done.

Read this about an hour after getting up this morning. It took me three hours to realize the date.

You are going to have to top this one next year you know.
