I'm convinced that people here would join "your team" just for the sake of it without requiring any money. :)

Also, congratulations! And don't target Facebook kids.

You just get the feeling IsoBuster's still harbouring a grudge about that loss, biding his time, stalking his prey quietly, waiting for you to leave your apartment unawares, ready to pounce. Lurking on the forum for 7 years? Just to conveniently show up now? Hmm. That's a hunter's dedication, that is. "Cheers mate" will sound more like a "Check-mate" when his evil plan comes together. :wink:

So is there an "Angry Birds - X2", in the works, where the pigs are hiding behind file and folder icons? That would probably be the equivalent to laying bricks.

P.S - For all my complaining (OK, "whining"), it's still the program that runs from boot-up to shut down on all my computers. Thanks for your hard work and loyalty to US!

peter "isobuster" may not have the epsilon but 10x the traffic roughly means 10x the money, so if I'm happy you can imagine he's even happier. He's a good friend

As Dr. Hook taught us saliently back in 1979, when you've got something they don't "...you gotta watch your friends." :wink:

Money is overrated. Superficial trinkets and awards no one has ever heard of are everything. :D

10 bloody years, where has that gone. I can still remember using 2x. As pj stated, it is the one app that gets installed every time, and is on from start to finish.

Happy buffday x2!!

Nikos, perhaps one day we'll meet at the Bike show again

Nikos,

I read your BD blog post and found it very interesting and enjoyable reading.

Congratulations to you and your 'baby' on its 10th BD. :beer: Here's to beer money!

the ship may be abandoning us. The PC-desktop is a deteriorating medium, kids prefer touchpads to browse facebook nowadays. I feel sometimes like a saddler watching the car take over the world. A forced career move to brick laying will be a sour end to the story :)
Things might not come down to that, Nikos. You might find comfort in the following articles:

Microsoft needs to follow Apple's lead by integrating desktop and mobile

Is BYOD here to stay?

Anyway, congratulations on your 10 years and here's to many more. :beer:

You have made our computer life a lot easier. You deserve credit.
