Happy Thanksgiving (2005)

Postby Antony » Tue 22 Nov, 2005 7:33 pm

Dear valued SillyDog701 members,

We are always happy when Thanksgiving is approaching, because this wonderful time affords us the opportunity to thank all our valued SillyDog701 members.

This past year has been great to SillyDog701, continued to grow. The highlights of this past year are:
:idea: SillyDog701 continued to be one of the major independent support sites providing Netscape, Mozilla, Firefox supports;
:idea: SillyDog701’s main section - Netscape Browser Archive - has an updated layout, this new layout features an easier navigation thus providing users more information with fresher new look; also in July this year, we celebrated six years of Netscape Browser Archive. We’ve been around for quite a while, and we are still one of the best Netscape resource sites around.
:idea: SillyDog701 and MozInfo701 were redesigned with the easy-to-use, and clean layout.

SillyDog701 never forgets how we started. We started with the help of a free sub-domain and server space provided by Max Kington. Mr Kington asked for no return, and we are glad that we had the opportunity to pass this SillyDog701 tradition to other sites, including Don Luchini’s HardwareHacks 2000.

This past year has been a successful and challenging year for SillyDog701. We didn’t only have good things that we could celebrate, but we also had a few not-so-happy times - we’ve been attacked, [sdp=63887]accused and threatened[/sdp]. Rest assured, we are standing still, and stronger than ever, we are definitely more experienced. We don't self-claim we are the number 1 independent support site on the planet or the oldest peer supporting site around. We strive to provide the best technical support possible, and the friendliest community we can.

We always remind ourselves we cannot have today’s achievement without the support from our valued members. We thank you for your patronage and for allowing us to be of service to you.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Antony Shen
SillyDog701 Administrator

P.S. We would also like to thank the affirmation of SillyDog701’s success we received from our good friend. We were so proud that we were the target of someone’s cybersquatting campaign; we know we were the target because we were so good. Thank you.

Indeed. Antony, your help with HardwareHacks 2000 is something I will not forget anytime soon; that's something I'm thankful for. :)

Happy Thanksgiving and six years of the SillyDog701 community, everyone!

Firstly, thanks to Beayboy89 for showing me last year's Thanksgiving screenshot of Message Centre.

This is what we looked like last year (Thanksgiving 2004)

And this is what we are this year.

Antony: Thank you for your acknowledgment of the Thanksgiving holiday. (But I do like the latest blue color scheme better than your Thanksgiving color schemes. :))

SillyDog is a great site. I appreciates its services and its community.

yummy.

Since Thanksgiving is not a holiday in Australia, I will just eat something regular + a can of Coca-Cola.

Happy Thanksgiving Antony and to all the good folk at and on Silly Dog.
If I hadn't run into Silly Dog several years back I would, more than likely, be on my tenth computer instead of only my third. The "Goodwrench" guys and girl, (Ramona), got me through multiple problems and saved this particular fish from floundering in countless, waterless detours.
I have taken much more from S.D. than I have given—mainly because I needed much more help than I am capable of giving. And when I do learn something, it is only breadcrumbs compared to the content of the exceptional and tireless minds here on S.D..
I haven't been around much this past year because I am immersed in several new book projects and haven't done the group things because, frankly, they are way over my head. But again, Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Hi Hatewa..........my goodness it's been a long time.
Nice to see you are still surviving. :)
Did you get a lot of snow?

Antony, I have to agree with Hatewa, the site looks really bright and cheerful.
Nice work

Hi Lorraine.
Yes it has been a while. After all these years of shooting from the hip, I'm finally getting some discipline into my work style—been working on a new book and am learning to budget time better. As we get older the necessity of managing time becomes more apparent.

We only got a few inches of the white stuff here in southern NH.

Like your avatar.
