Oh How The Time Flies

We're steadily approaching the 1st of December, right now only about 40 minutes away. December means a few things to me. The weather finally starts to cool down a little bit, I can hole up with my tuba and do a lot of playing. I get to be a lot more active here. But, this December I get to celebrate an anniversary. I've been at Overclock.net for 3 years.

It's a long time, when I think on it. Gosh, I was 13 when I joined. I've spent a lot of time doing a lot of things. I founded and ran the first incarnations of our GPU overclock database. I've admined in CS:S and BF2. I spent a little over a year now as a moderator. And I keep coming back for more, even after breaking 10,000 posts and countless hours spent.

These forums have become an integral part of my life. An opportunity to learn some and read some and teach some and scold some and be happy some and be pissed some. I am member of other forums; I don't think any compare to this one. Who else is better than instant messaging at times?

So, my hat is off to you Overclock.net. And my hat is also off to the members here who keep me wanting to come back day after day to learn from and with, to assist and be assisted by, and to enjoy the pursuit of performance with. Lilly Tomlin has a famous quote, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." Well, you guys are thoughtful, and you're committed, and you've certainly changed my world. Thank you.

Here's to 3 years, and here's hoping for many more after that! I can't wait to take some of you along on the journey and ride the OCN train to wherever it goes.
