I have received many thank you email & letters from
many of you, and now it is my turn to thank you.
Without all the support from you out there, this site would
definitely not be as successful as it is. I may be doing the backend stuff
to keep the site running, but you guys are the ones that help create this
wealth of information found in the forums. Before I thank you fellow TDI
lovers, I have to thank Arcterex
who runs www.ufies.org and provides
me with the web space and web access. Some of the donations have been
going to help him keep this site up and deal with the traffic you guys/gals
In 1999 when I first upgraded the forums, to something similar to what you see
today, the following were eager to jump aboard and give some support (in
no particular order): 99Jet,
(Now retired, but our first moderator).
In 2000 a second round started when a number for people wanted to help the site
and convinced me to take some money to help cover the rest of the software
costs & ensure that the forums could stay up (i.e. some hardware upgrades
to make sure we don't get overloaded, or attempt):). They are (in no particular
James Warnick*, murraywest,
Doornek, and DZLLOU.
Not to be outdone, some people have decided that if I run the TDI pages,
I should drive a TDI. There fore they started a "Get
Fred a TDI Pledge Sheet" (Which unfortunatly got lost:(). You are all too kind. Some of these
people decided to just send their money right away and I'm keeping that
money for TDI page upgrades, maintenance, and maybe even to get me into
a TDI sooner that I had planned. Thanks goes out toPaul,
and a few more (sorry I missed your names:().
Also many of you have emailed & mailed me articles to post. Except
for some articles from BKmetz,
I never recorded your usernames. I'm sorry about this, but I really appreciate
the info, and please send it to the forums or my way if you find good
new articles of interests.
And last, but definitely not least: All of you who have contributed your
time and knowledge into the forums, eh.
THANK YOU ALL
