I joined almost 5 months ago! I feel like I've accomplished something by actually staying active on a forum that long.
Got a smaller board with white ALPS, Montereys, Cherry Blues, Reds, or Clears you'd like to offload?  Shoot me a PM. Looking for a grey Leopold FC700R in particular.

Wyse buy colors were GSY for the dark grey, GBA for the light grey, and BBI for the fonts.

It's been a long year with lot of arguments, nasty fights behind, especially with KL (funny thing is that I think we are fine by now), but most importantly I have gained a lot of knowledge and made some new friends.
Thanks geekhack, especially iMav. I'm really suprised he hasn't banned me yet.

Congrats on the anni,  almost been a year for me too.  You guys and the Ron Paul stuff I dont get though,  plain and simple he is not going to get the nom and when he doesnt hes going to run as an independant and steal votes from whoever the actual Rep. candidate will be (probley Romney) and hand the election to Obama *cringe*.  Not to mention the guy is a complete racist and homophobe.

8 keyboards in a year?

I joined last spring, but have done at least 3 or 4 times that, since I have access to a lot of variety.

I have only bought 1 in a direct new "retail" setting (a Leopold from Elite) but have gotten several free from friends or garbage piles, bought a dozen or two from salvage houses/yard sales/thrift stores, and another dozen or more on ebay (including rawko).

Of these, I have kept less than a quarter of them, sold a quarter of them on ebay, parted out a quarter of them, given away a few, and donated a quarter of them back to charity. If my numbers do not add up to 100%, it is rounding errors.

So now, I have a small collection of very nice boards, a handful up for sale, and a big pile in the corner of the garage waiting for various rehab/repair/re-assembly projects, and an irritated wife.

You are probably wise to keep your numbers down.

PS - an atheist would have great difficulty getting elected in the US. that "separation of church and state" stuff has not been taken seriously by the majority of the voting public since around the time of the Civil War.

Almost a year after RiGS joins, riggs joins. Coincidence? I think not.

Thanks. Your opinion reminds me of this ladies in the first part of the video below. I blame the media as they try to prevent a Ron Paul win with bunch of lies and ignorance. I highly recommend to watch it, as it provide some clarity on Ron Paul's real message by nicely covering ignorance with the facts.

I think Ron Paul is hilarious to be honest, it's a shame he wouldn't really get to enact any of his bat**** plans if he actually did get elected.  The media are annoying though, it's not like he's any less viable a candidate than Mitt Romney is.  Obama must be laughing his arse off right now, he's made a total balls of his first term but he's still going to win a second whilst ripping Romney to pieces in the process.  The Republican party is an utter embarrassment.

Also, these are fantastic.  Ron Paul should rip them off YouTube and put them on television as his official campaign promos.

This is a culmination of several debate topics I've had about Ron Paul over the past few years. I made this movie to put them all in one place for others to share. Please pass it along.

I get this from the video description, but yeah I agree.
There are other amazing Ron Paul endorsment videos on youtube.
