It is with great pleasure we welcome SarahJames as our newest Moderator.
While Sarah enjoys the rest of the Euroland summer, look for her frequent contributions as the season's change.
We look forward to working with Sarah and hope you do too.

We also expect to get some great tips on planting spring tulips and pouring the perfect Heineken :)

Welcome as mod Sarah. There is work waiting to be done. Maybe now, Scott and Lighthouse can get some sleep.

Hi guys,
... thank you ... thank you (bowing).

But you're gonna get disappointed, Lighthouse.
I only know anything about cacti and I don't pour beer of any kind! LOL

Apart from that I just bought a house yesterday and will move in 12!!! days (my new job starts 2 days later ...), so this is going to be a crazy fortnight and I also don't know whether my DSL get's transfered as quickly as I do, so if I seem lost you know what happened ...

But don't fear I wíll be back, way too much fun hanging out here:)

@ drifta - when people are surprised at the choices I make or the things I do, I often reply 'I'm not all that female'. I guess this is one of those times again LOL.
(and I'm good at parking my car too)

drifta. Good point. Should Sarah be in the Guinness Book of Records for being the first female moderator? Or are there more out there?

I have seen other fora with female moderators. I think we missed the entry. But I have not seen many women that know how to park their car. Maybe we try it on this basis.

LOL - actually we had a contest in Holland a couple of weeks ago for women to park their car. I didn't like the price so didn't bother to enter:)

And I'm also a mod (but very very recently too and we haven't opened the forum yet, because my friend wanted to wait till my move was all completed) on another forum, but a geek forum? They may be few;-D
So, yes - I was honoured when asked!

@ Scott - seen your email, will reply soon (just keep stuck adding posts here!)
(and I should be packing, not computering ...)

Sarah, congratulations! I remember when you came to us full of questions, but eager to learn. Now the student has become a moderator. I'm so proud! :-)

Guys, we need to stay alert for these women trying to take over. Already we are outnumbered and I suspect they are just waiting to launch a coup d'etat!

Thanks InDiSent & Aleeve:)

@ Aleeve - LH needs to hang on to the coffee a little longer. I'm in the middle of a move and it will be a couple of weeks before I get the time to take a serious look. Just hanging around a bit (in between all the odd jobs that come with moving) for the time being.

The weather is wonderful here today - hope it is great for all of you too!
Have a nice day,

Sarah.
