    Here i am... i'm not at home this weekend (not that it matters, i don't have access to the internet on the weekends, anyway) but i'll be home tomorrow night - will hopefully have part IV up by tomorrow or Tuesday, the latest... i apologize for the delay... Dan, this should be my first post but i already put in a request to have all my information moved from the old board to this one... i'll be back in place in no time... :)

    DES!!! Welcome.

    In due time I'll get DesChat back and I would like to post all your stories on it's own page. I think I'll create an Articles section.

    LOL, Rob, i'm not even sure what that means...

    Rob, an articles page would be awesome... i need to get started on Part IV but this weekend has been one thing after another and i haven't had a chance to sit down and write. New board is somewhat confusing but looks great... Bit thanks to you for making this "hobby" a full-time priority; i'm sure i speak for others as well, when i say that i'd go nuts without FerrariChat... :)

    Oh, ok, i got it now, thanks... Things have been really hectic here in the office and my nights have been busy, too, thus keeping Part IV on hold; it's started, just not finished... i hope to finish it tonight and post it tomorrow morning... That's if anyone even remembers the whole thing, since it's been so long since i've last posted...

    i miss FerrariChat... i need to get the government to pay me to be on here all damn day long... :)

    Maybe you could find a wealthy Ferrari enthusiast who is too busy to keep current on Fchat. He (or She) could hire you to be a personal Fchat assistant. Your entire day could be devoted to Fchat, you could print out posts your employer might find interesting and maybe type up new posts.

    You could also try getting a kickback from the hosting company

    :)

    Mark, are you hiring...? Know anyone that is...? Where's James Glickenhaus...? i need to know how the current job market is doing and when it will become an employee's market, rather than an employer's market and (takes a breath) lastly, i need to know if anyone out there is looking to hire a car enthusiast...? How does one go about securing such a position...? i don't ever recall hearing it come up on career day back in elementary school... Hmmm...

    I would suggest writing a letter to Bill Gates outlining the services you offer. Let him know that you understand he is a car enthusiast but the demands of running Microsoft leave him little time for internet forums. Explain that the world's wealthiest man should enjoy some of the finer things in life like being the #1 poster at Fchat. Tell him a bit about your posting experience, how you made 6000 posts in less than a year. If all else fails tell him Larry Ellison is alread an F1 rookie.

    Totally off topic but I thought this might amuse you. My brother is at the SEMA show in Vegas this week and just called me. He says "You want to be jealous?" "I'm standing a foot away from a red Enzo looking at the engine"... What a little punk. He is taking pictures, I will scan them when he gets back.

    LMAO...! Augustine, i'm REALLY handy with a bucket and soap depending on how handy you are with $40,000 a year...

    Mark, that sounds awesome, tell him to take horDES of pictures, then post them, then email them to me so i can post them again... :) Give me a call some time soon - you still have my number even though your phone bit the big one, right...?

    DES,
    What's up ASSNIPPLES!!!!!!! Where the hell have you been. Stay away from the White Zinfandel and get back down here. Better yet I'm getting the hell out of the south and heading up there. I'm still in a daze from the "adventure". Nobody believes my stories so I just quit telling them and showed everyone my pics. I was going to download them but now we can only do them one at a time so I'll have to wait till the boss is gone. I still got the pics to support the upcoming episode. Just waiting on you bud.

    CEO of Oracle which, I believe, is the world's second largest software company. Larry lives a little higher profile life racing sailboats and doing other cool stuff. There used to be a good bit of rivalry between Oracle and Microsoft but I don't know if that is still the case.

    I just called you and left a message, will try you again in a while.
