This site, all of its fantastic mods, and members have been invaluable to me, and very entertaining as well.
I only hope that I can some how give back a fraction of what it has given me.

Please don't put out any commercials with obviously paid celebrities acting like they really care that you've been around for 15, er.. 8 years. :D

This is the only site I check repeatedly throughout the day, even when I'm swamped at work.

Thanks for the great site!
Go Hoos!

This IS a Birthday worth celebrating! I'm thankful every day that I found this "little" family to visit with and learn from!

Thanks, Chris, and all the rest who helped build this place into my favorite place.

My wonderful cat, Kawie, passed away on 11/23/08. He had a remarkable soul, and I miss him deeply. Thank you, my buddy, for sharing your life with me.

While I'm not the most prolific of posters I have been around these parts for quite awhile and witnessed just a few changes. This forum is an incredible resource to us all and very much appreciated!

Happy Birthday DBSTalk.com! :hb:

I know I already said "Happy Birthday" up above, but I couldn't think of a better way to add +1 to my post count than expanding on what this site means to me. It's not often you can find an online forum of enthusiasts or hobbyists where you have a true sense of community, and that's what I feel here at DBSTalk. This site is full of smart, funny, warm people, where we don't tear others down, but try to help out in any way we can. Where we let debates rage but don't cross boundaries of civility. Where I can get breaking news on all things satellite, be a part of the innovative testing program this site created with DIRECTV, join in lively discussion of TV shows, and even laugh at some Off Toipic funnies. DBSTalk is my online home away from home and I'm grateful to be a small contributor. Once gain, Happy Birthday DBSTalk!

Its has been a wild ride with lots of and ups and downs. Lots of changes over the years. Lots of name calling and bickering on just about every topic imaginable. Sounds like a typical American family. I for one am glad to be a member!

Happy B-day DBSTalk.
