Been here almost 8 of those years, and have seen a lot blossom here.

P.S. Nice logo.

I've been lucky to be along for the ride since 2004, and after lurking for two years I finally joined. Thanks for all the fun along the way!

Happy Birthday, DBSTalk! Congrats, Chris and all the mods on a job extremely well done.
I just looked at some of the user numbers and was astonished at the growth rate of the board.
At times, it has exceeded 1,000 users per month!

Happy 11 years of satellite education. I've learned a lot here, I hope to learn a lot more.
I'm sure DBStalk has been responsible for preventing new satellite users from jumping to cable by providing this great educational forum
Thanks to Google search, people can appear to be smarter than they really are.

Eleven, huh? Puberty is going to hit soon. We think this place can be unruly now. Just wait until the hormones start flowing. This joint will be sullen, withdrawn and uncommunicative. DBSTalk will often be lashing out in anger and without thinking things through, all while swearing like a sailor. And the zits! This site will turn darn ugly.

I thought we didn't allow Happy Birthday threads anymore?








But Happy Birthday DBS
