but what have you done for us lately?

I have a friend who runs one of these. I had no idea how much work was involved, and as haugy said, GJ makes my world a better place.

Thanks a lot.

Ryan, as a former IT person, I offer my sincere thanks for your efforts; the headaches brought on by site maintenance must be major.

Good response now, well worth the effort on your end. But then for the content here, I don't mind waiting a little.

Thanks Ryan, I would love to be part of the alliance but it is not within my means right now. I do enjoy the site and wouldn't have the insight, knowledge, and experience to draw from anywhere else.

Ryan,

I am so new that I didn't know what the Alliance was until your post prompted me to investigate.

So, because of my appreciation for your efforts and your Boomer Sooner alliance notwithstanding, I will be joining as an Alliance member. Also thanks for moving one of my threads for me.

Yours in good football rivalry and with appreciation for this forum,
