I wonder if SK will get to 10,000 posts today. :o

I bet he does by the end of the day! I have enjoyed SK's posts for the time that I have been here. Keep on posting man!

Thanks RE. 8)

It took a little longer than expected but this is post 10,000, here on the board.  :o

It's quite scary isn't it. I suppose in all those posts, there hasn't been much ground breaking stuff from me. A lot of fluff and not much substance.

I was trying to think of something profound to post on this momentous occasion but I've got nothing. I thought about thanking certain people who I've met here on the board and become great friends, but I'm bound to miss a few names with my memory and I don't want to do that and embarrass myself by missing someone.

It's been quite a ride for the last 6 years. Joining in April '04 and being very wary early on I didn't post much but after about six months I was hooked on this site. I couldn't go to work of a morning without checking the board. I still can't. That's how much I love the site and the people here.

It's been mentioned so many times before that we're like a family. The couple of dozen regulars we have that pop in just about everyday. We don't always agree on things but we do have a lot of laughs and some serious discussions from time to time as well.

I've had some tough days this year personally and I don't want to bore everyone with my problems but coming on here each day is sort of an escape from all that. I don't know what I'd do if this board wasn't here.

The movie nights each month are probably the highlight for me on the board. I'm so glad that we have these regularly now. There were a couple of lean years there where we hardly had any. Just the thought of a bunch of us from around the world watching a film at the same time, I think is great and quite unique to forums on the net. I enjoy putting them together and seeing you all show up on the night/day.


Anyway here is the post that started it all way back when:

Greetings from down under,I'm new here,I have been a Clint fan all my life.Any other Aussies around?Any news on the new boxing movie from Clint apart from what is shown at IMDB.com?
 ;)

And KC's reply

Hi, tgy*, and welcome! I'm sure you'll hear the same from several of your countrymen who are members here before long.  8)

Not much is known about the new movie yet, but see this thread in the News forum where we discussed it a bit (and "speculated" a bit, as is the wont of some of us!) ;)

http://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=2247

*For those unaware, tgy was my former username here on the board, before I changed it to something more Clint related.

Here's to the next 10,000.

Well I'm glad it's a day off for me to see SK's 10,000th post. You've been a great friend and I hope can still bug you for the next 10,000 posts. Did I say bug, I meant chat. ;)

Your input on the forums has been invaluable to say the least. O0

Cheers to you mate.

I've always enjoyed SK posts (well, except the ones talking about golf >:D)
You are a great mod who brings a lot of fan and do a very competent job organizing those movie nights.
Congrats on hitting 10000 posts! O0

 " Men in black are the white knights of the night "   :o

He looked like an easy target: a medical student sitting alone on a late-night train.

The three men sidled up to the German student and told him to hand over his wallet. When he refused, they followed him off the train, trailing him as he walked past the hotel and pizza joint on Bringelly Road, Kingswood, in the city's west.When the student, who has asked not to be identified, turned down a dimly lit alley his pursuers thought their moment had come.

It had, but not in quite the way they expected.

The men tripped the 27-year-old student, kicking him as he lay on the ground and grabbing his mobile phone and iPod.

What the assailants did not realise was that they were standing outside Ninja Senshi Ryu - western Sydney's ninja warrior school.

They also failed to notice a ninja, Nathan Smith, standing in the shadows outside the dojo. Mr Smith immediately alerted his sensei, or teacher.

Kaylan Soto, a sensei with 30 years' Ninjutsu training, and three of his students raced out of the dojo towards the startled attackers. All five crusaders were clad in the ninja's traditional, all black uniform.

''We would have been just a silhouette,'' one of the ninjas, Steve Ashley, said. ''It was probably the worst place in Sydney where they could have taken him.''

Mr Soto said it took the three assailants a few moments to realise what was going on. When they did, they shot off. ''You should have seen their faces when they saw us in ninja gear coming towards them,'' he said.

The ninjas gave chase, but the men escaped. Police yesterday said they had made arrests in relation to the attack.

The medical student, who has been in Sydney for eight weeks on an exchange program, was left shaken but suffered only minor injuries.

As for the ninjas, they were back in training last night.

Looks like KC will hit 20,000 post by the end of the month. Maybe on Clint's birthday during the movie night would seem appropiate. 8)
