Oh man, now you're just encouraging me to go back to posting the constant waffle that i used to. I know it's still waffle, but at least it's been less constant for a while.

You've also given away all the secrets. It would have been cool not knowing when we were going to get promoted, but I guess after a while of seeing everyone elses ranks change, it wouldn't have been hard to work out.

Kris, you already changed it... unknowingly! That is why it says "Kris" under your avatar.
To change it click "My Controls" then click "Edit profile information" The very top field it should say "Custom Member Title" and that is where you write in your own title.... you apparently wrote "Kris" in that box.

*The Custom Member title box only appears for members over 4,000 posts.

Sometimes I'm spending too much time on PalmTalk, mostly reading though. I don't see how every one keeps up. I only read a few of the subforums because I just don't have time to get to the others - I can't even read all the ones in the main palm discussion; I just read selectivly depending on the title. At least loading pictures doesn't take as long as in the past, so I should be posting more photos now.

Do you guys ever sleep?

And the weather is beautiful right now, 62F and only 82% humidity (which is low at this temperature) so it feels wonderful outside, all my doors and windows are open. As soon as I finish this cup of coffee, I'll be playing in the yard! When it heats up, I'll come back to the computer to read.

You are having great temperture and humdity (did you bring it back from the Biennal?) - South Florida hit another record high yesterday, we need rain.
