    This place is choice. Happy Anniversary PA, PAS, and Capture. Just realized I forgot to say all that.

    It’s a wonderful, wonderful place. Thank you to everyone who has made it what it is!

    No, thank you!

    One of the nicest things about meeting the many contributors here is now when I read those wonderful words, I can hear your voices saying them.

    The OGBs, and other offline gatherings have made this a much more tangible place. Thanks for all the efforts there, and exemplary hosting abilities too Russell (and others).

    And then when PA System came along, the discussions became broader and noisier and funnier and more controversial and social and different and exciting and always educational. So much discussion!

    Noisy, funny, controversial, social, different, exciting, educational - says it all and says it for me. Congratulations RB and all.

    Bruce Russell’s great Time to Go compilation.

    Must check that one out.

    Must check that one out.

    It's a well-conceived, non-obvious compilation from the era and Bruce's sleeve notes are excellent. Also ... Janine from the Playthings. God, we used think she was alright.

    You can buy it directly from Flying Nun.

    Indeed, and as someone who reads more than posts, I'm often impressed by the quality of writing here. Long may it continue- and here's to meeting more of you in person.

    Russell -- I'd also like to add my belated congrats to the long list of well-wishers. It's always a pleasure to read your posts, and even more to chat when we get to see each other in Wellington. All power to your pixels :)

    Thanks. You should have seen me on a good day ;) I received a job offer from a PAS member a couple of years ago, which I didn't take as I thought it wasn't on my career path... whatever that is! I still don't know if that was the right decision, but I'm extremely grateful all the same.

    This is a social web.

    Late to the game but congrats and thank you. This is still one of the most civilized places on the net, and that means a lot.

    Later still, but congrats on the milestone Russell - this is a valuable thing you do here, providing a virtual salon. Here's to another 10 years.

    I miss having free time to read, let alone post things!

  • Michael PlaysBass,

    Another lurker materialises to congratulate RB et al on all their excellent work over the last 10 years. Viva Public Address!

    Been lurking since the start of PA, and before that listened to Hard News on bFM. Cheers Russell, especially for sharing so much of your time and your life with us. And respect to the responders for responses which are so often amusing, enlightened, and passionate.

    We hope to make it along to one of the events, but have a new baby due any day now, so other priorities...

    A special appreciation for the posts & responses re the Chch quakes - family we have there have been doing it hard - one of my bro's is living in his house with gaps in ceiling & wall, asbestos, mould etc, and no end in sight.

    First post complete, now it's back to the safety of lurkerland.

  • slarty,

    Nice work.

    Thank you all for the stimulation over the years... for me my lurk-quotient has fluctuated depending on the sensitivity of my day job :p
