Can I object to this promotion? 



Seconded.

Anyone with as much fascination with Taylor Swift shouldn't be trusted.

Congratulations USS @michaelmurfy!!! Don't spend the huge salary all at once wink

 

Dynamic: Congratulations @michaelmurfy.  Has this promotion exceeded your Wildest Dreams?  Has there perhaps been a bit of bromance Love Story going on behind the scenes that we don't know about?

 

With your new responsibility, I would recommend you just Breathe before you Speak Now and things get any Crazier around here.

 

I really hope you are going into this with your Eyes Open.  If the responsibility becomes too much and you are getting bogged down, just Shake It Off to get yourself Out Of The Woods.  I'm sure it won't leave any Bad Blood if you let @freitasm know that you want to go Back To December.  That decision may leave a Blank Space in your life, and @freitasm may see Red and throw his toys out of the cot, and perhaps even shout I Knew You Were Trouble.  He may even declare that We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together now that Everything Has Changed.

 

Over time he'll almost certainly apologise for being so Mean and ask to Begin Again.  Just accept the apology with Style, mate, and just know All Too Well that this is just a part of the The Story Of Us.

 

You have A Perfectly Good Heart mate, and I'm sure the rest of GeekZone will be behind your appointment!

 

Congratulations again. :) 

 

You Taylored that reply very nicely!

But at least you know you won't get hit with a banhammer, you'll get slapped with a pineapple pizza instead laughing

Wonder what powers come with such designation.

 

 

Having been a mod elsewhere, it's a pretty thankless task, but you do get a banhammer :-)





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

If he brings the Budget Pineapple again I will need to bring out the Vacuvin Pineapple Slicer for him.

@BarTender because you always react I'll always be the provider of the cheapest pineapple I can find, and furthermore I'll rescue people from pineapple-less pizza.

Keep this up and we will have bad blood.

 

Edit: Even John Oliver agrees Pineapple on a pizza is a hate crime: https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/entertainment/video-john-oliver-savages-bill-englishs-tinned-spaghetti-pizza-topping-after-pm-said-he-isnt-very-funny

No you're safe for now. You were a great help just recently :)

Mikrotiks are a little harder for me to do configuration for since the last Mikrotik I had I gave away on GZ and thus I think that @hio77 (the chap who won it) owns the Mikrotik space now. I'll continue to help with Ubiquiti gear until I personally stop using them for some reason.
