Rezonate’s 1000th post

    Those who’ve been around for a while remember celebrating post number milestones. We still judge number of posts as an outward sign of commitment to the community, a credibility score. The cut of your clothes, so to speak. So indulge me this thread as I pass the 1000 milestone.

    The members of this board bring many powerful skills to the table. As we discovered over the weekend, those skills extend to golf, good conversation and tall tales. It is gratifying to see a community built by a common interest suddenly spring beyond the historical boundaries to spawn new websites and connections. My contributions are more as a technologist than a market maven. I invest for the long haul. But as a strong intuitive, I see patterns in the data, the ebb and flow of rumor, press release and post. Getting to 1000 has taken a while because I watch and ponder, and only chime in with a potentially useful nugget of distilled thought.

    Over the last six years I’ve been the recipient of private words of encouragement as my wife battled her ongoing medical condition. We’ve gone from complete strangers to people I’m proud to call friends. In return I promise to continue adding value to the community, in whatever small way I can. There are real people at work behind these obscure little posts on a random message board. I’m thankful for you all.

    And now, since I’ve finally crossed the 1000 milestone, time for AAPL to shape up and do the same!  See y’all around the boards.

    I love how the system had me sitting at 999 posts for days, and now says 998. Must have been post manipulation! Or a broker’s fee. smile
