    Imagine what could happen with the 25000 members -- maybe Bill Gates could come over to win a free copy of his Longhorn if he would put some licenses in the contest?
    Just joking, but we could with this top notch multi-lingual supported security forum at least have grabbed his attention while helping so many people with their systems!

    I'll drop A Microsoft staff member an email as soon as we come close to 25,000 registered members.

    regards.

    Let's calculate, with the current new members/day rate we'll be on 10000 around half march 2004, so that could be in 3 years on 25000 hmm think people would rather like the next generation after Longhorn by then :)
    But help us reminding you to send that email, if BG would be in the contest and it would be announced we could be on 25000 before next christmas this year.

    Ok Detox. Uhhumm---

    I'm sorry, so sorry,
    That you can't win anything now.
    Bet it makes you feel,
    Like you're having a cow.
    Oh, Oh. Oh. Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh yeah.

    You just now realized,
    That you can never win a prize.
    So you'll have to dream,
    Just sit back and close your eyes.

    Since I'm a Moderator,
    I can't get no sleep.
    I go to bed even later,
    And I hate counting sheep.
    Sheep being chased by wolves,
    That really scares me.
    I feel their running hoofs,
    As they trample on me.

    I'm sorry, So sorry,
    There is no need to cry.
    For in your dreams you'll see,
    Cookies in your eyes.
    Oh. Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, yeah.

    Wolves like cookies, sheep do to,
    Feed them and maybe they, won't trample on you.
    Now it's time for bed,
    Seeing that it's almost 2.

    Since I'm a Moderator,
    I can't get no sleep.
    The wolves are now chasing me,
    Instead of the sheep.
    I fed them my cookies,
    Used up my supply.
    Now the wolves look at me,
    Like I'm a french fry.

    I'm sorry, so sorry,
    But I must leave now really fast.
    The wolves want a meal and,
    I don't want to be their last.
    Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, No!

    I fed them the cookies, the wolves and the sheep,
    I thought then I might, catch some more sleep.
    The wolves eyes are red,
    And I've got cookies in my bed.

    Since I'm a Moderator,
    I can't get no sleep.
    I'm tired of feeding,
    The wolves and the sheep.
    I gave them my cookies,
    For something to eat.
    Now the wolves look at me,
    Like I'm their next meat.

    I'm sorry, so sorry,
    Please help me to get some sleep.
    For just a few cookies,
    I'll give you my wolves and sheep.

    Just remember to feed them!!! :D ;) Oh, and don't forget to feed Detox to!! :D :D

    is like the virus not caught ;)
    only how to hack all prize
    is in his deep thought
    but sorry again for mod
    the cookie in his eyes
    as beetle pointed out...
    the weakness there lies
    so mr mod from now on
    come on be more trojanic
    and it will be hard for others
    to throw you from peak :D
    ooh oops ooh no..
    i am telling you mr beetle juice
    to be or not to be a MOD
    its really hard to choose
    no... i am busy with my anti-cookies
    so you all think about the choice
    once done and finalised
    i will be here to rejoice :D :D :D :D :D

    Oh man, you misunderstand,
    I was trying to make him feel better.
    I gave him a cookie at the end,
    To dunk in his milk and make wetter.

    Please don't take his cookies away,
    with your anti-cookie machine.
    Cause then he'll have nothing to feed the wolves,
    And we'll have a mess to clean. :'(

    He probably wouldn't mind if you got the cookies out of his bed though. :D :D :D

    Sorry about your troubles, Detox. :oops:
    But seriously, I think you are doing a great job here. So while you cannot win a prize, you can win some freshly baked karma cookies from me. :D
