Looks like due to the time zone thingy it's my privilege (ahem) to
wish you an absolute ripper old chap ...:D
Have a great day all the best for the rest of the year too:friday
Hehehe - thanks guys!

I'm taking it easy today but have a bit of a :friday this weekend with a few friends.

I'll try not to get into any :ko

My congrats as well.
Thank you for this great forum.
We've developed and evolved this forum with your help in to a great community with hearth, skill and humor.
Keep up the good work.

Happy Birthday Stephen.
I see you are only 24!
You must have still been wet behind the ears when you started DB. congrats, i think that this is an exceptional achievement.

enjoy it

happy birthday stephan,

would you care to enlighten us on how old(young) you were when you started deeperblue>?

besides that, just remember the :friday numbs the senses, so if you do get in any :ko , you wont feel much until it wears off, at the bar you could always try and pick up the ladies... but if to much :friday is consumed, then :chatup might happen.

have a happy birthday

Hehehehe - thanks for the advice...i've had plenty of :friday, :ko and mostly :chatup during my short life.

DB was officially started in March 1998 off some free webspace on my ISP account. However Cliff had been running his Freediving site since October 1996 so we have content going back that far.

It's come a long way since then!
back when I was an imbibing sort, the old Swedish Birthday/drinking song went..."Here's to you and here's to me, and if we should ever disagree, then heres to me and *#^@ you.

I hope to continue wishing you the former for a long time.

24?! christ... :head
