    I see I am almost to my 5100th post, which is what Robin did during his time at the-gauge. Since I can't compare my accomplishments to Robins, I've decided to retire jon-monon from the gauge. I shall never post again as jon-monon or use the name elsewhere.

    Goodbye cruel world!

    Hey john - I think I can change your post count to "0" if you want to start over. :)

    I see your point but it's not the numbers that matter - it's the quality of the posts :D

    Thanks, Don.

    That's the point Mikey, you and me suck compared to Robin, and so does our content.

    C'mon jon, make it 5100! You know you want to.

    Looks like Mikey just posted 5101, making him the highest poster.

    Are you going to take that sitting down???

    Jon-monon. What will you be known now? I am sure going to miss that name.

    60103 Pooh Bah

    Should we start a poll to suggest new names and then vote on them?

    Or start a thread to argue why any of the newbies are Mr. monon?

    (I know where my money's going!)

    ROFL Hint: look at the location :)

    Don't worry, that name will remain in 5099 posts! Probably half are embarassing to re-read :) I have hated that name for years, believe it ir not.

    Goodbye Jon-monon, hello Knudsen! :wave: :wave: :wave:

    Just for a moment I thought you really would bail out... :( :eek: hamr
    But now I'm relieved that you are staying with us, old friend. As others pointed out - it's quality that counts, and there you are among the best. And oh yes, I always enjoyed your humor. I really would have missed it if you had left for good... :cry:

    After all, you always have something to tell, being sort of a cosmopolitan: Being half Danskman (or was it a quarter? :D) while roaming the sugar cane fields of the Philippines... :thumb:

    Here's to the next 5000 posts! aussie

    A noble gesture to be sure - we all remember Robin, and none of us could surpase him. I wonder if there's a way to make the posts counts top off at 5100?

    Anyway - farewell Monon - greetings Knudsen. :D

    announce1 Ladies and Gentlemen,Jon Monon has left the building!

    announce1 Ladies and Gentlemen , Knudsen has enter the building!

    Indeed it is a nice gesture in the remembrance of Robin..

    But would Robin want it that way? I have a gut feeling he would not.
