The Tom Stormcrowe appreciation thread

So, my laptop dumps on me right before going to Japan so I don't have the right stuff (or ability, or talent, or.......eh, take your pick) to shrink down a photo for my avatar. Tom offered to do it for me and make me a new one.
Thanks TS !

I once seriously freaked out on everyone on a certain bikeforum, it got so crazy that I begged/dared for the mods to boot me off, all while using more than a few "colorful medifores" on everyone! Including the mods! Long story short I got the boot Mr. Stormcrowe was the guy that emailed me with the offer of returning when I "felt better." So here I am today with a huge public "Thanks again!" to Mr Stormcrowe Ill also take this time to thank two others that have helped me thru rough times. Sui, EastHill, I ain't got nothin' but love for you honeys

I don't have a specific story to share...but I also appreciate Mr. Stormcrowe.

You are a man to be admired sir, and my best wishes on your full recovery. You are an inspiration to all you touch...and you touch more than you know.

Tom is letting me do an otherwise unliked survey for my business idea. It's great that he's letting me do this as it means a lot to me and the idea.

Daddy Stormcrowe was there for me when I was going through my cancer scare..... He offered to be with me when times were tough and Mom Stormcrowe was there for me too. They kept their door open should I ever need to talk or to cry. Thanks for being there.

((hugs))

Anyone who can keep a massive forum site up such as BF deserves praise in my book. It takes a lot of time dealing with the backend mechanics (especially database level) with a high traffic site. Especially dealing with the latest zero day attacks and whatnot.

Having been a sysadmin for a long time, it takes one to know how much time another has to put in to keeping such a large volume site in good working order.

Mr. Stormcrowe is one of the people that make this site worth visiting.

There are others, but this thread is about Tom, so I won't start a list.

Thanks for being who you are Tom!!!!
