...never dreamed that I would go from 177 to 500 in about a year. But I met 707cmf since, and I was helped by Johan taking vacations when I was in bordercase  Laugh out loud
Anyway, hope to get to 1000 soon !

Wow... congrats William.
I was a bit shocked yesterday when I realised how many pages you had after the >>

Okay, now, I'm off to my upload base... (283 for the moment, and I want to reach 300 before next week !)

Congratulations from me, too...

I can remember how happy I felt when I reached the 100 or even the 500 mark... Now I'm looking for the 1500 mark  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Oh vieille pute,

I just remembered, you said that when you reach 500 pics in the database, you would remove all of your ventilator pictures...

Ready to do it (and have GAT removed from the dropdown list as well...) ?

Technically, I never reached 500 since I went from 498 to 504  Laugh out loud, if I had reached a perfect 500 I would have done it (not de mauvaise foi at all).

Your punishment will be not to have any shot of the brand new Guichonair Piaggio that just arrived at CMF... (not that you care at all)

Tut, tut!  Sad

Talk about another plug-fest...! Soon, some of those pictures will have appeared in this forum as frequently as a certain notorious Peter Max 777 picture!  Nuts

Anyway, 500 pictures isn't an approved "self-congratulation" level - self congratulation is only allowed at 1 picture, 1000 pictures, and at 1,000,000 hits. Big grin

Thanks to everyone and a special acknowledgement to 707cmf, if I hadn't met him, I would never have bought a digital camera (I was scanning my 35mm slides with a nasty scanner before that) and I would never have spent 80% of my time uploading like a motherf....
I also wish to acknowledge my employers for paying me good money while having nothing else to do but modify pics, upload pics then plug them on the forums; as well as providing me one computer for modyfying AND another one for uploading at the same time (as well as a 200MB/s LAN connection).
At 510 in early August...maybe 1000 for Christmas  Big thumbs up

special acknowledgement to 707cmf

you're welcome, and it is reciproque. If I hadn't met you, I would be barely over 100 after one year, while a close to 300 ( and the >>> )

At 510 in early August...maybe 1000 for Christmas

Just remember... you're in DUB now  Laugh out loud And unlike you, I am not an ex-CMF spotter  Wink/being sarcastic
