    @0BradyM0Bondfanatic7, I loved that picture! It's funny how "nostalgic" it feels seeing that exact image after such a long time, when it was such a part of my profile on here for many years.

    And same goes to you, always. Been a pleasure getting to know you and several others so well over the years and engage in some incredibly fruitful conversations and excitement as the new releases have gotten closer and closer. We joined around the time SF pre-production was gearing up and now we're here awaiting a new actor's turn. It's amazing.

    @Creasy47, that's part of why I've always been reluctant to change my profile picture. I feel like it's just synonymous with me now, and it would feel weird even to me to see a post of mine on the forum, glance to the left and not see the golden Connery avatar. At this point in my life I would feel motivated to have one depicting Craig instead, as he has truly become my favorite interpretation, but something would just feel so wrong about that, even if it felt right.

    So that’s why I am surrounded by nurses and people in straightjackets. 😮
    We were wondering when you'd finally notice them. Early on you seemed to think the nurses were all burlesque dances and the people in straightjackets were bouncers, which certainly says a lot about where your head was at at that time. Both heads, actually...

    They aren't Burlesque dancers? but.... they do dance.....


    Congrats on your



    years on these boards! Time flies when you're hanging about.

    tbh the only thing I don't like about your posts is their sensible, well thought-out and balanced views. How am I supposed to come over as intelligent now? ;-)

    It's been an honour hanging about with you my friend!

    Does a 0th birthday count too? If so, I'm happy to announce that my son Gabriel was born on Monday, October 24. He is our first child. My wife and I are blessed with a beautiful boy.

    Don't worry, I'll fervently home-school the little lad in all matters Bond. :)>-

    @DarthDimi, I wholeheartedly congratulate on this. I myself, alas, don't have any children, though I'm not devastated by that. But I'm sure this will be great. Plus he's an early Scorpio, and while I'm not superstitious (I'm certain it brings bad luck), early Scorpios are the greatest persons on earth. My own birthday is tomorrow, by the way :-)

    You are right; superstition brings bad luck. 😄 And thank you. Gabriel is beautiful.

    Meanwhile, congrats in advance, sir. I hope you have a great B-day tomorrow.

    Thanks for lot, fellas. We are proud to finally have a complete family. Nothing could have prepared me for the happiness that comes with a child.

    I was going to make a cheeky comment, but just can't do it. Sincere congratulations, @DarthDimi, on what you've helped bring into the world. From knowing you all these years, I am assured you are prepared for this big step and change in your life, and more importantly than anything else, that you will be a magnificent father. They say that when you have a kid, your life ends as theirs begins. In a sense, what you were living for before and what you are living for afterward changes, because your life isn't just about looking out for yourself anymore. Now you've got a little thing you must raise to bloom into their own man/woman, and that's a high stakes game for certain. But I know you and your special lady have what it takes, and your intellect and teaching background will serve you well in navigating these uncharted waters with tact and enthusiasm.

    Just make sure the kid never gets an account on here. Can't give it more than a few days before he'd be tainted by the wild minds of some of the forums more passionate degenerates. ;-)

    So today marks my tenth anniversary of joining MI6 Community back on 11 December 2012. I'm so glad that I joined up and have really enjoyed discussing all things Bond and otherwise with you all over the last decade. Thanks to all for making it such an enjoyable online home. Hopefully I'll be able to stick around for a while yet. :)

    Happy anniversary, @Dragonpol! Ten years is a long time. This forum wouldn't be what it is without you.

    @Dragonpol Happy Anniversary, frieund! You are one of the good ones, amongst many. I would send you flowers, but I'm under the impression you're allergic to pollen.

    Happy 10th anniversary @Dragonpol. The forum would be worse off without you flying the flag for the Gardner books.
