She's a year up, so she has to repeat Year 8 (that's the final year before moving to senior school, without the repeat year she would be too young to go to senior school).

So, next year will be her first Year 8, and everyone else in her class will leave at the end of the summer, and they will spend the summer term doing exams, and then "having a good time" (they go off on Outward bound and that sort of stuff), so it will be a bit of a dead term for her if she stays, so her headmaster suggested she did a term with this lot in France to boost her French.

Wish I had had an opportunity like that when I was young!

Alright Brain, you don't like me, and I don't like you. But lets just do this, and I can get back to killing you with beer.

I think its like the "Have a nice day" thing in USA.

It took me while to realise that the restaurant folk were genuine in meaning it, and I'll tell you what ... if you are anything like me start putting "Welcome to SQLTeam" at the top of your posts and after a dozen or so you'll feel it with sincerity too - weird!

Yup, far more inuslar than, say, a little island like GB

Looks like the Kristen-Virus is catching:

http://www.sqlteam.com/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=53167

"MySQL? P155 off" translated to "your further posting about MS sql server here is welcomed" plus 1 x "have a nice day"

Breath in ... Smell the Happy Customers ....

Hang on ... I've just got to read Chapter 2 in "Brainwashing for Dummies"

Damn, I can't read Chapter 2 fast enough. Look what's happened without my careful mentoring of the flock:

Spirit: "have you read my post? is there a reason you still want a clustered index?"

;-)

I am a bit new to here, but I do lurk once in a while. Blame Brett for that, if need be ;-). I am more of a poster on DBForums.com (can I say that out loud here?), due to the fact that I have to babysit a Sybase system, and a couple of Oracle ones. We have seen a fair downturn in activity over the summer that may be related to the summer vacation schedule. I believe Thrasymachus has brought that topic up before.

Anyway, since it seems you are going to redesign the forum in some part, there is one request that I would like to make. I don't see how to keep track of what threads I have posted to in this forum. Over on DBForums, the icon for the thread will change, after you post, so you can look back for where you are expecting answers, thank-yous, etc.. This might be available here, but I have not seen it as yet. Does anyone else find that useful?

Also, instead of a 1,000 post club, would it make more sense for the owners of the forum to pick and choose the better seeming posters for a similar "honor"? I hear the SQL MVP program is mostly along those lines.

"keep track of what threads I have posted to in this forum"

I use the ACTIVE TOPICS link. Any thread [topic] that I have posted in is boldfaced.

Some people set this to refresh every few minutes, others press the "Mark all topics as read" ICON to freshen the list manually after they've read it.

For posts that people did NOT say Thank You to and you want to chase them up you can see your recent posts by folloowing a link from your profile - click on your handle in the left column above, and then navigate from there


"I hear the SQL MVP program is mostly along those lines"

I reckon the owners already have that - they bestow personalised titles to frequent posters. These are a quick and ready indicator to our readers and usfully indicate our skills - varying from "Almighty SQL Goddess" to "TEST"

Please please please ... the 1,000 poster club was a joke. I would hate to see "Star contributor of the month" awards or anything vaguely like that on here. Or elections for the Moderators. Dictatorship of SQLTeam is just fine by me - the Dictators can impliment any ideas they have, whether their own or not :)

Thanks, Kristen. Guess I should get in the habit of just clicking around and seeing what stuff does ;-).
