Devlyn Marie has asked to be allowed to retire after years of service to the community, and I have accepted. After consultation Devyln recommended DawnOday has her replacement. Dawn will be stepping into some big shoes but I expect great things from her!

Congratulations Dawn!  I know you’ll do great!
I hope Devlyn will still be around, she has been so much help for me!

Hugs to both!

Congratulations Devlyn!. I guess Laurie finally wore you down. lol Does this mean you are moving to Florida?

Congratulations Dawn! You are awesome and I know you will be great. Could you discipline me first? What... too eager? lol Do links administrators discipline?

 I don't know if I can approve this  you citified ruffian. Is this a changing of the old guard or something? You best not be starting a trend here. If you are I will hunt you down and smack you good girl. Don't make me do it. Thank you for helping out for so long.

 Welcome to the new position Dawn. Devyl though a short *&%$ wore a pretty big pair of shoes. Thank you for stepping up to fill her spot.

Hugs,
   Laurie

Thanks for stepping up, Dawn. You have a great sense of commitment to the community, that's shown in the work you've already done in the links. Take it to new heights, girl!  :)

Hugs, Devlyn

Devlyn you have been a tower of strength. Thank you.

Welcome Dawn.

Thanks, Cindy. I  don't know how you or anyone else resisted the Tower of Pizza bait. I can't!  :laugh:

Hugs, Devlyn

Thank you all. Devlyn sure did a great job. I hope she will hang around a while to show me the ropes. I guarantee I will make mistakes. One of the great ways to learn. I have been administering and implementing many mainframe projects including the largest multi platform implementation in history, while at Boeing. ERP, CadCam, Purchasing and Non conformance. At least ten since 1969. All require great amounts of research which I love to do. I'm not bragging I just want to let you know I have some experience.
Just a cursory observation when I did a check of links. In the small data sample I made, there were over 100 broken links. I will be checking them out to make sure. I hope to do this  on a regular basis. I will need help and I hope Devlyn's current staff will be willing to work with me to make sure the information we have is up to date and the best resources available. More important is that we expand our research to include the world.

I am so proud to be one of the girls. You rock.

Hugs
Dawn

Congratulations, Dawn.

Devlyn Marie, retirement is a lie. Let's see what you get into next.

Thank you Robyn and Helen. You both have more time in service than I do, and this seems to be a good time to thank you for it. So thanks!

Hugs, Devlyn

Does that mean she's become the Devylator?
