A letter from Titan................

Oct 2, 1998
I received this letter from Titan and I am posting it with permission. Of course he said I had to post my reponse to him. It was to Sal and a CC to me.

Thanks for your kind words. I now this may sound corny too but I grew up
poor, very poor. I am so pleased to be able to give something back to the
community which has helped me to become a success. The forums have become
my social activity. I have very few friends because I work so much and the
friends I have made on-line in the forums are very dear to me. I feel that
the community I have helped to create is one of the few things I will
cherish most when I finally retire. I am only 32 now so that will be a
while. I am not sure what the forums will be a few years from now but all I
know is that you guys make what I am doing worth while. Thanks again and I
am glad your surprise will bring you so much joy.

Best Regards,
Mike Turber

PS can I post your letter in the forums?


You can post my letter IF you post your response. (-:

I really salute you for giving birth to BladeForums.com !!!

If and when I get the chance to visit the US I will surely want to "eyeball" you and a number of my co-forumites...

I, too, am not sure if this good thing (BF) will last -- but right now Its one hell of a ride! (pardon my French ;-) ) --- and I will keep on posting as long as there is an Internet access I can log on to!

Keep up the good work and more power!

Jessan, aka Titan

Do it! Do it right! Do it right NOW!

It's this kind of stuff that makes me feel at home here. Thanks, guys.



Here I am trying to hate the lucky guys who won. Well, next to me, I guess I'd as soon Titan had it as anyone.
Use it in health and prosperity, Titan.

Doggone, now you got me all choked up!
Sounds as though this knife really went to the right person. Good for you Titan, I know you'll enjoy being a "Military Man". Welcome to the club !
Now I know why I didn't win!

Way to go you 3 (Titan, Mike,& Sal)Also,
maybe Danelle helped provide the piece?

Damn karma--Titan's all nice and grateful so he wins a knife, whereas I run ONE busload of nuns off ONE country road and . . . . .

But I've said too much. Congrats again Titan.

Everyone sing with me...

Kumbaya, oh lord, kumbayaaaaaaa...


Course you know what this means...you will never be satisfied with a $40 budget knife again.
