"I am not a crook"

Postby Larry Greenly » Sun Apr 16, 2006 5:16 pm

I went to the grocery store today to buy a sweet potato. When I walked past a woman perusing meat, she reflexively grabbed for her purse. I informed her that I wasn't going to steal it. Geez! Maybe it was my profile on America's Most Wanted.

You should have advised her that you were not for sale :wink:

D'oh! That was me, David. I use that alternate persona for testing - it has no admin or moderator powers, so it lets me see the forums as a regular member would. I also have it set on a very lightweight style (PhpBBLite) which makes it practical to read the forum on my Blackberry, and I actually just grabbed Bucko's post to test that capability. As you see, it worked. If I"m going to use the 'berry to read the forum seriously, though, I'll rename the persona so it doesn't look like some fool using a nick. Er, although I guess that's what it was. ;-)
