This subforum did not exist when I joined, and I have been a little slow in introducing myself as a result, so figured it would be appropriate to make my 30000'th post one that explains a little bit about me.

I have always had an interest in planes, radio communications and computers. I have been lucky to have spent most of my working life in fields that matched those interests, including Search and Rescue, Air Traffic Control as well as working for one of the biggest names in IT.

I have lived in quite a few places across Australia including Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane and thanks to having roles in the last twenty years that involved travel, can hop in a car and navigate without a map at many Australian cities.

I am still an avgeek at heart and enjoy following the developments in the industry. I am active on other forums both in the IT/Telco space and travel/frequent flyer.

Since joining I have seen the forum grow exponentially in terms of its members and the topics being discussed, to the point where it is impossible to be across all the opportunities on offer. Without AFF, many of those opportunities would have been ships sailing by in the dark for me. So while this post is about me introducing myself, it is really me also saying thank you to all that have contributed to this forum for the time I have been here. Thank you, your contributions have been appreciated whether it's been one post or thousands.

Guess I'm a bit late saying Welcome to AFF markis10 :oops:

However, may I be amongst the first to congratulate you on achieving 30,000 posts. That is some milestone right there.

I would also like to thank you for your contribution to AFF and am sure that many of us, myself included, have learnt a ship load from you. Hope you continue posting and passing on your knowledge.

So with 30,000 + posts, what have been the highlights of your quest with AFF?

Plenty, but probably the look on my bosses face when I guested him into the J lounge would stand out, along with the subsequent question "how can you be Platinum, I fly more than you?"

Did he become a member of AFF after this?

Belated welcome to AFFmarkis10!

At least it wasn't your first post 10 years down the track.
