    Hi Rob,

    We got State of the Union, State of the State, and State of the CAC. Well written State of the CAC. Sorry for the sour 2003 but sounds like you're on track for a great 2004.

    I have my own business, got authority & got responsibility for everything - same with you and CAC. It's your baby and to make it what you want it to be you have to exercise your authority.

    I think it's run just fine, keep up the good work!

    Default What's the best nation on Earth? Donation!

    Ask and ye shall receive!

    Rob, I think when I first met you person I had mentioned about setting up a 'donation' type system, and I'm pretty sure that I've expressed my feelings in the forums about having paying members. I know I'm up for it and I'll certainly throw more than just 5 bones.

    Now, as far as your server upgrades... I'm guessing that there may be quite a few people here well entrenched in the computer industry. Why not post a list of things you are looking for regarding the upgrades. I maaaaay be able to help out and get you parts 'donated'. I know I have tons of stuff filling up quite a few rooms. I might have some things that will work (assuming you are running x86 architecture and not Sun or something).

    PS:


    How about an alternative to PayPal? My PayPal got hacked about a year ago & they (PayPal) were not very helpful about fixing my account. See www.paypalsucks.com.

    I'm not bashing them, seems to work for a lot of people, but if you are one of the unfortunate few you are in for a lot of grief. I'll send you a check if you pm or email or post the info on how to make it out, etc. The info I've got from cac members is worth a lot.

    There are also tshirts/window decals/coffee mugs that have a decent markup & are not too difficult to procure.

    In the long run you might consider forming a nonprofit/educational/public service entity for cac. If properly formed & approved the donations would be tax deductible (like PBS) and you & staff draw a regular w2 salary. Just a few thoughts.

    Talk to your local accountant/lawyer.

    SeeYa.

    Default Thank you!

    I've only been a member a short time, but sure have learned a lot in that time. Hope 2004 goes well for you. Know the feeling after having lost my wife to cancer last September.

    You made becoming a supporting member easy, and I hope to volunteer at the meet in May to meet some of the other members.

    Rob,

    Awesome site, keep up the great work. I agree with everything you said. It's sad to me that you should have to explain the obvious to everyone, but that's reality. Anyway, you convinced me to become a supporting member, also. Thanks.

    I think the forum changed a lot last year. Maybe grow is a better term instead of change. But I've been a member here since 2001 and it's really grown and changed. There have been the constant supporters of the forum and I hope that I'm one of them. I certainly don't have much technical knowledge and I'll always ask if I don't know. There were a lot of projects that I undertook last year with some encouragement and guidance from the CAC members here. I went to look at a ZR-1 for Sleepyhead last winter and in the process, got the ride of my life in that ZR-1. To think of it, I didn't do it for Sleepyhead, I did it for myself!

    2003 was a rough year for me personally. No, I didn't lose my job and no one close to me died. But in terms of relationships with other people, it was very rough and I'm glad that dealing with things like that is done with. A lot of members went through rough times last year and it's just a relief to have this big family on the forum to talk to.

    One of the greatest strengths of this forum is that we can talk about anything. We are all human beings first and Corvette enthusiasts second. We all have personal issues and there are a lot of forums that won't let you talk about those issues.

    Kudos to the Forum!

    Hi Rob,
    Finding others who dissagree is enevitable. Having the strenght to follow what you believe (especially when it is correct) show character. That is what permeates thru the entire CAC.
    If I agree, I'm on board. If I dissagree, well I just have to go on.
    The bottom line is that whatever problems you may have had while "being the captain" of the CAC ship, you have not allowed those problems to affect the course of the CAC.
    There are many fine people whose threads, posts and replied I have enjoyed.
    Keep on keeping on, and don't forget to wave.

    I don't post much here, but I just wanted to drop in and say I agree 100% with your decision. It's your forum, your rules and I respect your decision.

    Rob,
    You are a heck of a guy and you have a heck of a site. The people out here have been helpful beyond belief. The credit for that goes back to you. I have had the honor of meeting you. I hope most of the folks here get to the Cruise Fest so they will be able to see for themselves what I am saying.
    I am very sorry about your loss. Please keep your eyes aimed toward the heavens.
    Do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of any assistance whatsoever.
    Save the wave!
