Wow !!! He’s got the Power! Congrats on the 40 k!
I’ve learned a lot from you! Thanks! I still smile when I think of you saying you wrote a “short grease monkey script”. I had no idea what that was. A play? an exercise routine? a song? a car service manual? Not a clue!
Thanks to you, now I get it. (It’s a recipe for disaster.)

Aint no question about it, he is up there at the top! We bow down to that 40K greatness and only dream of ever reaching there! Well done and here’s to the next 40!!!!!
Bring out the champagne!

Congratulations sir!! Well earned indeed.

He was working on it the other day. I gave him lurve but I had maxed out ages ago. I am pleased you have made it. Congrats to you, my main Mac man!

C’mon over for some pizza and PBR! And I’ll invite that Allie chick too.

This site just wouldn’t be Fluther without you. Congrats on the big Four-oh. You give out so much helpful advice. I don’t think we could live without you around.

You are terrific.

Definitely one of my favorite Jellies around. No homo. Always helpful!

Very deserved, well done mate!!

jrpowell's avatar

If you had told me five years ago that I would make it this far without being banned I wouldn’t have believed you.

<—————Bows down to a Fluther original! Congratulations, @johnpowell! Keep on representin’ for the Northwest.

wundayatta's avatar

Congratulations, John. We’d miss you greatly if you had been banned. But you haven’t. So keep on giving us that no-nonsense wisdom of yours!

bookish1's avatar

Congratulations @johnpowell ! I’m glad for your presence here.

Coloma's avatar

Whoa! Get down with yo’ bad self!
Congrats @johnpowell!

burntbonez's avatar

Congratulations, sir. I can not imagine how anyone could get that much lurve. You must be an awesome person!

jrpowell's avatar

@burntbonez :: I’m a horrible person. The secret to amassing massive amounts of Lurve is unemployment.

jrpowell's avatar

and alcoholism….

Mama_Cakes's avatar

Glad that you’ve stuck around. Congrats!

mazingerz88's avatar

Well, at least I’m not that late crashing this party! I come bearing gifts. 200 barrels of beer, each of them with a dancing Victoria’s Secret model on top, wearing bikinis designed by Apple. ( Not Victoria’s Secret. Yeah. That’s right. Apple designed bikinis. )

Hey, JP. Good work on not getting banned and all the other reasons for lurve. Congrats!

“I’m just here to wind the eggheads up!”
I remember being thoroughly chastised by “johnny-boy” for that off the record remark, deservedly so…......well done old bean :¬)

Judi's avatar

One of my favorite Oragonians. Stay dry friend.
I wish I understood half (even a quarter) of what you do about computers. I admire your selflessness in helping people figure out their computer issues (as long as they’re not ass holes. )
I am especially impressed that you made 40K since it seems you haven’t been around as much lately. It shows that the quality of your answers are always “great” and appreciated by a diverse group of jellies.

ETpro's avatar

40,000 Lurves in one place, and we still don’t know exactly what a Lurve is or how anyone in their right mind can gather that many. Congratulations from a fellow nutcase gathering Lurves, albeit far less successfully.

Judi's avatar

Crap. It’s to late to edit and it looks like I spelt Oregonian wrong! What does that word I put up there mean? Spell check didn’t grab it!

I almost missed this party. Is there any punch left? Congratulations, John. Now maybe they’ll give you the key to the back door of the mansion, so you can sneak in at night.

I’m almost late, but sincere congratulations to a one of a kind guy.
I’m really glad you never got banned and have hung around for all these years.

Jeruba's avatar

You’ve joined a select company, now numbering only six. Congratulations, and thank you for sharing your knowledge so freely.

mangeons's avatar

Congrats @johnpowell, I’m glad you’ve decided to stick around (off and on) for so long! You’re one of the first people I ever knew here and I hope you don’t leave us anytime soon. Keep on keepin’ on! :-)

wildpotato's avatar

Thanks for being here and sharing your incisive opinions, knowledge of computers ‘n stuff, and hatred of used socks. Congratulations on all the lurve!

AmWiser's avatar

Well deserved. Congratulations!

harple's avatar

I remember being so impressed with the Jelly map you made that I kept a link to it on my computer, which meant I was frequently able to share it when someone asked about it (never taking credit though)... I think that pissed you off, so sorry about that! That is a couple of years ago now though, so if you’re willing to forgive, do please take another congratulations from me on the 40K! :-)

ucme's avatar

^^Yeah, even though the map has me located floating in the north sea, which amuses me no end.

CWOTUS's avatar

The thought amuses many of us, @ucme. Maybe for different reasons.

ucme's avatar

Don’t tell me people slag off folks behind their backs…in groups, well there’s a surprise….not!
That’s okay though, so long as they’re happy.
