    To think that I know Swift, an administrator. I am connected to a famous person! I'm a fame magnet.

    Ladies and gentlemen in honour of Swift gaining Administrator I hereby propose we engage in a series of appropriate sporting events to convey our beliefs as to the great impact this will surely have.

    I propose: "Synchronised User Panicking", "Mens and Womens Terror Screaming", along with a mixed doubles event, "30 minute breaking up of the unlicensed BAUT gambling ring" (courtesy of an Sgt. Bilco), as well as the "300 metre sprint out of the accidental blast radius" and the "Coordinated Ban Dodging".

    (Seriously, Well done Swift, any chance of letting us peasantry know what the secret admins lair looks like?)

    Personally, my favor CQ sporting event is running around in panicked circles. I'm surprised we have had more of this given the coming of the end of the Maya world (or is that the coming Maya end of the world?).

    This must mean your motto is:

    When in danger, when in doubt,
    run in circles, scream, and shout.

    Back when I was chairperson of the local group of the Sierra Club, as an April Fool's joke I proposed changing my title from Chairperson to Ulan The All Being. The one person on the Executive Committee who even noticed the proposal thought I was semi-serious and that it was a cry for help .

    Not so much the end of the world as just a general malaise--the Mayan malaise. With turkey and sourdough.

    Swift has now completed the conversion process and become one of us. Be very afraid.
    Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.

    I bow before you all mighty dark lord.
    Maybe this promotion will reduce your puns since everyone else who has adminstrator status seems to post less and less.

    As part of his recent augmentation Swift's puns will gain power, "Resistance is futile".

    A vast knowledge base of puns and application of which should certainly be a said requirement for qualification.
    Swift serves us well.

    That's because we've been training to do something a little more fancy than running around in circles, to set us - the smart guys - a bit apart from everybody else when it's time to panick. So we ended up with the idea of running around in figure-8's (being also the symbol for infinity and all that). However when we did some practice runs and lined everybody up to run around in a huge figure-8 it didn't seem to work that well, so i'm afraid we missed our deadline for the end of the world panick as we're still trying to figure out why it wouldn't work.

    Oh, er, hello, Swift. I didn't see your post just now. Hehe. What I meant to say was...that is, I didn't mean....

    All hail our great and wise leader -- Swift the EmotiKhan!
    So many bugs, so little time.
