I upgraded twice to a newer version of WordPress,
Since 22 July 2004, I have had 1 BMW 3-er Touring, 2 Alfa Romeo 147s, 1 Peugeot 206,
I wore my Panerai Ref.113, Rolex Sea-Dweller¬?or GMT-Master II most of the time,
Am busy with my 3rd job, 2nd time as an IT Auditor,
Earned absolutely nothing with this web site which is fine to stay ‘free of speech’,
Used only 1 PC since (a Dell Dimension),
Switched from being a Moderator at the Watch U Seek Omega Forum to the Rolex Forum,
Totally worn out a pair of Tod’s loafers,
Travelled to 13 different countries for pleasure or business,
Watched tons of movies, downloaded tons of music while working on this site….
