Letter from RAD in-box: Brandon's yearly note of gratitude

Today I have a letter from the Rad in-box to share with you. The subject is titled: Yearly note of gratitude. See here:

I first found your site as a neophyte. But I'm no longer a neophyte, thanks primarily to Radified.

Back around the turn of the millennium, a Google search for Norton Ghost returned your Ghost guide. I remember reading for so long that my eyes felt like sandpaper.

Back around the turn of the millennium, a Google search for Norton Ghost returned your Ghost guide. I remember reading for so long that my eyes felt like sandpaper.

So I printed a copy and began scribbling notes in the margins. I still have that old copy here in a binder, and have read it at least a dozen times over the years. I don't need to read it anymore, though.

I still review your partitioning guide as a refresher before sectioning off a new drive.

RADIFIED has been my home page since that first discovery. No, I haven't read your whole site. But your site has helped add many tools to my toolbox. EAC, LAME --alt-preset insane (I don't care if I cant hear it, I still want to feel it with the subwoofer).

Ghost -or -auto (had a little problem until I discovered the switches), Feurio!, PQ, FDISK to start with.

I've read your blog since "before you knew you were a blogger". That was funny. "Hey, guess what? I'm blogging." LOL

I enjoy your input. Like the recent updates on your router experiences. I share similar experiences. Been there: "Don't know why it started working but it did..." Now, DONT TOUCH IT! I now subscribe to the philosophy that says, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," especially since free time has become scarce.

How's your son? Mine is 2 already. They require so much time & attention. Love the photos.

It's mysterious to me why, but I really appreciate your continuity. I read your blog and appreciate that it's always there, over the years. It's like a unifying element to the info-glut on the Internet. Here is something I can rely on, can keep track of it, keep up with it, learn from. It's always there and never in my face.

Thanks for 2005.
