    well with the huge thread going on, I thought I'd post my happy news to get everybody's mind on happier thoughts (If you don't know what thread I'm talking about you seriously need a life:P)

    I've just made the decision to buy a video store in my hometown. If everything goes as planned I should be operating it by the end of the week. I will of course still work some on my current site and will be putting up a new site for the store. I of course count on everyone to stop by and see the new site when it is up and tell me what you think:P

    Aw, c'mon Jack - You've already got the whole dang town named after you. What more do you want! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Anyway, congratulations and good luck. Nice to see that the 10G gets put to work for you.
    If I'm ever in the neighborhood I'll stop in for a visit. Though I don't get out that way very often. :rolleyes:

    GOOD LUCK TO JACK'S VIDEO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey that's great Jack [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
    The guy who owns the local video store here sits around playing on his computer during the quiet times. You'll be able to build sites in the quiet times if you're going to work there.

    Every success with your new venture<IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon14.gif>

    Jack,

    Better get yourself a computer for in the store [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] That way you can still chat and work on pages while your slaving away.

    Congratulations!

    Make sure to hire lots of employees so you don't end up doing the w*rk!!!

    Just make sure the manager you hire isn't an a-hole. Strange how you can take a formerly reasonable fella, give him the title "manager", and he'll...mutate...

    thank you everyone! You are right, it is both exciting and scary lol. We stock new release movies(A titles), B movies, old movies, unrated movies(T & A) and Adult. I also plan to bring in Playstation 2 games and will have a grand opening Labor day Weekend. Plan on giving away a used VCR, TV, and movies on VHS and DVD

    Jack,

    Would it be safe to assume you will be spending most of your time "tweaking" the adult section? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] :eek: [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Congrats,

    Mike
