    Hard to believe, but, exactly 20 years ago this morning I started the TDPRI. I'm no longer a part of the site having retired last year but wanted to say HI and THANKS to everyone that showed up that first day (we had over 1,000 posts on day one) and that made this place so special.

    Best to all of you!

    Thank you Paul!

    This is one of the very few places I go to on a regular basis. I've learned so much from the other members on here and have made friends in real life with some...

    You are deeply appreciated.

    THANK YOU PAUL!......this is the only "discussion" type site I visit , (since YouSuckAtCraigsList went away) so I have to say TDPRI is an integral part of my day. Not only is it about a very important "thing" to me (Telecasters) but the folks on here are truly meaningful to my life......so, not only thanks to Paul, but thanks to everyone who helps make TDPRI what it is!!!!!! ;)

    Thanks Paul!

    I vividly remember the Noam days, the blackout and the general relief when you took over.
