Post by timmy » Sat Dec 24, 2016 9:55 am

Happy Holidays Bogleheads. This place is one of the most useful places on the internet. I'm thankful for that.

If you celebrate X-MAS, Merry Christmas!

And Happy New Year to All :sharebeer

2016 is the first year I am maximizing my 401(k) and IRA partly due to the Bogleheads. :happy

Happy New Year, and special thanks to those who run the website and bring it back to life after an outage. I'm guessing the server had one too many drinks over the holidays.

So the server decides to start the party early and run out of space on New Year's Eve.

It knows the IT support rule of thumb that nothing goes wrong, except on holidays and weekends. All OK now.

I'd also like to extend end-of-year best wishes and thanks to the entire Boglehead community and support team ... being connected has made a big difference to my wife, daughters and me! :-)
