Milestone Moment

This is the one thousandth post on Bytes. I have enjoyed posting and I have enjoyed the feedback.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
