Hello West Racers!! Dragon2008 here and thrilled to get to do shout-outs this week on our new board! nomoredebtpls: Thanks for joining the group, nomoredebt! Co-Captain LaramiK (which I continue to spell LaramieK for some reason – sorry LaramiK) gave you the correct tag line to use: nomoredebtpls: 1/9/2011 $70,130.73 (1/9/2011 $70,130.73 WPT3). I look forward to your race, since I’m in total agreement with your name!
trojen3: I’m so glad your DH will be returning to you soon! And great spreadsheet, trojen! I love how you kept your 2010 starting dates – what a great reminder of how far you’ve come!
alpinista: Love your avatar, and your goals are pretty wonderful too!! Hopefully Murphy will take a break and let that EF grow! You are still doing great – you are paying down your debt AND have an EF AND follow a budget. You are working your program and the results speak for themselves on how much you’ve paid off in such a short time. I remember your first posts when you weren’t sure you could paydown any of your debt – how do you feel now?
shanendoah: love how the glowy numbers emphasis your paydown! You are doing so well with your goals!!
stormysix: Wow – over $50K paid off in three years. That is awesome! And those zeros that are popping up in your list are great! Your chart looks fabulous!
FemaleSam: Glad you made it over, your chart looks great! I especially love all the 100% paid off entries!
salsera_barby: Another great chart – I’m going to have to get mine to work well and look nice like yours! Peer pressure – not just for debt paydown anymore!
onestepcloser: I’m sorry to hear about your job loss – I hope we hear great news about your fab new job soon!
dvm07: Great update! Getting a debt down 50% is wonderful! And thanks for supporting all of us on the board!
mcreal: It may be a thimble’s worth, but you are definitely emptying your boat! Congrats to your daughter (who really takes after her DM!) for getting a scholarship and winning the RA position!
Ambellamy: Great test chart! Can't wait for the real post!
lvbriannarn: Sounds like a simplified update is a “good thing” right now – you have enough on your plate! Let us know how you, baby and DH are doing!!
Stormysix2: I think your beginning page in the tag line will be WPT4, is that right co-captains?
Hope everyone has a wonderful week and we see the rest of our group over here! SlowbutSure and dvm07 are working out the smiley thread, so look for that coming soon!

Hmm, OK, this is the first time I've posted on this new forum so it didn't post right, anyway, all my current balance's are zero. Now it's time to build up my emergency fund and start doing some investing.
Now it's time to build up my emergency fund and start doing some investing.
If you are looking to learn how to invest, check out the Investing: Basics and Beyond Board. Both pay-no-interest from the South region and I spend a lot of time there trying to pick the brains of the guys; they are extremely knowledgeable and willing to teach.
Kahlan - Congratulations - this is such a huge achievement. Your success keeps me motivated! Thanks for being an inspiration. Take all your discipline and determination and set youself up financially for a worry free future. And treat yourself really well, you deserve it!
Well, I couldn't get to the old WIRR Site and never thought to copy my tag line anywhere else, so what do I do now? I guess I never thought we would move or anything. was offline most of Dec - Jan and am leaving tomorrow night for my MOM's for 6 weeks and She has no computer at all, and my desk top is not small enough to take anywhere. I don't want to miss anything now as we are in transitioning to Don't want to lose you Lady's and gents.

Arctic Turtle - I'm glad you found us! Your tag line should be on the attached smiley word document I've put in somewhere... I think I remember post 85 as having it. If it's not there, the next round of shoutouts will have your update.
Speaking of which... I was really hoping that the new permanent threads will be up and running by now; CoffeeGirl must be having a really hard time with family right now. Nasagreen (from the South Region) told me how she updated her smilies, so I'm going to see if I can copy her method and get it (or at least portions of it) to work tonight. We can't let the South Region have the emoticons without us having them, right?

Ok all! It's SlowbutSure here and I'm playing with the smilies list. Note, I know the list below is a tad out of date and I'm guessing on the smilies that CG wants to use. It'll all be updated for good once we get to the permanent thread. <<Crossing fingers that that will be soon.>> This part however will still need to get done.

Plus, it looks like we can give out the $100 smiles to everyone again since there is plenty of room in a post. It's crazy, but these silly smiles makes me happy. If they make you happy, go give Nasagreen some karma. It's only because she told me how to do this without making it be too difficult for me and the other captains, that I even attempted this now.
I know its only $.10 less but its $.10 less I don't have to pay next month.
I have sent an e-mail to CoffeeGirl, did that before I updated. I check the web as usual, was getting caught up on reading. Signed in to this web site, thought I'll just finish when I sign in again to update and WIRR on MSN was no more... . Didn't even think to get my info in case it was gone the next time I signed on. I am so glad you had my old information...Thank you..
No worries, dvm07! I was avoiding work last night and had to come up with something else to do. Besides, I've left the $100 smilies for you. CG is updating our spreadsheet. I'm hoping that she'll finish with the spreadsheet and start the permanent threads all by this weekend so we can play catch-up. If that doesn't happen, we can use the smilies attachment that I sent y'all last night.
if someone can private message me some instructions I would appreciate it!
Go to the general board. There is a how-to sub board there and one of the categories discusses avatars. If you are still confused, send one of the moderators a PM with the link to your avatar. The J or Scottish Lassie have been extremely helpful in uploading them for the EEers; I'm sure they will help you.
