    Beat me to it!

    A little accelerator_dd story. A couple of years ago accelerator_dd came over to the States to go to ASW in San Francisco and we hung out together. One of the days we decided to go and play golf at a fairly well know golf course, Harding Park, with Meathead1234 and one of Meathead's colleagues (who could eat like a horse).

    Meathead is a very good golfer, I'm average, Meathead's colleague had played before but was a rookie and accelerator_dd had never been within 20 miles of a golf ball, let alone ever tried his hand at the game. As a golfer, you do not care if the guys you are playing with are good, bad or otherwise, you just care that everyone has a good time.

    So Meathead and I have a little wager on the round and the colleague and accelerator_dd are just playing along and we are all having a nice day of it. Accelerator_dd was missing the ball and tearing up the course pretty badly as a person that was neither athletic nor experienced and Meathead turned to him at about the 6th hole and said, "Darko, you are so bad you shouldn't even be allowed outside!".

    We all got a good laugh about it and accelerator_dd is a good sport and laughed as well... I still crack up thinking about that. He's not much of a golfer but he is a heck of a coder and a super guy... he's a great son, a super brother and a man that I am glad to call friend.

    Happy Birthday, Darko!

    Happy Birthday accelerator_dd!

    Anytime I have a method I want to implement but don't know how to stick the tech pieces together
    he always helped me and never looked down on my coding ability etc. One of the best domain checkers
    and could spot fake metrics in his sleep.

    One of my friends and members of the forum who has a beer or 10 coming from me if we
    touch base on the same side of the world.

    Cheers mate!

    Thanks man!

    Thank you!

    Fun times! Good thing we didn't get charged extra for me breaking the golf course (they really should have!).

    Those pending beers keep me wake at night! Next time I am in that part of the world, count on it!

    Thanks man!

    I can break a golf course better than most! We should have t-shirts made :p

    Thanks man! Just got internet access back, only was online from the phone before that, and you can't really do much with that. Good times!

    Word of advice - if you are as bad as I was bet against yourself and you'll have tons of fun!

    Thank you, ramanan!

    Thanks man!

    Thank you, Aty!
