at the request of the management...

Pete just put up a poll at http://davecullen.com/forum/index.php?topic=12326.0 so we can find out approximately how many books we need to have printed in the first run. I don't know a single soul who gets around these threads better or more than you do. So I wondered if you would help us spread the word and get a bunch of folks to fill out the poll for us. Could you point them in that direction as you move from thread to thread (like a ministering angel)?

thank you...

hallo allemaal,
er zijn best veel nederlandstaligen hier, leuk!
heb me al een tijd geleden aangemeld, maar tot nu toe nooit actief geweest op het forum. Dat is ook een beetje zelfbescherming, ik ben al zo hopeloos brokeback verslaafd en breng veel teveel tijd door op livejournal...
Toch kon ik het niet laten, want het ziet er hier gewoon erg gezellig uit. Interessante discussies, leuke mensen.
De perfecte omstandigheden voor werk-ontwijkend gedrag ;)

groetjes, Marjolein

Groetjes, Marjolein, en welkom bij ons in deze forum! Wij hebben verscheidene mensen hier, en ik hoop dat je zich bij ons gezellig voelt!

(Sorry, I know some of that is ungrammatical, but I'm in a little bit of a rush here and don't have time to look things up!)

het is prettig om in dit forum mijn engels te verbeteren, maar het is ook leuk om ergens in het nederlands te kunnen kletsen.
bedankt voor de leuke welkomst berichtjes. Ik voel me al helemaal thuis!

Nog een vakantie gepland naar de VS? ...

---------------------------------------------------------

Every visitor to US to be assessed as 'risk' secretly

WASHINGTON -- Starting Monday every person entering and leaving the United States will be evaluated as terrorist threats without their knowledge, and the results will be held for 40 years, according to the US Department of Homeland Security.

A US civil liberties group warned against the plan, calling it "invasive."

The US "government is preparing to give millions of law-abiding citizens 'risk assessment' scores that will follow them throughout their lives," said David Sobel, of the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

"If that wasn't frightening enough, none of us will have the ability to know our own score, or to challenge it," he said in a statement.

A Homeland Security spokesman confirmed that computers of the Automated Targeting System will do the screening.

"We use it to improve the collection, use and analyze intelligence that would help us target and identify potential terrorists or terrorist weapons from entering the US," department spokesman Jarrod Agen said.

The US government quietly placed notice of the program in the November 2 Federal Register.

"The Automated Targeting System performs screening of both inbound and outbound cargo, travelers and conveyances," the notice said.

The foundation calls the system an "invasive and unprecedented data-mining system," in which computers look for suspicious persons and score them as potential risks by trolling information from a multitude of sources, such as airline passenger information, the US Treasury, the Commerce Department, credit card numbers and the meals eaten on flights all help add up the score.

Travelers may not review -- or challenge -- their scores for the next 40 years, according to the November 2 notice.

However, "routine uses of the records" are: sharing with "federal, state, local, tribal or foreign government agencies maintaining civil, criminal or other relevant enforcement information or other pertinent information, which has requested information relevant or necessary to the requesting agency's clearance, license, contract, grant or other benefit and disclosure is appropriate to the proper performance of the official duties of the person making the disclosure," the notice said.

Persons who may see the information on a "routine" basis are: "a court magistrate, or administrative tribunal"; "third parties during the course of a law enforcement investigation"; an "agency, organization or individual for the purpose of performing audit or oversight operations"; "a Congressional office"; and "contractors, grantees, experts, consultants, students and others," according to the announcement.

An announcement from the moderators about the slowdown problem that we’ve been experiencing at various times, centering from about 9:00 am until about 12:00 noon GMT:

The administration has been working extremely hard to solve the slow down issue that has been plaguing the forum for some months now. It has been determined that to solve this we will have to change the host company of the forum. The new host server has now been contracted with by Dave as of today.

We are proceeding rapidly now and hope to have the conversion complete within a few weeks at the latest and hopefully much sooner. We will keep you (members) apprised. Please look for announcements in the Newsbox. Some changes will likely come up suddenly--that is the nature of computer conversions, so it is impossible to know before we test whether something will go flawlessly and take two hours, or uncover thorny issues that will take days. The testing process is being started. This will not affect the forum at this point.

So taking this into consideration, we don't want to give you timeframes that are unrealistic. As soon as we finish a stage, we'll proceed immediately to the next, and the exact changeover will likely come on very short notice to you (members). We will post this changeover time in the Newsbox as well as in the individual threads, and will give you as much lead time as we can manage. This will enable us to end the slowdown ASAP.

Thank you for your patience.

waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaauuuuwwww!!!
dit is zoooo cool!
ik kan hier dus gewoon nederands spreken op een amerikaanse site?? geweldig :o :o
ik ben wel geen nederlandse, maar een belgische, en voor diegenen die het niet weten, in belgie spreekt men 3 talen, vlaams(nederlands) frans en duits. ik woon in vlaanderen, amper 15 kilometer van de europese hoofdstad, Brussel dus, ik zelf ben tweetalig, en spreek dus nederlands en frans.
ik kom nu toch wel al een paar maand hier op het forum, en nu ontdek ik dit pas, dit forum heeft zijn verassingen en mysteries ;D
iig, een dikke goeiendag aan de nederlanders en de belgen hier(weet niet of er nog belgen zijn) en natuurlijk ook aan al de rest.(hello everyone)
ik vind het fantastisch dat ik dit forum heb gevonden, want BBM houd me nu al maanden en maanden in de ban. nu begint het wel te gaan, maar in het begin, heb ik dagen niet kunnen eten en slapen, ik was kapot van verdriet, ik stelde me zo in ennis' zijn plaats, dat ik echt zijn pijn en gemis voelde. ik heb dagen gejankt, en nu nog word ik vaak weeig als ik eraan denk of scenes herbekijk. het blijft voor mij de mooiste film ooit, ook al heeft hij me enorm veel verdriet gedaan.

hi isa  :)
welkom ook op dit deel,heb je volgens mij al eens ergens welkom geheten,maar weet even niet meer waar  ;)
ik ben nederlandse en woon in ijmuiden,vlak bij amsterdam.
het forum is zo groot dat t niet raar is dat je dit nu pas ontdekt hoor  ;),duurde bij mij ook even voor ik alles door had.
net zoals ik de 1e weken ook heb lopen janken en mijn hele wereld op zijn kop stond,bijzonder he dat een film zo`n invloed op je leven kan hebben!!
hugs
