    I've tested the waters at the other two boards and found i do like this one better. The censorship sometimes seems a little heavy handed, but I'll deal with it.

    I've been going to Vegas for 40+ years and moved there for two years. (Big Mistake) I enjoy sharing the information I have gathered over the decades and don't find any question to be dumb or repetitive although the feeling I got from the other boards was not quite so positive. Many current or former members on those boards and maybe they are just cross posting? I don't know.

    I don't have the time to post on three different boards like some do. So, long story short, I'm back here. Can I get a yea from Gambler & Breeze? Two long time posters that said in emails that they wished I would come back to VMB.

    So, who wants to talk about non-strip properties, or the best place to eat downtown? :D

    I'm glad you're back, Joe. I've always valued your input and posts and was quite sad you left.

    I'm sure a lot of the members here feel the same way.

    Welcome back!

    Wonderful to have you back, Joe. :blowkiss:
    We were going through a family illness/death in the past few months and didn't
    know the extent of what happened on the board. Probably a good thing.
    This board is a pretty good fit for us despite the hubby's cranky posts from time to time. :D

    The other day I asked the hub if I should send you a message to see if you were okay.
    Then I went through some older threads and figured it out.

    Glad to know you are well and that you're back. :beer:

    I've followed you on other boards. I too believe this is the best board for me. But I have the time(retired) to view and chat on all three boards.

    I also am glad you are back! I value your opinion and observations on Vegas. We are Boyd and downtown fans and I look to you and other downtown and Boyd posters for information. Welcome back Joe!!

    Well it's about time. So glad to see you back Joe! You have lots of Vegas knowledge to share.

    I had a terrible run on our last trip to Vegas but stayed at MSS and really enjoyed it. I finally threw some money in your machine hoping my luck would change but even that didn't work. It'll be waiting there for you when you finally get back to Vegas.

    I guess you got your computer all sorted out?

    Glad your back. The wife and I spend most of our time on the strip but your TR's about the MSS got me to visit the last three trips for some VP and a tasty craft beer.

    Well Joe I am glad you're here! As you know I am everywhere, but glad you will be active somewhere. Vegas forums would suck without your expertise for sure.

    Welcome back Joe, as a relative novice to Vegas(6 trips and counting), I really valued your downtown advice for my first two trips when staying at El Cortez.

    I also tried one of the other boards but not sure if it's an age thing(i'm 54), but to me just seems like a lot of immature folk ripping into each other and trying to outdo each other because of the lack of censorship.

    I'll continue to use this board to get advice on cheap/frugal deals/places to eat etc and also the great trip reports.

    Far from it. The update to Windows 10 has been nothing but hell. I have spent 20+ hours on the phone with 4 different Microsoft techs. Three of those techs have taken remote control of my computer to remedy the update. None have worked. I am at what Microsoft calls Level 3 tech help and their top level. All of them are based in India and language is hard sometimes. I don't like Win 10 but I suppose I could get used to it. I can't get my main email account to work and he keeps blaming the server (AT&T) but it works on my laptop and my wife's tablet, so I know that is not the case.

    It's been a very frustrating week. Another call back scheduled for tomorrow.
