    Excellent! Now we’re back in business. Understand you’re pulling some of the staff back into the fold as well. Best wishes everybody!

    Thanks, BBme, Robert and Mike. I appreciate the support.

    Mike – Erin and I went out and toasted last night as well. It’s been quite the flurry of activity since buying back the assets on November 7th. Here’s to the new year!

    I can’t even imagine what it took to starighten it out but I am glad you did it. I hope you got some kind of Darth filter on this thing.

    More than just my opinion.

    Filter? Yes. It’s the “Ignore User” link under a person’s picture. But you have to be signed into to take advantage of the feature. Not that we’d use it on Darth, of course.

    Darth is busy partying on the west coast so we will have to wait until he is done before we give it a try.

    The site looks good. We appreciate all your work.

    Hello, Mike. Welcome back!

    It is good to have a collaborative forum for LSS professionals back in action.

    Happy New Year everyone,

    Mike – congratulations on the re-launch.

    All – I’m looking forward to stimulating, honest, entertaining and if Darth is posting, irrelevant discussion.

    I’m even looking forward to the “What is Six Sigma?” or “I just graduated and I’m looking to get my Master Black Belt certification, can anyone help me?” questions.

    Can’t believe Carnell is staring up on me already. It’s great to be back and I look forward to isicksigma recapturing some of the fun of the past.

    One of my resolutions for this year….once I get sober….and I actually remember that I posted this….is to be helpful, considerate and non sarcastic to all posters, even the stupid ones and to treat Carnell and Stan as the gentlemen and professionals that they are….Stevo is a different matter.

    You are easy to pick on. Target rich environment.

    I assume you survived the west coast party with some brain cells still functioning. Posting again is like putting on my favorite t-shirt. Just feels comfortable.

    With this new 512 KB limit on posts we are definitely going to have to get Stevo to shorten his posts.

    That’s only half a MB on attachments. Stevo can post as much as he wants as text — in fact, I’ll give him double the points for every novel he pens on the discussion forum. :)

    You shouldn’t tell him that he will stst that Haiku stuff again with long explainations of short poems.

    Careful with those points some of us are taking it very serious.

    Hi Real Mike,
    Happy New Year to you and the Mrs. Yes, we survived the cruise and the subsequent trip to Tahoe although both are still a bit fuzzy. Things on the new Forum will be great as long as FM doesn’t take a “Marxist” approach to monitoring our posts or should I say yours in particular. As for points, I remember on the midnight call he said we could trade them in for airplane tickets or use them like Amex points. Don’t you recall that as well?

    Heather, so great to see the original group coming back together. Really missed the “heart” of the original isicksigma organization. Don’t worry, I am sure many of us will continue to ignore the rules and bring back the fun of the old Forum.

    Has anybody heard from Robert Butler? We need to get him back involved so there is at least some modicum of knowledge and helpfulness to the restored Forum.

    Hey Butler, post something so we know you are with us again otherwise Carnell and Stan will take over the Forum again. We need our “Most Helpful” guy back in as a counterbalance. Heather: who else is back? FM, you, Katie anybody else? Bet FM has seen a nice uptick in volume since the latest version re-emerged. Has anyone sent out an email to all the former posters or let them know the family is back together again?

    I’m not actually back with iSixSigma, just playing around on the new site and enjoying the discussion forum again. :)

    FM or Katie can answer the question of who is back better than I can.

    @Darth: I’m here! Fake Mike, of course. Erin Ducceschi is back as editor-in-chief and Liviu Siteanu is back as e-commerce manager.

    More important is the return of the Usual Suspects. I like Heather adding herself to the mix!

    That’s great. Now we need Stevo and HeeBee to ramp up the volume. Getting frustrated with the sign in bug so please get your crack IT group on it over the weekend. Have a good one.

    Robert – I am glad to see you are back. Thanks for the note over Christmas. I sounds like you had a good holidays. The great part of having you back is that the overall IQ of the DF just doubled.

    Check out Katie’s new picture. Color and a big smile. Much better.

    Hey if you are having trouble with the site after FM has asked you “is there is someone younger in the house he can speak to” – he can make you a very nice video that coaches you through the issue that way you don’t have to listen to the heavy sigh when you ask a stupid question.

    @Heather Redinius-Tollefson – sorry Heather, you are too nice and too good looking to be a Usual Suspect. You will have to grow old or get really mean like Darth if you want to be one of us.

    @Heather doesn’t need to become a “ususal suspect.” She has her own group called Six Sigma Babies. I think it was created around October 23 – very early in the morning. There are a whole group of younger people who were children of Six Sigma Consultants and have been raised in this business. They are probably a more interesting group than the Usual Suspects.

    Just my opinion

    The only thing that probably makes the Six Sigma Babies “more interesting” is that we have all kinds of dirt on the rest of you! And you thought your children weren’t listening….LOL!

    I happen to know many of the Six Sigma Babies and I am pretty impressed with the people they have grown up to be.

    You should be…you fathered many of them or that is at least what they claim. I think Bonacorsi was one, wasn’t he?

    As long as many is exactly 2 then that would be correct. You and Lebowski can fight it out about anything to do with Bonacorsi. Actually in that picture you kind of look like ……………… no, i am not climbing into that gutter.
