All,

It has come to my attention that I inadvertently posted some information from an outside source that was not meant for public eyes. I guess a combination of exhaustion from getting used to a new baby and a drug induced fugue from some bad back spasms I was dealing with caused me to pay a little less attention to where I was reading information than I should have been.

I can assure everyone that it was totally unintentional, and completely stupid.

I apologize for the bad feelings it has left in some people, but more importantly, I am deeply ashamed for betraying the trust that I had been given with the information.

Well, I'm glad I didn't put you in charge of my grandmother's secret chicken soup recipe!

Seriously, I appreciate the philosophical importance of what gets posted where but there wasn't any information in your post that's not already common knowledge. Even in a drug-induced, diaper-inspired state of exhaustion, you would still have my confidence. :cheers:

I echo Joe's sentiments. I haven't read a post of yours that has offended me.

Get some rest. Peace.

I don't know what this is about, but Brian has never violated my trust. I hope the offended party or parties can come to view whatever it was as unintentional and not your style at all. I also hope all can be forgiven.

I'm no medical doctor, but I can easily imagine bad back spasms caused by baby deposits. :pirate:

That first line is just begging for one of Joe's "fixed" comments :devil:

Ron is probably more likely, Joe should still be satisfied/giggly about the Britney Spears "fix" he did on me a few years ago on the "Sipping absinthe, listening to music" thread.

I'm being optimistic, and haven't mentioned listening to The Band since, just in case he has something against them.

The Band, man they were something. I had the good fortune of playing dobro with Levon
Helm a few years back. What a nice guy. I wonder if he'd like absinthe?

I don't know how bad the break of confidentiality was (I haven't read it as far as I know) but I know you don't intentionally do that sort of thing, and I hope anyone involved is aware of that. Good on you for making a public apology.

I hope no one takes the mistake personally. Way to man up and apologize publicly. Now lets all have a drink and let by gones be by gones. And when giving info in confidence lets all remember to make it clear its confidential. :cheers:

The info was very clearly confidential, simply due to where it was located, but it was my mistake in not paying attention to where I was reading it.

It seems like it won't be injurious to anyone, but might cause some minor annoyances to one person in particular that I'd never want to cause annoyance. So hopefully they will not be too upset.

I find most absinthe drinkers to rarely if ever get too upset, especially when they are well stocked in absinthe. :drunk: I hope all works out and no harm is done.

"Let he among you who is without sin cast the first stone." I would guess we've all made such a blunder in our lives. But how many of us come forward before being called on it to fess up and apologize? To me, this is the definition of being an honorable person.

Yeah Baubel is right, "gadgets" is a term used for cool things that actually have a purpose and function. :biggrin:

Indeed. When my brother tried to show it off to me I held it up to my ear and said "Hello? Hello?". He sighed and told me it wasn't an oversized phone that doesn't phone.
