I, and possibly others, check the thread to see what he posts because not everyone keeps regular track of SpaceX.

Wow! What a sight!

Did you guys see the thrusters on the first stage start firing just after separation!? AWESOME!

Mission success!!! The second stage reignited properly and placed the payload into its proper supersynchronous transfer orbit! This successful completion of a GEO transfer mission should give SpaceX a serious credibility boost.

Outstanding.

According to some second or third-hand eyewitness reports, despite it not being planned publicly, the first stage was re-ignited after separation, and made a partial controlled descent before the engine shut down again.

I thought something was happening with it when I saw those thruster jets (those magnificent thruster jets) firing off.

Sketchy info, I know. Cool to think about, though. Supposedly they promised SES that all the fuel on board would be used in boosting the satellite, and so didn't schedule a re-ignition test.

Even if they burned to depletion before staging, they could still have fired the ACS just to test that portion of the reentry sequence.

Awesome footage of the launch from the coast of the Bahamas, with some hilariously wrong-footed narration

Launch of the Falcon 9 carrying the Thaicom-6 satellite is set for today at 22:06 UTC, with webcast coverage beginning here at 21:26 UTC.

This will be SpaceX's second GEO transfer mission, and the final mission without plans to conduct a controlled descent of the first stage. Most, if not all, future Falcon flights will conduct controlled descent and landing of the first stage.

Launch was a success and the second stage is in the correct parking orbit. Next it will relight to achieve the correct transfer orbit, and then deploy the satellite.
