Unhappy hanging up my soldering iron

it is what it is, i have a new job that pays good and takes up my time. and i dont have the time to work on electronics anymore, and when i do i rush it and blow it up. ill be selling everything, my wife wants the room back for guests.

its been a fun few years, heck of a good forum.

Hi Bill,
Sorry to hear that, I know you've thought about this.

Please do continue to "hang out" if you have the time.

Remember, DIY and this forum are like a virus. Medicines can keep it under control but you never get rid of it. Thanks for sharing your time and knowledge, see you tomorrow.

NO! Have your new boss and wife call me, I'll chat with them. We'll have things fixed up in no time.

Sorry to hear that. I really enjoyed reading your posts. Just remember tho, there are ALWAYS options...

BTW, can I have your pogostick?

I am now with wife number two. The courts gave so much to wife number one, that I had to sell tools to eat... for awhile.

It took a long time to replace to tools... much easier to find a new wife. And this wife BUYs me tools; with HER money.

Please think about this...

Poobah, you might of thought of me as a problem, but I will miss your contributions. You know your stuff, even though you are 'wet behind the ears' about audio.

Please send wife to me because I could use a new one. This will take care of your problem and mine. You will be able to keep the back room and tools and still contribute to the forum.

Problem solved

Hey John,

I'm not going anywhere... it's karma that's "hanging up his iron".

Oh.. and I don't think your a problem. My experience with audio has generally been in creating music. Engineering is a different issue... digital music synthesis to robotics to small-signal-high-speed aquisition systems to 125 kW 60Hz 3ph sine wave amps. I always work just behind my level of competency... where the money is. When I'm "dry behind the ears"... it's time to move on.
