Hey, Welcome :^)

I was confused just a bit earlier, when reading a later thread, i had seen your "new" moniker.

I just noticed that I am a Prophet again. Not bad for two days work. I only hope that my posts have more content than Groman's.

I have the same employment setup that you do only I stay in the US. Right now I'm in DC working, probably through September. Then I will probably be off through the end of the year. If I work year round it's generally to pay off something big or because I'm only working 40 hrs a week. I keep my expenses low so it doesn't take a lot. Could that be called semi-retirement?

Peter,

I know you're just trying to beat Groman's record raise from Neophyte to Elder. You'll win the Progeria award.

Hey that's easy.
Just keep posting stupid replies to your own posts and you'll be there in no time.

Eric.

Would this be called Diyphrenia ?.

I don't know if you noticed, but Groman stated WebSurfer as an ocupation in his profile. We shouldn't blame him then for what he does. It's an occupation like any other.

So Eric, would you classified that as a stupid reply to my own post?

It's not the tools, but imagination and desire. First you have to visualize what you want, and then having strong desire to realize that. As they say, where is a will, there is a way.

I remember when I was doing my first speakers in late eighties, cutting MDF on 11th floor of apartament building in winter. I bought a small portable table saw and then returned it back. Who needs machine shop?

I must admit though, that when I got older those desire is getting weaker and weaker...

And that's not a stupid reply at all.

The hardest thing for me is to get back in a groove (from diy point of view). Usually it takes me a 2 to 4 weeks to get adjusted and start doing something useful. So it is retirement at that time.

I estimate that it takes approximately 3 days for an active Forum member to become an Elder. Feels good to be one again.
And those posts were not totally content free.
