Default Thank you

I have had some very very hard things to deal with in my life recently and being able to participate in this forum especially the past 2 and half years has been a very important distraction for me. I want to say thank you to those of you who contribute constructively to the forum, those who have treated others well and made it a good place to interact, those with a sense of humour who don't get too up tight and I hope others will see that as an example to follow.

Rgds,
Gareth

a.k.a. Bigun

Hey Bigun, couldn't agree more. Between this place and the kitchen, I have many of life's troubles melt away and you're one of those I always enjoy seeing online.

Cheers.

What they said. I have had a pretty rough winter myself, and found refuge here, and some folks here reached out and offered even more help. What a great bunch of people.

Don't tell them over at CERN but diyaudio.com is the real reason Al Gore invented the internet

Truly great people on here.

Thank you!

Hi Gareth,
You know you're always welcome here. Let's be that distraction that keeps you sane. You're also more than welcome here at my place too.

Take care Gareth, Chris

Wow, Gareth - your post made me stop and remind myself that behind all of the avatars and banter are real people living real lives. I certainly hope whatever challenges you've faced have gone, or have at the very least eased somewhat. It's also made me reassess my own recent behavior and aspire to do better. I suppose I should be the one thanking you - and all of the other "good guys" on the forum too, for that matter.

-Larry
