my thoughts exactly, ive take bits of informtion from all over from new and old and have cobbled it together in to what i know now. i possibly wouldnt still be here with out some of the guys that stated out around the same time as me or the folks that hang out in off topic having fun and joking around.

So many people have gone into making this site what it is. I can never repay people for the body of knowledge!

Tony did start the site, but it was rewritten by my friend who I believe has passed away, and of course Husker did a ton of work on it. I'm not good with PHP which is why I have such a hard time modifying it. The data there was very old, dating back to the mid 90's. I prefer the wiki since anybody can edit it to improve or add things. Or to correct things which is even better.

Hard for me to even remember all the greats who have come and gone.

What about The Chemist? That dude was very knowledgeable. And of course so many of the names already mentioned. I'm humbled when I go through and read what others have done.

I picked up on 'The Chemist' after browsing, and enjoyed a lot of his comments & respected his knowledge.
I Read through a lot of his post's a while back today. He had a great sense of humour too. I was saddened to
see his posts cut short a good few years ago. I guess he was another 'One off'' character, and the mould has
since been broken.

WOW. I got to this party too late. This place is the best and the founders and all who have contributed to the site should be praised for leading us all down the right path. Thanks for pushing me to make a great still Mr PP, Samohan, Mulekicker, pintoshine, emptyglass,HookLine, Odin and who can forget Rad and his calculators I use often. These people and so many more helped me to succeed. Thank you.
