I'm pretty sure that's a different system.

I've been thinking about this one a bit more and have come to the conclusion that it takes a certain kind of person to contribute lots of posts to this forum.

It has to be person with right kind of qualifications - a love of WFOs, a sense of humour, someone who likes working with their hands, all that kind of stuff.


But the main and most important qualification has to be: someone with a heck of a lot of time on their hands.... right?


And George... you want abuse? Stop equating being a stay at home parent and spending all your time in the forum with not having a life... even if it may be true. There are far worse ways of spending your time if you do happen to be at home most of the time.

My forum participation tends to be sporadic these days.

With two teens who have a constant "need" to be connected to the 'net - usually the other FB (FaceBook) though "homework research" is occasionally a legit excuse - I either have to beat them off with a stick to get near the computer or get on-line early before they get up (less & less am I able to outlast them at night till they're in bed)!

The money for a third computer got spent on building an oven .

Uh-oh, talk about the ghost of times to come.... I can still force mine to let me have a go at the computer at the moment. Just.
