    Default Coming up for air - hi everyone!

    Sorry I've been out of touch for a few months. I work for one of the big banks that's busy losing billions, and the past several months have been absolute hell. I had to let go of several people, so now there's fewer people to do the work, and lots more work to do. It's been incredibly busy, and not fun at all, so haven't had much time for fun lately.

    But I decided to slow down, take a breath, and come say hi. For any newbies around, this is such a wonderful forum, with some incredibly knowledgeable people who are willing their time to pass along very valuable advice! Do take advantage....

    Hope everyone is having a great new year.
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    Please. Please contact me a ben62670 @ yahoo.com. Make sure to include who you are, and you are from Polk so I don't delete your email. Also I am now physically unable to work on any projects. If you need help let these guys know. There are many people who will help if you let them know where you are.
    Thanks

    Better to be the one doing the cuts then the one on the chopping block.

    Don't be too sure, I've been on both sides. It sucks either way...
