I dunno but I’ll take it! Thanks!
Happy Cakeday @jbmanning5! You are one of the guiding stars of the Glowforge galaxy. Thanks for all your contributions.
Honestly, I think cake (and even pie) is overrated. I’d rather have a slice of warm, fresh-baked bread.
With soft honey-butter.
Sigh! The little hedgehog patiently wipes the drool up off of the keyboard. Again.
Holy Guacamole! We’ve got so many Cakeday celebrations today that I can’t list them all in one post…Discourse won’t let me! (Didn’t anybody have anything to do on December 7th three years ago???)
Let’s try this…Happiest of Cakedays to:
And Happy Birthday to @jjmacdougall.
Let there be cake!
I can tell you exactly what it was.
I got an email announcing the glowforge beta.
You had to indicate your willingness on the forum.
So I joined the forum to sign up for beta testing, and that is an email that affected my life.
Not like getting religion or meeting my spouse life changes; but this forum and the laser over my shoulder have developed me into a maker. Inside Joke among my scout buddies: “Hey, did you know Merinda has a laser?” - and they all laugh because of the sheer volume of lasered scouty things they have.
I spent hours on the forum early on. I never heard an official word from the company; but I’m pretty sure I was a packaging tester with one of the very first Glowforge units in the wild - due to forum participation, I think. So I think I’ll go make a cake or something.
Joining this forum was indeed significant for me.
Cake sounds good! (Highly appropriate for celebrations of this nature.)
Wow, amazing! Congrats, folks! And happy birthday @jjmacdougall!
Boy, we really need an enormous cake, or loaf of fresh baked bread.
My parents were at a wedding where he sang years ago.
Didn’t realize he was a singer…but since it’s his birthday, we ought to be singing to him. (Poor thing!)
you are supposed to learn something new every day. and it doesn’t necessarily have to be about a glowforge
Happy Cakeday to everyone that I’ve missed over the past month and a half I’ve been away. I’ve missed so much and will try and catch up as I can. Happy Cakeday to all!
