Wow. Thanks for the props. Wouldn’t have participated nearly as much without folks like @JeremyNielsen and @Xabbess keeping the topics going. And there are the posters who post less frequently, but when they do, it’s epic. Take a bow @m_raynsford.

Excellent mentions!
And Jacob makes a good point in that the spread and depth of skills accumulated here is formidable, and all the participation, whether a question or an answer adds to the to the sum of the forum.

I don’t post often, but I read all the input from all you great people. Figure if I am going to learn, to learn from the best. Thank you all for sharing all that wisdom.

@Xabbess I’m about 15km (9 miles) south in dornbirn. not the capital but the 10th biggest town in austria and about 1.6 times bigger than bregenz. mind you that’s only a village in some countries.

@morganstanfield wish you and your loved ones all the best@

Sending good wishes to your family member…and to you who care for them. It’s a tough time.

Oh my…what a small world. Yes, I know Dornbirn…and visited there also, as the sister of our Austrian family still lives there. She is very aged, but still going. Her last name is Fässler. What a truly lovely country Austria is. I live in Oregon in America…and it looks very much like Austria…both countries are on the 45th parallel. And you are right…the difference in the size of our countries is amazing. Our spaces are vast and they are small, there. Great to meet you, ylene.

Maybe there should be a new forum rank - ‘Maven’.

:slight_smile: Its a good list @printolaser (thanks @Xabbess & @jacobturner for making sure his name made the cut as well :wink: ) i think i had a smaller, less comprehensive list somewhere else in the forum… but I can’t find it :frowning: oh well. Makers make a great community, and I must say that the knowledge contained in the forum and my link to so many varied and knowledgeable individuals is worth more than every penny I could spend on every tool I have ever desired to make or build. you guys are great :smiley:

I’d also like to echo the thank yous to the wonderful forum members mentioned above. I don’t post often but I read every thread and have learned SO much.

I can’t imagine how cool this forum will be once we all get our GFs and are able to bounce ideas back and forth!

I studied German in Wien in 1984. I have such a soft spot for Austria. I have a good friend who is a professor at the University of Vienna. It’s been too long, since 2008 since I visited.

Exactly! Reading through the forum, hard not to be impressed by the spectrum of interests and abilities represented here. Take that and add our common focus of the laser, and the forum becomes a rich resource of creative diversity for us all to draw from.
Hard to put a value on that!
