Coming from the new guy to the forum AND woodworking... I can say that there is an astounding amount of knowledge and talent on this forum. I'm already members of entirely too many forums but this is the only woodworking forum I frequent and in the few short weeks I've been posting I've already gathered quite a bit of knowledge.

She will probably try to pass off that same old CAKE that everybody "gets" for their birthday. Do pictures get stale?

It is the talkFestool members who make this forum what it is. Like the other Mods and Admins, I work hard for the forum. However, I work much harder trying to be a good forum member! It's difficult keeping up with you guys and lady!

Many thanks,

Dan.

I have to agree with Dan, this forum is what our members have made it. Those of us behind the scenes just provide a place for you to post and where you can be creative. It's the members that have steered it to where it is.

It's been a wonderful first year and I hope we have many more great years. It's been a pleasure to learn more about many of you through all the posts.


P.S. My prediction is John will still have no power by our 2nd anniversary. He will discover that he needs a small nuclear power plant to power the shop and he will be still filing the red tape paperwork.

Hey - did you notice that we're only 2 members away from 1000 members? That's kind of cool.

In fact, Steve, I'm looking at those right now. They're pretty darn expensive to set up. Not to mention the cost of shipping all the nuclear waste down to San Diego.

Peter, the true number is the one at the bottom of the Member List, which now sits at 947.

For some reason the total on the front page still includes some of the spammers we had to boot.

Nuclear power is FAR too dangerous and frightening for the hobbyist to install in the home workshop.

Anyway, John would need at least 1.21 jigowatts of power.
