A huge THANK YOU to Mako and all those "behind the scenes" folks that started this forum and keep it running.

As some may have noticed many other forums and similar websites are losing thousands and thousands of pictures due to Photobucket's recent TOS change that does not allow you to post your pictures on another website unless you pay them $40/month or $399/year.

Many thanks to the forward-thinking creators of this forum who allow us to store pictures right on this website without using a photo hosting service like Photobucket!

It looks like the "donate" button is back right under the "5002 Members" banner down the right side of the page... time to donate a few more $ to help with the costs of hosting all this valuable information and keeping it available.

(If you've been helped here or downloaded a free manual I know Mako would appreciate a small donation as a thank you... hosting this site isn't free although he has kept it free for us to use.)

WOW! We’ve added almost 800 new members since my last post the end of June!

Pretty exciting growth. Thanks to everyone and especially to the more prolific posters who help carry the load!

I honestly don't know what I'd do without this site. It has brought a breath of fresh air into my retirement. It seems that no matter what problem I have with a project there is always some well meaning individual somewhere on the planet trolling this site that has a solution. Bless you all.

Great place to come and find things out.
I know a few good forums but this is the best bar none.
Soon my wife will become a member too as i bought the HT1B for her so she will be coming here.

Can we all say 6,000 together?




Thanks for all the support! Enduronut, who would have thought? We guessed if we were to cobble together 400 members we would be in Fat City!

WOW. Just WOW!

This is an old thread, started back in the beginning by Greg French. I updated today, as we have hit a new milestone!

The site started online officially in about February of 2014. Greg started this thread the end of June of 2014 and we were all amazed as we approached 200 members.

Now - 5 years later! - we continue to grow. Exponentially this past month or so it seems.



I get new member signup notifications multiple times a day. The discussions are lively and entertaining. And in spite of the growth, WE SUFFER ALMOST NO SPAM! A tribute to both our spam blocking tools and the quality of the membership!

Thanks for all of the amazing support!

Mako
