Special thanks, and a Merry Christmas
« on: December 20, 2007, 05:25:34 PM »
I would like to thank ALL of you who have contributed to this forum over the last year.
You have ALL made this place a great resource for others.

I would like to specially mention the admin staff, who have helped keep this forum running. Without your help this forum might not be still here.
To all the members, your questions and help towards each other, is very commendable.

We now have a commununity of more than 5,500 members. The growth has been fantastic.

I am especially proud of the video collection we have rapidly built over the last 6 months. ( More than 200) I love seeing the interesting ideas that you bring to the table. You lot are very creative. It is people like yourselves, who are willing to have a go, that help this global economy work.

Some of you may not be aware, but Art is retireing any moment from now. He has handed over the reigns to Brian Barker. We are going to need your support even more this coming year, as Brian settles into the possition. This is not the end, but a start of new things.

Lastly, I would like to honor Art and his fantastic work he has done over the last few years. He has turned the CNC world upside down. Gone are the days when you had to spend thousands on a hardware CNC controller. Arts work has enabled the little man to also enjoy, and profit from the world of CNC.

I would like to wish you ALL a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.

God Bless you all.
                      Regards Benny

Hats off to the whole lot of you. Art and his brillient, creative mind. Enjoy your retirement, you've earned it. Benny for starting this forum. It has proven to invaluable for many stepping into the CNC world. Brian for takeing over the controls and haveing what it takes to conduct this Crazy Train. All of the Admin. staff for their dedication and ability and willingness to work together. All of the members that are good for a lot of laughs, originality, and good manners. I only know a couple of handfuls of people I could spend this much time with and like it. The vast majority are here on the forum.

Merry Christmas Everybody!!!!!!                        Merry Christmas Everybody!!!!!!                        Merry Christmas Everybody!!!!!!

Oh yeah, and Hood for his hospitality, willingness to help, his overall knowledge, and the ability to play well with others (despite the fact he is a Redneck  ;D ).
