Howdy Gents! Don't remember the last time I signed into the files and made a post. Honestly, I'm surprised I even remembered my pword :lol: Interested to see who all is still active on here from the old days! @PCGuy I like what you've done with the place!

Anywho, I want to drop a quick thanks to everybody on here. This site is such an incredible wealth of knowledge. My experiences building air guns, and all of the devices that they led to, taught me more about physics and engineering than anything else prior to college. What started as air guns became machine tools such as my homemade lathe, scratch-built train horns + large high pressure air systems, 2-stoke engine experiments, and eventually motorized bicycles.

Had I never stumbled upon this site and the incredibly smart people who contributed to it, I may not have gotten to where I am today.

After college I went on to build rides for Universal Studios. If you're remotely familiar with the theme park industry, you've probably heard of Hagrid's, the ride that replaced Duelling Dragons in Islands of Adventure. I was super fortunate and got to be a part of the team that brought that ride to life. It was one of the coolest experiences of my life.

Last year I got a call from SpaceX, and made the decision to leave Universal and pursue an alternate career in aerospace. As a manufacturing engineer, my job at SpaceX could not be more perfectly aligned with my skill set... a skill set that I developed as a result of my experiences with this forum. Now, if you know anything about rocket anatomy, there are about a million similarities between rockets and the devices that we build and share on this forum. So, you can imagine that manufacturing them has its similarities as well.

Don't wanna ramble too much here. But I do want to convey my sincere thanks to everybody who has contributed to this forum over the years. @JSR, Technician1002, Ragnarok, mark f, Larda (the hybrid God himself, although I will forever be the Anti-Christ of hybrids), BtB, POLAND SPUD, DYI, Mr Crowley, SB15, Gippeto, D Hall, wyz, Hubb, and the list goes on and on. You all are awesome.

I joined the files about 10 years ago. WOW. That is absolutely insane...

THANK YOU SPUDFILES!! :D :D :D

I think I speak for all of us when I say how incredibly proud of your achievement we are, you're definitely one of this forum's best successes.

With your ever expanding knowledge and access to materials and tools, you'd think there are a few spudding projects knocking about in the works...

Holy shit it's Gun Freak!
I agree with JSR 100% and probably speak for everybody else as well when I say how proud we all are. You don't have to keep pumping out pneumatics (:p) but definitely try to pass your hobbies and curiosity on to those around you.

Welcome back, Gunfreak. NOW BUILD SOMETHING! :D I might design a large bore soup can launching monster. I think my next cannon should have enough recoil to just about put me on my ass. It's called for.

Very impressive achievements. I recently checked in here for the first time in over 5 years. Perhaps the pandemic will bring a few others back around.
