My 1000th Post - thank you all.
« on: August 22, 2014, 08:26 AM »

Although this is my thousandth post since joining the FOG back in May, 2013, it is not a celebration, rather an offer of my appreciation to all members.

One thousand represents approximately 67 posts per month. Too many? I certainly agree.  However through the trite and hogwash, I trust some members have been challenged, informed or were engaged to share the joke.  [big grin]

FOG  debates have often engaged me? Metric and Imperial comes to mind; four at last count. Then there have been my suggestions to move the 'Logout Button' and 'Ban +1'.  "Ahhhh! Did he have to mention the Logout Button!", I hear Shane.   [eek]  At least it was moved, eventually!

The advice I have read and personally received regarding techniques, projects and tools has challenged me to higher criticism of my work, and consequently greater precision and improved techniques. Through posts that share cultural, craft and technical insights and differences my imagination has taken me to the worksites and workshops of members in the US, Canada, UK, and continental Europe. Even other parts of Australia.  I have also read of the difficulties of working in Eastern Europe or Thailand, the general life of members in Finland, France and the Netherlands and I have been intrigued by the transportation challenges of those working in New York. And Tinker has told me of just how things were, 'back in the day'. A wealth of information and history from our 'youngest' member.

Since joining, four more Festool tools and two major accessories have found a home in the Untidy Shop. My 'dealer', if he knew, would pay specific tribute here to Paul M, Peter P,  Peter H, Seth and Kev.  He could also thank SittingElf, but I stopped trying to keep up with Frank long ago!  [smile]

I have also obtained two Festool shirts, and a ruler thanks to competitions publicised on the FOG, but sadly no tools. Still one lives in hope next time. Perhaps a K A P . .!    [wink]

But my biggest appreciation is to the three gentleman that make the FOG work as efficiently and effectively as it does - Shane, Peter H and Seth.

And to the author of every post I have read - Thank You.

That's a heck of a posts per day ratio! Are you fingers getting shorter from typing? [big grin]

Gotta love the metric debates - I've held off telling our north American friends about our Queenslanders and how they prefer Celsius because Fahrenheit makes it too hot .. or did I just do that?

Congratulations - and nice tribute to the admins, who surely deserve it!

!,000 posts in a bit more than a year? I don't think that's excessive...

Agreed with Wayne.  Of course he doesn't think 1,000 posts in a year is excessive, he did that in his first 90 days!  [poke]

According to your profile, you are averaging just over two post per day.  Doesn't sound like a lot......

On the humorous side.....  You've logged over 24 DAYS on this forum since joining.  Just a small fraction of that time applied to your, uh, nickname on the forum would result in having to change it to TidyShop, TidyMan, etc......  Just saying.  :)

Congratulations for this 1000th post!

Leave many message or not, it's not the most important. But do it with his heart and passion seems important.
I know there are always those who know more than we do, thanks to them we can learn, and there are those who know less than us, and that we must give our help and our support.
I'm new to the forum, and my english is very very average I'll do in the weeks ahead rather observe and learn from you all!

Festool brings us many things, as I said elsewhere, Festool for me is the starting point for many things.
Projects of course, but in my case, to seek ways to do better with tools that are already very successful!
But our needs each of us are different.

In my case, for now I already limit instead! Workshop very small. and basically the place that I have is always on my table next to two MFT / 3.
The 3rd side is instead applied to my darling who is working on a jigsaw Excalibur.
The 4th side being inaccessible.
But you get there ...

In any case I am happy to have met this forum with this brand I love is Festool.

Metric / Imperial ... The important thing is to do something that gives us happiness. The rest is just a story to adapt. Since my video 190 I decided to make French and English for those who do not understand French so I find it normal to be easier to convert measurements in Imperial to have measurements in Imperial and Metric, and I am simplifying things for everyone ...
Still a long work that will be making the pages of my site too small in 2 languages ​​... But again we will get there!

So the key is to participate and so as you say critics will teach us better, more accurate, and see a autrements things to do certain achievements. For it is in sharing what we learn and we can challenge ourselves to go even further.

American friends, Canadian Friends, English friends and other enthusiasts Festool take either of you, and I say to you soon.

Eric

1000 posts! Man I've got a long way to go.  I have learned so much from being on this forum that I could type a book.  Keep up your post and I'll learn a lot more.

Thanks,
