It's our anniversary, and I always say that a forum is only as good as it's members!  Since we have such great members, it is time to take a moment and try to check in with those of you that haven't been around for a while!

Even if you can't come back full time, we'd all appreciate you stopping in, saying hi and letting us know how you are doing!

Every one of you has had a part in building this place into what it is, and I'd love to hear from you all!  Don't make me start naming names!   :pok:

Hey gang!  :waving: I seem to be turning into one of those members who is guilty of going MIA, then coming back, then going MIA again, then coming back again...

Life has been busy, but I do check in on this place once in awhile. :D I still do plenty of custom Leatherman mod projects... maybe TOO many, since I am currently trying to catch up on a backlog of projects. :whistle:

My collecting has slowed significantly, but I still have a strong love for all things MT-related, and of course for this fine forum. :cheers:

Thanks for including a link to this thread in the email newsletter, Def! :cheers:

I've cut my online time drastically, but I do try and keep up with threads here.  I might not post much anymore, but I do still enjoy seeing what's going on. :)

I am around,  and drop in very little due to demands on my time. 
My full time job has gotten much harder because my co-worker retired, and I am doing both jobs
I teach a class one night a week, but it is 75 miles from my house one way.
I am a full time student (online) and the coursework is very tough, since most classes are certification exams.

this is still the best place on the internet, with just one negative, makes you want things you did not even know about the day before.

If I can help, let me know

I've here since late 2007, although I've never been a heavy poster. I still enjoy the forum quite a bit, and don't plan on retiring anytime soon.

Great to see you all back!  I know I keep in touch with some of you on Facebook, but it's still great to see you posting where you really belong! 

I get that life gets busy, and I am not looking to take any more of your time than anyone is willing to give, but I will say that I appreciate you guys stopping in to say Hi!  :D

You do know that you don't have to wait for en email reminder to log in though!  :pok: :P

Hi :)

Sadly, I had to stop collecting, but I could focus on what I have bought.
from time to time I return to this forum to lurk and be kept in the loop... and not only about what tool I am missing.
come for the tools, return for the people :)

I never applied for any badge, it's my biggest regret :D

Welcome back Simone!  Great to see you!

I have been wondering how you were doing lately!  I have been working on a project with an Italian multitool manufacturer lately and it has made me wonder what you (and other Italian members) have been up to!

Do Italian multitool manufacturers EXIST?  :o

Feel free to ask for anything, if I can be of help, I'll be glad to "pay back" all the good tips I had from you all.

In that case, who would win in a fight between Captain Kirk and the Smurfs?  :D

And yes, at least one does exist, although I can't say too much about it right now, at least until we figure out what/how we are going to do together.  :D

Smurfs, sadly.
They can infiltrate GNDN ducts, unbalance ramscoop, sabotate the Enterprise without kamikaze actions.
Smurfette is nor a major nor a charismatic member of the tribe, seducing her would be useless.

God forbid a Smurf-Tribble alliance.
