Title: low who? lowtech? Yeah, maybe read some boring old posts from way back...
Post by: lowtech on February 03, 2019, 02:51:25 PM
It´s been quite a while!
I hope you are well.
How is the Boss behaving?  :D
Maybe some of the older members still remember my Nick and my ramblings.

I guess I will have a lot to read after nearly 3 years of absence...
Need to check out what Photobuckets messed up business plans did to my pics here and get into one or the other thread derailing over in the Tools section.

I have 3 kids by now, 2 Jobs, life is full and stressful but rewarding.

I did miss you folks over here and I think I will check back regularly again...

You can read this as a threat or a promise, either way you want.  ;)

Best regards, see you later folks!
Thomas

Well howdy lowtech, its great seeing you back.  I'm guessing you're still into Gshocks, motorbikes, and now?  3 kids?  I see you have been busy.  Super glad you made it back around our way.  Welcome back my friend.

Is the Boss still behaving?

(https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0580/0973/products/Bruce_Springsteen_The_Boss_2048x2048.jpg?v=1475695367)

To be honest, I am not sure what Springsteen is doing these days, but i am sure that if I had his money and Courtney Cox' personal phone number I'd probably be up to little good....

 >:D

Great to see you man- I hope all is well with you!

Welcome back... you did not miss much, the only excitement we got was this year, when LM changed their Logo. In summary, most were  :ahhh some where (http://i.imgur.com/nqRhPWz.gif) (https://imgur.com/nqRhPWz), others more like :fugly:, few where  :viking:, and the rest was  :dunno:

Tell us more about the rugrats...

Reading between the lines, I think he has adopted Mechanickal for one of them.
That might explain those trips to Germany...

Hey Guys!
You are much kinder than I do deserve for being away for years without even a postcard...
Good to read so many old names. From reading a bit I see thread derailing is still THE thing around here, isn´t it?!

In short:
Got 3 Kids by now (4,5, y old boy, 3 y old girl and another boy, now 6 months old)
Since about 2 years ago we have a Dacia Dokker as our family car - suits our needs as well as my Nick I guess.
Most of our day to day transportation is done with one of our Cargo bikes - They are faster on typical city routes, we and the kids enjoy them and as they are Pedelec (electrically assisted) they are not harder to ride than a normal bike.
I still do work as a janitor/facility manager as a full time job and have a side job as "jack of all trades"/janitor in the "Spielewerkstatt", an organization doing vacation activities, festivities, arts and play courses on a regular basis and open paedagogic offers for kids in social focal points.
My shop had to move inside the building complex from 40 to around 17 square meters, it is now crammed full close to being unuseable, I have no time to organize, let alone work in it so it will be cleared this year. I am planning shelves in our flat´s small cellar that can at least fit all teh tools, most of teh shop furniture, bigger machines and spare parts will have to go.

And: I did miss you, too!

PS: DKS, of course there are always watches for sale...  :D

When I was at primary school it was considered a joke to ask another boy to say "Marbles are red" slowly.  ::)
