    Default Hey Hey Hey, look who's back!

    Its been a while since I came here, I am glad to see my good old friends still doing well.
    Been extremely busy with the little guy, he's 7 years old now, excelling in hockey may I add
    So my life has been revolving around his schedule and my wife's demands to keep a the house clean and the yard looking great at all times.

    Still editing video's here and there using my Matrox MXO2, just personal stuff, like Aikido seminars and company related events. Ton of old VHS tapes that I am converting to mpegs.

    I was promoted to senior instructor at our dojo, so I'm excited about that, been teaching for a while ,which helps me grow and learn even more.

    Other than that, all is good here.
    Hope you are all doing good as well.

    Cheers!

    Nice to hear from you!

    Our kids are all professionals now, and our grandson is in college pursuing a medical sciences degree and a lovely young geology student. I have a feeling he will pursue her until she catches him.

    Hey, great to hear an update.
    Just a few old-timers remain here...

    I got married 2 years ago, became D. Sc., but other than that not much has changed...

    Congrats VJ!
    I see this Forum has quieted down a bit. Is Doc not heavily active any more?
    My two older kids are in University, one in Biology and one in game design and production. Interesting times.
    Good to see people still active here.

    Doc used to post a lot of space-related updates... nice to have the updates, but now he hasn't posted in a while...

    Two kids at university... Where are the times when we ourselves were there. I think I've been on murc for almost 25 years... Still a bit of a shame it got so quiet here... I check almost every day and try to post some things every now and then.

    (If I come round to writing it, I may have a rant-post coming up on the replacement of a showerfaucet . It is a wild story, from malfunctioning main valves, delivery of a faulty tap, service visits and need for a virtually non-existent custom key to install it... Beware if you consider the Grohe GrohTerm 2000... umfriend will probably have some apartment related comments...)
