  • rest in peace

    Old friend of mine died today. We were together since about "93" if I remember correctly. We worked outages together, did B31.1 side by side some aerospace space work and a mega job for the US Army, mustard gas demilitariztion project. So many other smaller projects I can't recall.

    Maxstar 152 you will be dearly missed my friend.

                          It's just a machine. Believe me, I've burned up more machines, and more dollars in machines, than you will have ever owned. Buy a new one, and get over it.
                          Obviously, I'm just a hack-artist, you shouldn't be listening to anything I say .....

                            I wonder if it was circuitcide? Too bad they couldn't have done CPR. (capacitance phase realignment).

                              There have never been any alien autopsies. None of those secret military convoys at 2:00 am carried anything more than cheese.

                              The lights in the sky moving in inexplicable ways that millions of people including me have seen are the product of bad digestion affecting the brain.
