I'm not so sure he's surfing other social media sites. I seem to remember him saying he was taking a break from the web as he felt it was consuming far too much of his time. I wish he'd just moderated his time spent, rather than truncating it. Anyhoo, I hope he's enjoying whatever he's doing.

I don't believe that once humans engage in social media, it is so easy to seperate oneself from this dynamic medium. Particularly, for those, like "Steve" who actually find themselves moderating sites.

The abilty to touch others with one's ideology and personality, particularly anonymously, is intoxicating. Throw in the opportunity to receive likes, loves, kudos, thanks, and other forms of pats on the head, who wouldn't want to participate?

This is why any respectable forum would never have me as a mod.

And let's not forget the unsettling number of negative attention seekers. We here know who "they" are.

I don't think there are any others. I think the so called Steve only posts on Facebook and then only rarely. I also believe it was old Bill all along

Meh. Nothing too awful exciting in the painting world. Even keel, I say. I was doing some pre-assembly work today for some emergency plumbing fixtures in a funeral home embalming room that we are remodeling, but I doubt that is of much interest here.

I harvested a small four-point whitetail on Tuesday, but again, not really related to painting.

I may at some point rebuild the control board on my broken Airlessco, which may be of some interest.

Something that could be of interest: Last year I joined the local chamber of commerce. I've been attending the 'Business after hours' functions and it has worked pretty well. At the last event, I won one of the door prizes, which was a feature in the business spotlight...chamber newsletter and local newspaper. I've gotten 3 solid leads, landed one, and probably more in the pipeline. For next summer, signed and delivered. The one signed now is more than worth the membership fee. I'm in a small town, so it probably won't carry as much weight in a larger area, but it has been good for us.

I've ordered more accessories for my Big Green Egg...perhaps of interest when I cook the next piece of meat.

There's only so much someone can talk about.

You're right. A real barn stormer. J/k!

Sounds like you stay pretty active. That's got to make your life interning at least.

I went on a mountain hike Thanksgiving day. Best thing I've done in a while next to developing my HVAC/R knowledge. I've become EPA 608 certified and I'm ready to go for some hands on training.

I moderate a couple of hockey groups on Facebook along with keeping up on my own personal FB page...and it is REALLY time consuming . I still come and read here and research some stuff as needed .

I had some trouble with my email accounts and Cricket fixed me up today....so I likely will drop around more often . I have been in the business for 32 years but the amount of stuff some on here know just blows me away...Take care folks and Happy New year.

Things have been slow on here. I just thought it was the upcoming xmas, post xmas, upcoming new year, we got no $ new year thing that happens every year. I know that doesn't affect everyone on here, so it can't totally be that.

I agree that Richards was an alter ego of DaArch...just like CD is.

Anyway, Ole, Oden and Ewing certainly helped around here.
