Rich and Brian handed me a shovel and bucket when I started. Now I know what it's for! :lol:


Thanks again, everyone!

Congratulations, Chuck. I was just wondering, where do you stand on the issue of neo-retroism versus the more aggressive forms of post-futurism? (and keep that bucket handy)

Jeez, Fred, you sound like Vivian Sobchack. I took a class from her decades ago, and knew her husband Tom.

I'd be happy living in a wilderness cabin in Alaska, so I really have no opinion on that subject worth discussing.

Fred, have you read any of Dick Proenneke's journals?

Highly recommended if you are into wilderness living.

I'm sorry Chuck but if you cannot keep on topic I'm going to have to lock this thread! (just kidding :roflmao:)

I'm making light of it here, but let's face it, most of us tend to allow a conversation to drift a little bit. I think the Mods do a good job of allow it a little bit, but then bring the thread around to it's original topic eventually. Each thread has a central topic and would lose their value if left to drift. Like this one is! You better lock it! :lol:

Like actual face-tp-face conversations, some freedom and spontaneity is a requirement, as long as it wanders back to the centerline. I think maybe in some cases a new thread topic could be mandated, after the fact, and a break made. Computers work good for that kind of thing.

(speaking of which) I wasn't aware of Dick Proenneke and thanks for pointing that out. That's certainly taking things to an extreme, but I have been on a hand-tool kick for a while. Some nice touches on that cabin. In stark contrast to that, I actually heard someone use the word "neo-retroism" on a local radio station yesterday (city planning). Civilization!

Congratulations Chuck. I think this is the most realistic group of astronomers out here you're overlooking now. So it should be an easy task.

I started this thread because it looked like Chuck was trying to "fly under the radar" regarding his new position.

Moderators perform a needed, and mostly thankless function.

In that vein, I respectfully ask that any further posts here remain with that thought in mind.

It appears this thread is coming near to the end. Yet, if you wish to add to the conversation; any offers of thanks, congratulations, or perhaps sympathy :grin: will fit here.

Other topics might best be discussed by other threads, or with the PM feature.

Thank You, and Thanks again Chuck!

Congrats, Chuck!
We can never say that the Classic Telescopes forum doesn't have some Classy Moderators! (Well, we could say it...but it won't do us any good! :lol: )
Seriously, we glad to have you added to keep this wild and crazy group in line!
