Why I started Arbtalk

Recommended Posts

Very interesting life journey, Steve. Arbtalk is a rich source of information and a great contribution to the industry.
I’ve met some great people on here that have become good friends and I’ve learned loads from spending time on here.
Thanks.

Well done Steve and thank you!

 

Is there potential for a general  "Life Story " thread?

I think there was one a while ago. I was trying to find it to add the link to my blog in originally

A good idea, although a few Arbtalk members aren't going to (for good reason) tell it as it was.

I'm looking forward to hearing about how Vespasian beat up Lenny McLean, Roy Shaw and Ronnie Pickering all with one hand tied behind his back.

October 2010 I joined (in my first incarnation) 

 

Its a funny business in many ways because unlike trades that are more common, like builders, we don’t get the chance to network much or regularly talk shop with others.

 

This goes double for me isolated out here.

 

So when the internet threw this place up on a google search for the burn ability of a sort of wood, I immediately dived in. 

 

I have learnt all sorts, fixed stuff myself I could never have managed beforehand, made some friends, been entertained  and entertained others (hopefully)

So thanks to Steve for that (and my new website btw)

 

What the future holds for these forums, what with FB looking to take all this into their greedy grasp, I don’t know, but I hope there’s always room for this place.

 

Anyway, 6pm here, time for a glass.
