    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    On Monday 06 April 2015, I will be moving back to Seattle, WA. (Where I am originally from). Which means that I will be out of commission for a while (I am not exactly certain for how long). @zathros will be the main Administrator in charge and will be taking over and covering for me while I am getting settled.
    With that being said, I will pop in from time to time, but I will not be able to do much until I am able to get things settled.
    So I am asking EVERYONE, if you have any problems, please contact either @zathros or one of the other moderators.
    Once I am fully back online, I will make any announcement.

    Thank you all for your cooperation and understanding.

    Have a safe, and uneventful trip. What I mean is that I hope everything goes the way you plan with no surprises. Be careful, and good luck!

    I'm always the "Main" Administrator, Rhaven is the guy who does all the work, and makes the forum "alive". I am happy Rhaven is coming home, and I personally look forward to the that day he steps on homeland soil. Rhaven enabled me to be able to stop having to be such a prick, and working so hard. I ran this forum virtually single handed for 3 years His ability to bring people together, get in there and model has allowed me to work further in the background. I will never forget the day I asked him to be a Moderator. He seemed to be such a logical candidate, yet he was shocked I asked him to be a moderator. That kind of genuine modesty, coupled which excellent ability, has proven that Rhaven is the right person for the job. We do play good cop, bad cop, (Guess who's the bad cop, heh heh heh............both of us!), and this has allowed us to pluck out the weeds, and set the seeds to grow a forum that stands out on the internet. There are no fights here. It is peaceful here. People share here. People like being here. These are the P.M.'s we get all the time. Ultimately though, it is you who have made it this way. We have done a little housecleaning in the last couple of weeks, as we are proactive. No need to let problems occur, when you see them coming, snuff them out. :fight::rage::punch::muted::Drinks:

    Rhaven and I SKYPE a few times a week and discuss all of you. This kind of communication, with the help of our strong moderating team, Padre, Bulldogowner, our SPAM snipers, and Silveroxide, and ASCMcLaren, who are always on the look out, Silveroxide, with his endless expertise, and recently, Ron Caudillo, who is a living legend in this hobby, and an inspiration to this forum, a Jewel in Zealot's crown! ASCMcLaren, eagle eying all aspects of the forum have brought so much t0 this forum. I know if my medical condition finally catches up to me, I have left you in good hands. This forum has taken on a life of it's own, and Rhaven and I are privileged in being able to act as guarantors of this society here, keeping out those would try and destroy or cause trouble because of their personal self loathing, inability to fit in, or because they are just plain jerks. We try to keep them out, so that you may flourish, in peace, express yourselves, in peace, and ultimately be at peace when you Log on here. It seems to be working, and with our I.T., Chrissy, working so hard to keep the technical side working, and the new Xenforo software package, paid for, and given to us by CrowdGather. ZEALOT is a modern, relevant forum, welcome to all who know how to behave themselves in a manner consistent with the norms that society has put in place. Or, easier stated, as a place for "Normal People". I know I have left out people, such is the manner of summations, but I do not forget the fantastic, wonderful, caring members, who are ZEALOT, for whom without, there would be nothing except a "Page not found". :)

    Of course, this person, whom I would love to add to the Moderator list. I really hope he finally take me up on the standing offer. So many are admirers of his work, his good heart, his pulse, which vibrates through the forum, how can you help but not be a revelling fan of someone like this? :rolleyes:

    Wow, May 1st... That's a bank holiday in Germany (our Labor Day). The Avengers are launching. And I'm having my BD... BAD time for moving..! ;)

    I had a small crew when I moved from a place I lived, they had a small place to hide when it came day to move too. No more "free" T.V. repairs, or free T.V's for that matter, or could you weld this or that for me. Nope, all that ended. Except for two people who worked so hard, I showered them with stuff over the next year. When you have a repair shop, many people do not want to pay to have their $1000 dollar surround sound system fixed for $185, so I end up being given it in exchange for their not paying the diagnoses fee. I always told my customers my intent, virtually all were happy it was being re-purposed. It then becomes mine. I fix it. I do much bartering. :)
