    For those of you that haven't been paying attention, :) jon Monon has found that his life has become too busy, for him to do his Moderator duties on The Gauge..... :( :(

    jon, like all the moderators that worked under Shamus, then Shamus & I and now, me alone, are a great bunch of people!! :D As I said before and will say time & time again.. we do not get paid, we are all volunteers..... and to have such a bunch of dedicated people here, only because they have an admiration for a hobby, is astounding!!!

    The Mods spend an average of 30 minutes a day here answering e-mails and making sure every visitor & Member with a complaint or problem is rewarded with our kindness & help. I average about 2 hours a day here - just looking out for everything that is happening & making sure my forums are ok (Moded by The Gauge)

    So we didicate an average 7 Hours a week, (me 14) to make your every visit a cheerful one.....

    It is with great pleasure, and some sadness, I announce jon's replacement on The Technical Q & A forum:


    Please welcome him, with joy and hope for a great future, as you all did jon and I when we took these Mod positions.. :D :D

    Thanks folks, yeah, it's gunna be tough to fill Jon's shoes. But with some patience and understanding from everybody (maybe even some help from Jon now and then), I might be able to do a fraction of what he has contributed here. ;) I will try my best. :wave: :wave:

    Thank you once again my friends, one and all. I'm really glad to be here in spite of the fact that Pete is going to be getting twice what I make as a mod. :cry: I turned down that pay raise for fear that it might put me in a higher tax bracket. :D :D The good news is that Pete has to buy the next round... :wave: :thumb:

    Thanks for the welcome and support. I just found out about the benefit package that the mods get, and hey, it pales in comparison to the pay. Why, there's a train show and swap meet in Phoenix this weekend and as a mod on the Gauge, I can get in for only $6.00. :cool: What's that you say, the regular price of admission is $5.00? :eek: Hmm, I'm gunna have to check into this and get back with you. :wave: :wave:
