    Thanks for everything you do Ryan. Merry Christmas from Midland too. How I've never met you around these parts blows my mind.

    Merry Christmas Ryan to you and your family, and thank you for the HAMB. In the past year and a half I've learned more here, and had more fun, than anywhere else on the web. God bless.

    I never thought I'd be a forum kind of guy but the HAMB is the first thing I think of when I wake up and the last thing I see before I go to bed. It's changed my life.

    Thank you Ryan and Merry Christmas to all.

  6. Thanks Ryan! I am on here every day, sometimes for hours sometimes for a brief few minutes several times a day. But its my favorite forum!

    Congratulations, Ryan!

    You're still young, and you've achieved what some say is man's highest calling: you've touched the lives of others in a positive way.

    Not only that, you're achieved it doing what you want to do. Very good job. We should all aspire to something like this.

    Happy Holidays (being politically correct here!) to you and everyone on the HAMB.

    Not all the best ideas come from billion dollar research firms. Steve Jobs started in a garage, and you started at the dining room table. Having the passion for something along with the ability to share it with others is a very powerful tool.

    I found TJJ from doing research of my own back in late '01/ early '02, and spent a lot of time drooling over the photos you'd post in your articles, and that's about the time I noticed a little chat board that I just HAD to lurk in...

    Grats on 17- I think you might be on to something :)

    Thanks Ryan. This site is awesome. The best part of this site, it gives me inspiration, technical information, and ideas for my projects. I look forward to every Friday for the FAS.

    Lots of talent on this site and thanks to you, it is accessible to everyone. Well done, keep up the fantastic work.
  13. Ha!
    Remember when you sucked?

    If it wasn't for the "Big Blue Car" I may never have found this place.

    Merry Christmas kids!

    I was late to the party but I'm still glad I made it. Way to go on 17. I remember being 17..... As long as I had half a tank of gas and could score some beer I felt like king shit. Now I'm almost 30 and I think damn I could use a beer and how am I gonna pay for the next half tank of gas?
