    Hello, hello

    Hi this is Mechanic and if anyone might be interested I've been in this ft wayne hospital for over a month now. Prognosis does not look too good from here.
    My friend/ex-partner brought me this laptop so I can get a few things done on the net instead of throwing it all on the wife.
    I will pop in occasionally but just want to let my friends know why I disappeared. Thanks for the friendships over the years. They meant a lot to this old man.

    Thank you for checking in. Of course our prayers are with you.

    My extended time in the hospital was much more difficult than I could have ever imagined.

    Keep strong and take comfort in the positive effect of your thoughts and actions have had on others through your life. Your reach has been far more than you can know. 73 Mike

    Hey mechanic, I wish you all the best and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Hoping for all the best. Get well, take care of yourself. I have really learned some good stuff from some of your posts and have enjoyed reading them all. All the best to you and your family. I have had a time or two with extended stays in the hospital, not fun at all, just remember to watch those hands around the nurses. lol. All the best and God bless.

    Good to hear from you again, Mike. I was wondering where you were. Dont give up the ship, we can be stronger than we ever imagined when we need to. Hospitals can be the worst place in the world to be, but the laptop should help pass the time. Godspeed on your recovery, my friend!

    Best wishes to you and your family, youll be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Mech...no offense, you'll always be Mech to me.

    As the others have said...words can not express what I owe to you for all I've learned here. From scrapping a computer to just about anything else, I knew I could depend on you for an answer or a link when I saw you post. When I was walking the line you were there nudging me back to the side of not getting in trouble....for all that an more I thank you an call you friend. You were one of the first to join that list, an you'll always be there. I don't think your officially a Cooler Puller, but I think I speak for all the other ones when I say you are one..whether you like it or not.

    Now get better, I can't promise like Matador to be good, but I'll at lest try.

    Good luck my friend an hope to see you back soon keeping us in line an our heads full of knowledge.

    Sirscrapalot - You and I will meet again, When we're least expecting it, One day in some far off place, I will recognize your face, I won't say goodbye my friend, For you and I will meet again. - Tom Petty

    Hello, hello

    Hope you are back up and around again real soon. I wouldnt know half what I do about computers without your posts. A positive attitude may not be medicine but a negative one never healed anyone. Well wishes to you
