It's been a great ride! I have enjoyed, I have learned, i have shared and I have made lifelong friends here.
Thanks to all of you who have been here in one way or another!

It was early '99 when I found this forum. I was hooked from the get-go!

Can't begin the describe how much I've learned from others, and loved sharing what knowledge I could.

Best of all, some real, deep and lasting friendships were formed here. Kudos!!! Thanks Deb, for the vision...!

Mark, Al, and Mario were huge reasons for when I got hooked on MIMF about 13+ years ago!?!

Anyways, thanks guys!

I'm a relative newcomer here, but it has become my first and last stop of the day on the interweb.
I have found the people here all ready to share knowledge, encourage, and give opinions. Sometimes good, and occasionally a bit roughly.

The moderators all do a pretty good job too. Thanks guys!
I need your help. I can't possibly make all the mistakes myself!

I guess I'm late to the party, but that applies to most things in my life. Anyway, I found you guys in 2002 after doing some "Yahooing" in the pre-Google days. As others have said, I can't begin to describe the amount I have learned here. There are other luthiery forums out there, and of course Faceboob, but the MIMF is still the best. Nothing else compares. Cheers to another 20 years!
