Wow! Thank you. Makes a nice ending to a nice Saturday.
I still keep an eye on the field, but from a great distance. I left the forum for all practical purposes a long time ago, when it became thoroughly unpleasant. By that time, however, I had very little to contribute anymore. It was no great loss, either to the forum or to myself.
These days, I write poetry.
It's just as exciting as jet engines, but much quieter.
Contra, my friend your contributions to this forum has bridged a gap between friends.

Even if just one, you have inspired me. “And back from the dead at that”
My aim is to inspire, rather than teach. My goal is to demonstrate that jet power is
accessible to everyone in a great variety of simple ways. Should you find the inspiration?
plenty of information on the practical steps towards jet power will be available elsewhere.
So, this is no small miracle. I’m in my late 50’s and not many people inspire me anymore.
I can understand why you chose the path you did, when it is no longer fun why do it. I have decided that in life, one has control over only one self, and no other. So for me I’ve made a concuss decision to focus on the good and healthy things in live. I don’t fault or judge you. I try to find good in everyone.
Mine is not a glass house. I am not a proud man. I am not a big and important man, nor am I a wise man. I stand on the earth as many men. And when it rumbles beneath my feet, I’m humbled to find how small and how little my part is in this world. So, what I learn is mine to keep or share. I chose to share. If I can inspire but one, my chalice is full.
You won’t find that quote anywhere, I’m a bit of a poet myself.
I’m not offering you advice, just know that what you consider as “nothing to contribute anymore” simple is not true.
