Wow, Thanks for all the warm welcomes!!!!Great gang here, glad I joined... now I have to do a little bit of replies to a bunch of posts, so here goes:
The hosting service was moving all of their accounts to a new server and ran into some problems - the site was down for about a week. All is good now :)
Thanks for the welcome!!! CNY is where I am, so I am indeed in the snow belt :) Waiting for warmer weather to give it a go (but not necessarily until all the snow melts!)- since i've got an un-modified ECB, and I have serious doubts that I'll be able to keep it up to temp.
I'm in Northern Cayuga County - that snowy "north of the Thruway" area. My sister and her family live up near Watertown Center area, so we get up 81 whenever we can to go visit. Thanks for the welcome!
It's a small world!!!! I grew up on the good old Northside of Corning, graduated from East High in '83. Did a 6 year hitch in the Navy and returned to NY where I eventually settled here near the south shore of Lake Ontario!!!!
The rest of the gang... Thanks again for the warm welcomes. I've already taken Jeff's 5 day course and found it EXTREMELY helpful. I actually think I might even be successful the first time I fire up my shiny new ECB!!!!
