Thread: MBI - Welcome to the new sub-forum

  1. #1

    Default MBI - Welcome to the new sub-forum

    Hip hip, Hooray, a new sub-forum today

    Welcome finally to the MBI sub-forum

    Firstly, a HUGE thank you to the MBI tribe (that's probably you, reading this)

    ...for helping to make this a reality


    Eventually, this "new" sub-forum will be well aged at which time I may (or may not) update the title of this thread but for now, I thought I should at the very least post something to mark the occasion.

    As with all MBI threads, comments are always very welcome and I hope to add a few more threads in the near future (action shots, Q&A, ChitChat and anything else that may add fun and value).

    It's rather late in the night here already but I will aim to add to this post when I find a little time.

    or just....

    Thank you th8tredude
    yes, perhaps somewhat overdue,
    definitely proving far simpler to land at this destination.

    Thanks very much easilyled and that is very kind of you to say so.

    I'm definitely not perfect but I do constantly strive to improve so I can at the very least, aim to be better than I was yesterday.

    It seems like a magical 45 degree line (on a graph), that for every step I make to improve efficiency, I get exactly that amount busier so that my net gain in available hours is zero...

    I think it's homeostasis of sorts and the very bright and positive side of the coin is that, for every improvement I make, demand seems to magically grow to match it so that I'm always busy

    Thank you very much IsaacL,

    It is very exciting and at a super time.
    Looking forward to smokin' a few of those webservers (that host cpf) with buzz in the months ahead

    So that's where all the MBI threads went to. I've been glancing through the forum at work and did not see any MBI posts.

    Hi Crazyeddiethefirst,

    Thanks very much
    I do always try to be fast when other commitments permit but like most humans, I do sometimes have the odd lapse when I'm slammed with my dayjob or family things. Never too far away though.

    Hi the0dore3524!

    Guy and his many clones are busy with the MBI Matchlight crowdfunding project.
    He will definitely look into replenishing stock once he's settled with the Matchlights.
