Hooray me! No more school for at least a year or two!

    Incidentally, this should free up a lot more time for making gear and generally enjoying hammocks (happy, Jeff? ) !
    Congrats, BB. Well done. Darn difficult degrees to get, so my hat's off to you.

    I've found that quite often, statistics are like ladies of the night...lay them down and you can do whatever you want with them.

    Just curious...has the subject of creating an "Off Topic" section of the Hammock Forum ever been considered. It seems like it would solve the only real problem I've seen here. Another forum I visit quite often has an Off Topic section which solved the same and much more rampant problem.

    D'oh! Now why didn't anyone think of that sooner?

    B/c the threads in the off-topic forum spill over into the other forums on the site. WB used to be (almost) all on-topic, then lots of off-topic, then there was the off-topic forum that helped for a little while, then they had to create the "straight forward" forum b/c there was so much off-topic stuff in the regular forums, and the subscription-only humor and politics forums, even though the politics stuff (or at least the anger in them) ends up in the regular forums. That's one reason some folks quit reading there.

    We DO have a non-hammock gear forum, though.
