    Default Every forum has a "Steve"

    I mean this in the most positive way but...

    Every forum seems to have a Steve(mixedgas)! A delightfully grumpy pro that has practically touched every device in his field. There is a user on a pinball forum that I frequent and like Steve, this guy has seen and probably worked on them all. Not just worked on them but has worked on them enough to know specifics and has a documentation for EVERY DAMN ONE! As I was reading this guy's tutorial on how to completely restore a Williams System 6 machine, I kept thinking "Damn, is this Steve? It sounds like Steve!" lol

    I just gotta say, for all the "Steves" in the world, I raise my glass to you guys for sharing your knowledge, experiences and step-by-step instruction/tutorials with the rest of plebs that have not reached (and may never) the heights you have. These forum communities are amazing places because of people like you. A big "Thank you!"


    Cheers,
    Brian

    I'd mutter something, but how about just "Thanks"... In other news, Steve goes to forums which have a "Phil" and a "Chuck" and looks up to them. So I guess it is a discrete array of singularities...

    Hi Steve,

    yes - I'm too seeing some similarities to our reality (or better parallel universes) in the various internet forums!

    Some people are developing to "Qbits" and when connected, the skills and possibilities can/will evolve to even higher dimensions

    So from me too a ... and maybe some days ...
