    Damn Steve, it hurts to hear that from another member. I hope this only turns out to be a change in direction for you beginning with a small vacation.

    I may be interested in the 636 in the melles module.
    Love, peace, and grease,

    Sorry to hear that steve-o
    The only thing I'll say is you never know what's round the corner, so unless you have really made up your mind, just hold off flogging stuff you may later regret.

    Hopefully something will come up soon...

    Whoa... That's really bad news Steve, so sorry to hear that

    It's strange sometimes how life takes it's little twists and turns, and I can only hope that this turns into a great opportunity for you. I've experienced times in my life when things looked really bad, but something has always happened that turned the sadness around.

    I truly hope that this happens for you and that everything works out without causing you too much pain along the way. We're feeling for you and you have our very best wishes (if that helps).

    Cheers, and try to keep smiling.

    Yeah sorry to hear that Steve. Economy is so screwed at the moment, but no doubt things will pick up and hopefully you'll find something again soon.

    Sorry to hear that, Steve-O. Keep your chin up though - it's an election year. The economy almost always rebounds after an election! Like Aaron said, maybe this is the start of a new direction for you (albeit with a brief, unplanned vacation first).

    Stay in touch buddy...
