Mike will be in charge of theG by the evening of 2/16/2020. Please be kind, he will be in a steep learning curve.

I do want to thank you all for my retirement fund, it was a pleasant surprise. I promise I will spend it for something crazy fun...

I will stay in touch and hope everyone has a great year.

Thanks again for all your years of support.

As a "Frame Shop manager" new hire at JA nearly 20 yrs ago, I was obsessed with TG. without that early foundation of quality knowledge from so many, I would not be the framer I am today.
THANK you BIll...and enjoy your next chapter.

This is such a fantastic resource with decades of experience and generously shared information. This wealth of information is easily searched as a reference tool. I have learned SO much about the industry as a result of this forum, and it must continue.

This is all thanks to Bill's vision and hard work.

We have some REALLY big shoes to fill. :)

In the not so distant future, we will be migrating to a new server, but details will follow when testing/training is complete and a time schedule has been determined. Downtime should be minimal. When this happens, we will be switching from HTTP to HTTPS (encrypted) web connections, and it's likely that you may have to log in again with your username and password. If you have it saved in your browser, it's likely that it won't work with the new web address and you will have to manually provide the info again. It's a good time to locate the password and make a note of it, for that day. If you don't know, you'll be able to click a link to have the system reset it. There will also be a team of volunteers generously donating their time to answer emails, if anyone has trouble. More on all this later.

Thank you, Bill, for all your hard work and dedication. I have used and recommended The Grumble since I first heard of it and still refer back to the archives on a regular basis. Enjoy retirement!

Thank YOU, Bill! The relocated secondary server worked like a champ at 4am this morning, and did it's thing.
