I have to agree. Sort of feel like the forum punching bag. But, that's okay when it makes someone (tnt) else feel better.

I've met with several members who were on the more-serious side of business and it is weird how people can be so different than what I expected by what they write and the way they write.

I find there are large gaps between the useful knowledge that members ask for and the lack of actions that are implemented.

No offense intended, but that may be a perceptual issue on your part. Over many years online, without exception I've found people who I met in person after knowing them digitally for six months or more turned out to be pretty much exactly as I expected.

Except for their faces sometimes.

Re: Meeting Fellow Members


Kiss of forum death , Talked with BamBamm he re-roof my Mom's house and met Oconocowoc after hiring to do some plumbing. Both up in Wisconsin.


BamBamm was exactly what I expected. Mike ... very sharp plumbing contractor and even better business man. Tho by looking at him, you'd think he was a Texas Bubba transplanted up nort.

I was in the same boat, I applied for clearance but with a new baby my request for leave was quickly shot down.

I'm going to ISC West April 10-13 in Vegas, if anyone else is around I'll buy em a beer.

Re: Meeting Fellow Members


I used up all my "vacation" days on scheduling the first attempt in September and then a second trip in October. When the CT trip got moved to October, it was deemed to be too much PTO in a one month period, and I was forced to use my days later in the year.

Dem's da breaks.

Can't wait for the fall meetup this year. Last year overlapped with another trip I had, but if someone throws some dates out for this year, I'll pencil it in right now.

Lol, unlike you I don't hide who I am, what my business name is and where I live. I have met many people in person and they do say I am not at all who they thought I was, but I don't waiver in my position or disposition when it comes to the same subjects discussed in person. Anyone who knows me in person, knows I argue just as much and as hard as I do in person. In fact, I just had a really nice argument over liberal ideas and values with my number 1 employee. He is a hard leftist, but a damn good man and worker.

But that is what you get when you get someone like me who doesn't hide behind anything at any time. You know what you are getting and you don't have to guess.

The other difference in person is time. You have a lot more time for chit chat and getting to know you. Forums lend to a quick answer with little time for chit chat.

Nice try PC.

I'm sure everyone on here pumps their tires a little harder online than they do in real-life.

Except Blacktop and NYGG, I think they are the only two who are brutally honest.
