The Big Introduction Thread!

Post by Jeepsnguns » Fri Aug 17, 2007 9:58 pm

The original "Getting to know you" was a tremendous thread that spanned several years.
I hate that it was lost due to the recent hacking.
With permission from Moe and moderators and senior members I would love to resurrect the thread and see it start all over.
Name, age, occupation, hobbies, favorite gun, education etc. in no particular order.

With all due respect, would you all allow me to start it back up?

Name: Jon
Age: 50
Occupation: Engineering; plumbing systems designer for health care facilities for the last 23 years.
Hobbies: Reading, landscaping, reloading, shooting with my son.
Favorite guns: Big ones, Little ones, Black ones, Shinny ones, I love em all.
Current canine: "Happy" The idiot Beagle
Education: A couple of years in community college continually changing majors so basically ending up with nothing.
The only degree I have is from the School of Hard Knocks.

With all the backups that were made, are the original threads actually not to be found on any backup anywhere?

I have the backup of the Friday before the hack attack but it won't restore. LZ thinks the php software is damaged.
