    agreed, I am very excited, I was sad about HTT closing, but now it seems like all is well, we have the HTL to chat and the HTT e-zine to enjoy Mike's writting!

    I had a different reaction and opinion. Not as positive as others, but most likely in my nature.

    Ones opinions can not be challanged with an E-zine or Mag-zine as readily as can with a forum. But it is one way to reduce stress and regain enthusiasm for ones efforts.

    I wish Mike great success; his new E-Zine will be an excellent format for him to share his views in a stress-free environment.

    Yep, I think the E-Zine format will fit Mike's personality and allow him an outlet for his opinions and creative juices.

    I agree...I'm sad to see HTT go...but the e-zine sounds wicked...and it's a perfect outlet for Mike's knowledge without having to all of us crap all over it! :p

    Way to go Mike, I can't wait to read the first installment!

    I predict Mike's site will get a lot of traffic. Mike is very widely known and respected in this community and lots of folks will make it a regular habit to see what's new there. I know I will.

    Yeah this is the perfect venue for him...he can say whatever the heck he wants feeling safe that not a soul will be able to post a response to whatever it is he says...a very safe idea for him. :)

    Alfer:

    It's a free country and if that is what will make Mike happy (and I suspect it will), then that is precisely what he should do. It may not be an approach you would take, nor is it an approach I would take, but you and I are not Mike. Please bear in mind that he is not doing it for you or me; he is doing it for himself.

    If you wil be bothered by his new site, then just don't go there.

    Remarkably simple, isn't it?

    Larry did I EVER state the site was a BAD thing...??? NO!....I simply said that it will be much more easier on Mike to go this route because he won't have to deal with all the barbs he used to get via a forum whenever he stated his opinions.

    Sorry but I gotta use it: :roll:

    Alfer, do me a favor: Don't insult my intelligence.

    Sorry but this too deserves it because you SO have it wrong.... :roll:

    I await your apology on this bad assumption...

    Perfect fit for Mike. I wish him all the best with his efforts. Whatever makes him happy.

    I apologize, as I obviously misunderstood your intent. Sorry 'bout that.

    I think it will be a transitional thing for Mike. We all know how much he likes "treading the boards". :) He'll be back around and right as rain soon enough.

    At least I hope so...

    Larry, you are a bigger man then me.

    Thank you Larry....

    Thank you for the compliment John. One of the most important lessons I have learned in life is that it is actually far easier, and ultimately more productive, to admit a mistake than to go through contortions trying to prove you were right when it is obvious to everyone that you were not. Moreover - - and thi is especially true in the work place - - if you admit a mistake it is easy for colleagues (and bosses) to put it behind them and move on, whereas if you don't admit it, it will linger long after the mistake itself.

    For the record I wish Mike only the best in his new adventure and am very happy he found a better suited outlet for him. It will be a fun new read via my daily net surfing. :)
