I have been on the forum since 2001.
This forum has helped me in several way...too many to list here.
Other than the good friend and overall camaraderie...here is 2 major things this forum had done for me.
1) This post...
I bought Brandon's LT-777.
2) Not one particular post, but...
If it were not for the forum I would have spent 1000's of hours on the phone with SCC, Future Graphics, (SEE THIS
), Summit, Uninet
, (SEE THIS
)...etc. I have not had to phone those companies for a problem because of the association I have on the forum.
As I see it those companies owe a huge, massive debt of gratitude to these forums. I know for a fact it would have cost some of those companies thousands of dollars, in lost productivity, phone bills, tech training...etc, answering my questions alone.
I would have stopped using some of these companies because there is a very good chance they could not have helped me solve all the issues I had, and I would have believed it was there products fault.
The 4-5 big supply companies should hire Evan to maintain this site. $10,000 to $15,000 each per/year, would be a bargain. Just think what would happen if this site closed down for 1 month.
