    How many of you will come forward and admit that you are addicted to the Wall? I am one of them and you all have a good weekend...

    I can give it up

    anytime I want. I do not have a problem, I think it is YOU who has the problem.. I do not smoke, do drugs... so leave me alone....

    I practice saying that in the mirror. :)

    Are you freak'n kidding.....

    This is my ONLY fix! Everyone else, including my spouse, thinks I'm nuts. No one to talk to about cool stuff...it is tough.

    I worked for 4 months in hydronics...then went back to designing temperature controls (money was a issue). I am still regretting that move. If I had stuck with it I would have almost 10 years experience by now. At least I get to read about all of the new stuff...everyday...OK, a couple of times a day.

    Thanks to everyone for keeping me somewhat sane.

    I try. I really do try, but it is so difficult. Maybe tomorrow. Yes, that's it. I'll quit tomorrow. I'll have to start slowly and then ...

    Which one are you referring to? I, for one, find it a proffesional obligation. What's this addiction all about, anyway????????????? But, then, I can come up with a lot of excuses for anything.

    So much easier now with the new Tekmar implants

    No longer have to be tied to a keyboard. Dan's discount sure helped. Excuse me got to go, new threads just opened on OTT and Radnet.

    I for one. Just visited a college campus with my daughter and she joked at how I was admiring the pipes:)

    I gave it up,

    once for about 4 years.

    I came back to make sure what I learned here and was doing is still OK.

    Now my hair is gray and my hands hurt. I limp too.

  • Hello;

    My name is wrenchpuller and I am a Wallahoulic.

    Have been almost as long as Dan H. himself.

    Oh, I've come and gone; seen a lot of others do the same. Seen a lot of changes.

    One step at a time......

    we all are

    I am checking the wall before calling it a night.

    Yeah, well...

    I quit every time I shut down the computer.

    Seriously, I can justify visiting often [work with me here] cuz I learn so much. I was able to trouble shoot a commercial steam system that was Webster Vacuum (still webster, no vacuum) and a boiler corrosion problem due to chlorite water contamination with knowledge gathered here and nowhere else.

    Frequent visits to the Wall can make you look like a genius to the client! Or in my case, a gifted eccentric.

    Thats the ticket. Eccentric, not addicted! mmmmm... Steam pipes....

    is such a harsh term. I've been "in the field" for 35 years and have been lurking here for a long time. What better place to spend your time, enjoying the company of others that have a passion for the same things you do. I don't care how many boilers I start up, after repair or replacement, I never get tired of walking around feeling the pipes and the radiators warm up. Warm ductwork? Who cares!!!!
