Heads up, people: Effective as of Nov. 15, 2015, Michael J. Heinrich is no longer associated with Duffy Heavy Metal Industries, and will be stepping down as admin in the Duffy's Digs subforum as well.

 

Welcome new administrators for Duffy's Evil Lair, Heavy Metal Industries, and all things Duf, Matt Sheldon and Anthony Pryzbylowicz.

 

I've been working through some physical stuff for some years now - nothing at all life-threatening or such, just stuff that limits my hands to anything but a few seconds' use at a time. It's not getting any better and is actually gaining on me - and it has interfered significantly with my efforts to turn this stuff into a real proper biz. So I'm handing it all over to a fella who can actually get it going the way you will want it to.

 

It's been a ball, guys. Thanks for putting up with me, even the nubbly bits.

Not sure I understand it all, but I sense it's a good change.

 

We support, you, Michael.  :)

 

Just one question, who is this new guy, Anthony Pry, uh, Anthony P? :laugh2:

Very sorry to hear about the hand thing, Sir Duff. I truly know what you are going through. I wish you the best.

You, sir, are only allowed to address him as "Mr. Przybylowicz."

Somebody said he's a 'legendary' racer, but I think the better adjective is 'mythical'!

True but I wanted to use "ineffable" in a post on Slotblog so I took it. ;-)

I can relate to the hands thing. I've got arthritis in mine and some days I can't bend or cut piano wire!! Sorry for your struggles, hope it improves enough for you to at least continue to play with your own toys! 


She's real fine, my 409!!!
