Some of you know that my company is going out of business. I've been spending a lot of time trying to "land" another job. I got lucky and scored an interview on 9/27 and got hired a week later. I'm expecting a class date sometime in mid December.
Class is not easy. Its six weeks of class away from home, living in a hotel with a one week break then you go out to fly for around two weeks. I've got a lot of studying to do and am getting a head start now.
I'm pretty much going to be off the forum until February sometime once I'm flying the line.
I will do my best to answer any pms that are sent my way. Our mod team does a great job and can solve most problems. I don't see my absence affecting the operations at all. If you feel you do need an admin you can contact Amptrooper or Jedi Yar Nala. If you need immediate help you can contact any mod and they can either help you directly or they can phone the other two admin.
This is bittersweet. I've been very active on a lightsaber forum since feb 2007. Being totally offline for three months is going to be torture.

Well guys, its been a long four months being away from the forum and worse my family, but I see the light at the end of the tunnel. OJT is in about a week then I'm flying the line. I will be slowly rejoining the forum as I get the job down but I still have a lot of work ahead of me.

ZahcStarKiller: Yeah I have to agree. I just happened to stumble across spot #1 on the orbital machining Obi TPM run and had the opportunity to purchase it. That is pretty darn close to happiness.

ZahcStarKiller: djcbooks81, My collection is getting pretty fat as well. Three graflex, luke V2, Phoenix Props Kylo, Orbital Machining Obi, and a few custom sabers. Will be looking for a Qui Gon soon, and then I'll be starting to acquire every saber variant from the OT.

ZahcStarKiller: Then the PT. Must have a good Maul and a few clan sabers. The lady of the house just approved my idea of doing a cantina in one of our huge spare bedrooms, so I am starting a Hn in Carbonite (full size) this summer and will probably be starting an R2 also.
