Thanks for the comment man!  The nation is pretty boring most days!   I don't spend much time on there any more but when I do there is just a lot of the same old tired crap! 

Looks like you've been pretty damn inventive too man!!!   How did that upside down resonator work out?!   Let me know if it worked pretty well!   I have some potential bits and pieces I might have to bolt together too!!!!!  Cheers man!  Keep 'em comin'!!   Somebody has to think outside the box!  JP

OOPS!  Made a rookie mistake and commented about one of your gits an your comment wall....shit.  Oh well, I copy and pasted it to the correct picture.

Hey, I've sent you some emails....to your regular email address, not through the nation...but you must not have gotten them.

The "Holy Mackerel, It's a Squid", git is nearly complete!   I'll post some pics and maybe a vid just to make you drool!
