Distance

Hi Fritz,

That's great to hear. Unfortunately I am in Nanaimo, and not often in Langley so logistically speaking it may be a bit awkward. But I do have resources and I can do video chats through skype. Preferably though it would be best to close ourselves in a room and dig at it.

Luckily, the site is pretty self sufficient for the most part, or requires smaller sections of time, 20 minutes here and there...

This is not the UFC

Once in a while, as administrator of this website, I am forced by my own judgment to edit some comments, or outright delete them as I feel they are not really intended to bring the Marine Engineering community any real value. Sometimes I am asked by those "involved" in these comments to ha...
