Thanks Martin. Bibliotaco , I often eat there myself. It's the old library building, hence the name.
I'm Gary Hamilton. I was an instructor of yours at PMTI.
I still tell the story of the time I asked you to start up a large diesel engine stored outside the shop. You used an oxy-acetelene rosebud torch in the intake to get it started. It created a great cloud of diesel exhaust which got sucked into the building ventilation system causing the deck officer trainees and administration staff on the third floor to almost shut down the college. Who knew?

Hey Ho, Hi Gary, long time no see. Good to hear your are in the area, maybe Ill give you a shout next time i'm up there.

Well, I forget that particular incident, but sounds about right... =)... apparently that is my signature move, since Ive heard a few people talk about it; ahhh. those deck people panic at everything. When I work with old engine I don't need a laptop, ehehehe.
