    Default I have fantastic news!

    Hello my friends at Think Bike!

    It's been a helluva long time since I've been online and my life has been filled to the brim with stories I'd love to tell you all.

    The most exciting prospect may be the fact that I now have a full time job as a Web Developer at a very important business.
    This opportunity came shortly after I finished my end of year exams this term and I was recruited and tested on my skills of
    programming and web developing. I am very proud to announce to the members here that I am returning and hopefully I
    will be posting full time.

    I'd like to thank the members of this very forum, those who got together, and out of the kindness of their hearts decided to
    sponsor my membership for this year, which not only came in handy but also furthered my trust and my positive perspective
    on this community. As is, unfortunately my parents do not share the view I have of this forum and the people who are on here,
    but I've come to the point where I can now purchase my own motorcycle with the income I produce.

    I'd like to thank those of you who showed me around the forums when I first joined, those who showed me the ropes, the do(s) and don't(s)
    of this community. I'd like to raise attention to a man who took me under his wing when I first joined and watched me flourish in this community.

    Not only did he write a blog post about my struggle to convince my parents that bikers are normal people as well as some of the most vigilant and caring riders on the road, but he guided me through
    Think Bike and introduced me to all of you.

    I would like to thank you all for your support and the laughs.

    I'm glad to be back

    -Michael
    P.S. There might be acquiring of a 300cc Kawa in the works

    I know of the late nights, I also know of the caffeine induced creativity! The world of webdev is quite the place to be. :nerd:

    Damn, if I knew you were job hunting ;)

    We could probably use an eager dev (or two?) as well if you know any other students finishing up.

    Pyro, if you could still use a hand, email me and just give me an overview of the skills you need. I may know of a few devs who'd like to get a nice job in dev world
