RE: I'm Back!
A vacationing penguin is driving his Volkswagen through Arizona when he notices that the oil pressure light is on. He gets out to look and sees oil dripping out of the motor. He drives to the nearest town and stops at the first gas station.

After dropping the car off, the penguin goes for a walk around town. He sees an ice-cream shop and, being a penguin in Arizona, decides that something cold would really hit the spot. He gets a big dish of ice cream and sits down to eat. Having no hands he makes a real mess trying to eat with his flippers. After finishing his ice cream, he goes back to the gas station and asks the mechanic if he's found the problem. The mechanic looks up and says "It looks like you blew a seal."
"No no," the penguin replies, "it's just ice cream."

One day this will be a real post again. Where's our resident social media mogul? Absent too long!

One day this will be a .... well, you know the drill.

Hi Michael - are you still off the vaping permanently - and no cigs. I hope. It is a shame to lose all the expertise of coil building you have.

Yes sir, at least I think so. My logic is this: vaping is at least 95% safer than smoking, as some prominent studies have shown. Which is great as a risk reduction and smoking cessation aid. But I've reached a point in my life where I'm much less tempted to have a cigarette anymore, and I'm not as stressed as I used to be. And while 95% safer is a great reduction, that 5% could still be worse than plain old air. So I figure now that I don't need it to help me quit smoking anymore, then why not try and quit altogether and use that money for something else instead? 
I don't know if I'll be done with vaping forever, but for now at least I'm seeing how I do without it for as long as possible. I still crave nicotine sometimes but I can live without it. I miss it, but it's kind of an experiment right now.

I figured that's how you guys would feel. Glad to be back. And ecignut I'm not sure I'd call it expertise, more like "muddled through enough to learn a thing or two."

Haha fair enough. On the plus side, vaping stuff is actually useful information for life in a lot of cases. Like I've used Ohm's Law for a bunch of stuff besides just making coils.
