      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   10/22/2017

      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

Mucho domos for your all your contributed pearls of wisdom to Appliantology, Brother Durham!   :banana:

 

Your poetic commemoration touches me... and I don't mean in a very Catholic way... at least I don't think I do.   :ohmy:

 

May you have 2,000 more posts!   :bunny:  :party:  :beatnik:  :woohoo:

Thanks! i think???.....Touching in a Catholic way?  Surely you mean like a touch to the forehead to expel a demon during an exorcism.

 

Touching further below is a sure sign that the person doing the touching has a few ,major internal demons he has to deal with as well.

lol never thought of it in that way.  Boy that world "love" sure has a lot of meanings...including "laying on of hands." Or is that "hand?"

Congrats on Number 2000 Brother Durham.  The mental damage of that many posts appears to be negligible.

Well, I am imune to myself, but you probably need to check the mental state of those unfortunate souls who stumble across my many mind-numbing ravings.
