Default Pretty much done...

Hello all,

I would first like to thank everyone for their support over the years--and especially the "Tech Savant" designation, it was very much like winning an Emmy for me!

Thing now is that my mind is getting fuzzy and I can no longer really focus on details. I will try to keep an eye on things here and contribute as I can--please PM me if you think I can help, I really enjoy problem solving as it keeps my brain active...

Engineering is, at its base, making what you want from what you have.
At its extreme it is making what you want from what you can get.

Hey Cliff! I'm sure there's a thread for this somewhere; but since you're the savant maybe you can answer my question. I know that mods pretty much void a warranty, but are there any mods (tune,CAI ect.) that I could do and possibly change back to stock without voiding an aftermarket warranty? Thanks bud!

I haven't been active on this forum for a long time but I figured I'd stop in and thank you for all the help and support you gave this community.

You definitely changed this place for the better. Brought a very level headed approach to a lot of topics; which some times was a difficult thing to find.

Wish you the best of luck.

You don't know it but you were a big reason I decided to dump my Biology & Kinesiology Masters/D.O. and started over with a completely new path in Computer/Electrical Engineering.

I may not be MIT material like you but I'll make something work. :0)

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

Thanks cliff. Stick around if you can.

A little late on this one

Sorry to see this day come. I'm way too busy with work and other hobbies these days to ever really post or even lurk over here or other mustang forums for that matter. As odd as it seems the urge to check in over here to see cliffy still posting is sometimes too hard to resist.

With that being said, hobbies - like everything in life are just a means to an ends. How much satisfaction you draw from them depends on how open you are to them and how much you accept from them. How open and acceptant we are towards hobbies always depends 100% on things far more important to our lives than the hobby itself. When core things arent right with us such as relationships, money, time, health.....we have a hard time enjoying or caring about our hobbies.

If those things are true then if someone gets the feeling that they can no longer afford to mentally supply a hobby and keep those core things in life correct then it is most certainly OK to hang up the hat. Especially after so much dedication, expertise, and the most important thing....satisfaction.
