kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

You have an exquisite talent...

Did you dictate this to a 13 year old? Or are you really this stupid?

But I digress. You obviously know nothing, about anything.
Get the fuck out. Still. Forever.

I don't post on this forum because the guys that do have so much more talent than me.
I just look and marvel at their creations.
Scott ties great useable patterns and I like them also .
I am sure if you PM him the url of another site you frequent he would post there also.
Then you would never have to come here again.
Win win.
Much more so for us but still win win.
