    A great big thank you goes out to Mike Wise for his great presentations for GPASI here in Pittsburgh on Friday and Saturday. So much information and great detail and pics I wish he could have done a few more talks.

    Thanks, I really enjoyed my weekend with all of the wonderful people at the GPASI. One of the non-fish high points: I got to pet a penguin! One of the non-fish low points: I gained 3 lbs / 1.5 Kg!

    Ha Ha! Good one Linus. For those not into hockey, the Pittsburgh Penguins are Pittsburgh's National Hockey League team. My son, a rabid Colorado Avalanche fan, would disown me if I touched a Penguins player! Only thing worse would be a Detroit Red Wings player. Then I'd have to cut off my hand!:eek:

    Thanks in general to Mike from me too! I already love the forum, the information I can find here, the questions I can ask and hands-on information from members. I hope I'll be able to contribute positive experiences in the future, and appreciate the advice given on less than happy situations.

    (I know, has nothing to do with the OP but; Thanks to Mike Wise in general made me post anyway ;)
