Things are sure slow on RMR lately. I don't think I've ever seen it so quiet in the past five or six years. With warm weather things have always slowed down but RMR has always been fairly active place year round.
For me the hobby has been fairly quite too because I have not been building any models, doing any research, or even much related reading. All I have been doing is building benchwork and backdrops, running wire, installing lights a few hours at a time here and there. I'm getting a little tired of it so I don't have much to say about it either. I will be painting the backdrop soon and I'm looking forward to that. There have been no new or announced products that I've been excited about for quite some time other than the MMI HOn3 K-27. Very few people give a hoot about a new K-27 and how much can you say about a K-27 that hasn't already been said? There seems to be fewer new steam models announced than in the past few years so there has been less to discuss in this area. I guess I haven't had as much to talk about lately.
So what's going on with everyone else? Everyone move to Yahoo Groups or the Atlas forum? It can't be flame wars driving people off because there haven't been any for quite some time. Is anyone even lurking without much to say right now? Even Spanky hasn't dropped in recently unless he has another new identity and is pretending to be a rational person. Have we gotten so mundane that even the trolls are board? Where are guys like Matt who always seem to get an interesting thread going? What do you think? Who's out there? Bruce
