I was too late and found a closed NNTP server.
Yet I want to share a final goodbye and welcome to this new channel.
What I wanted to share on the NG was this:
Goodbye Newsgroup! Welcome Discourse
More than a decade I spend here (on the NG),
many many hours reading replying and contemplating
everything related to Rhino and much more.
Few days have gone by that I did not check for new posts:
Opening Thunderbird meant first checking this NG, and only
after reading and replying here, I hit SHIFT+F5 to get my emails.
This communications channel was the main means
to gain a deep knowledge of all the possibilities Rhino offers,
learn of it’s strengths, weaknesses, caveats, workarounds, bugs,
inconsistencies, ambiguities, hidden secrets …
_testmoocow still being my favorite (Thanks Jeff!)
I developed myself as a self employed “3D-modeler” with a tool
at my disposal that can do magic as far as my clients are concerned.
This channel more than anything made me learn to express myself in English
This channel introduced me to scripting, and WOW how much that has enriched me!
A special thanks to all at RMA for their dedication and their way of doing business.
It’s amazing to be able to have such direct communication with you; the developers
of these programs. The amount of (inside) knowledge you are willing to share is
beyond believable for anyone who did not experience it themselves.
It is because of that, that people come back here, that makes people contribute
and share their own knowledge and time to help out others. Many without any direct
or indirect gain, but the joy of helping out and sharing.
So even more thanks for all those that helped me and others; in some way or another
That made me enjoy this newsgroup!
So let’s continue all of this in this new channel!
See you at the other side!
