    Most here know me well from my posts, articles in the "For Your Interest" area and my book. One poster flamming me in here is not going to make any difference. People here are smarter than that.

    Sure I come across as arrogant at times am can come across pretty strong. That is who I am. I tell it like I see it. But, those who pay attention will learn something just as I have learned from many of you and I have. Yes, even this post sounds a bit arrogant. The best instructors I had were highly opinionated and I paid attention.

    Why don't you think I could be an instuctor if I wanted to?I don't see being an instructor as appealing as you seem to think it is. I do a lot of customer training and don't get complaints. Norm, don't you know that people become teachers when they can't do much else,thats the way it works Norm,if you can't do, then you teach.

    Now granted, you show a lot of knowledge and respect for and of the trade,but lay off the instructor stuff it doesn't mean a whole lot to those of us who know better.
    Eddy, don't take me so seriously. I am being faceious to a great extent. We can spar a little, have some fun and learn from each other at the same time.

    SO EDDY

    What books, or articles, have you had published ?? I think it is great that Norm wants to pass on his knowledge to people that do not know these facts ; yet. I guess you know it all allready. Lucky you. Some of us are still in the learning mode... send us a postcard when you have a chance.

    Hey eddy, there are some pretty poor instructors teaching full time.

    Eddy, as I read your posts I see that there are many things we agree upon. You may very well make a good instructor. I don't know you so I could not say you would not.

    It takes a little while to get to know each others posting personalities here. As you get to know me better you will realize that I sometimes go to the edge of ticking some people off and then back off. But my primary motive is keeping people interested and sharing technical knowledge.

    Post card ?

    Hey I hear what you are saying,you obviously put a lot more emphasis on those things than I do.I just don't see them as being very meaningful,I think that accomplishing the things that I accomplish is a lot more gratifying than writing a book. Just a difference in opinion.

    And yes I know a lot and I know it well,and would be more than willing to be evaluated against anyone in this field fairly.

    I will be more than happy to test and compare IQ scores with anyone on here or in this business.

    I have had these challenges before and it always ends up with the other guy saying oh.

    Hey dawg, I appreciate your support but don't be too impressed. I get up and put my pants on like everybody else does. Plus, there are some pretty sharp guys here who know a great deal. I could post a list of a number of people here from whom I have learned a bunch of things by reading their posts or having discussions with. This is an interesting and useful place.

    It is "arrogance" not arrogant's.

    Are you willing to pass that knowledge on to others ?? Did you learn all you know at your own expence ??
