    That would be cool. Guys who take pride could show off a bit. It would also be a great place to post up recommended practices, what rod, what heat, what filler, all the fun stuff no one ever wants to share.

    I'd be cool with that. I can burn rod and make it look somewhat decent. Would be nice to pick up some new tricks.

    I'd clutter up the site with posts. Welding is an obsession for me.

    I'm kinda liking the idea, or I just slip back over to the weldingweb. Not much of a pic poster myself, but I do quite a bit of heavy equipment welding, most of it is really boring stuff... Gouge... weld... gouge... weld... Repeat.

    I have noticed that's an issue right now. Been talking with a WW member and have him snooping around over here, he likes the place. No idea if he will register yet.

    No answers. All is secret. I suggested they may have failed to pay a bill. They are indeed down, with no projections as to when they will return.

    Hobbytime posted what he found out up above in "Shop talk". Appears most of Pentons servers went down for some strange reason yet undisclosed.
