As much as I hate to say it, I'm starting to think that DIY forums are no longer needed in today's internet. What with google, instructables, MAKE magazine, hackaday, etc. that show you how to make nearly anything you could possibly want already.
Really saddens me in a way, I originally joined totse because of the DIY threads. Mainly the underground fortress/tunnel thread - I was in 6th grade around that time, and in that summer I had off of school I dug a 5 foot wide, 8 foot deep hole that was going to be a tunnel. Mostly through solid fucking rock, too (Hammers, air powered tools and lack of parental supervision FTW!).
Then again, it's more likely this is due to the lack of a community we have around here. I still really, really would like some time to just sit down with Jeff and talk with him, to hopefully better understand his decision (Assuming he's still alive). Why would a man with such a huge following and internet community destroy it all. *Sigh*
