Heya Familab, ViGG here.
« on: September 14, 2015, 01:01:04 PM »
Hi!

I'm Mike, but we all know that Mikes are like tribbles,  so I go by half of my last name - ViGG.

I am classically trained artist, and make a living in the software industry on a server ops team.

My current goal is to get back to my roots in metal casting and fabrication.  I am hoping to do some lost PLA casting in the near future as I work towards getting a mini foundry setup.  I really like the juxtaposition  of old and new, so using an ultra modern technology with an ancient practice is right up my alley.

Of course I have a million and one interests, so I am hoping to not get too distracted by all the cool stuff I have seen going on in the lab over the past month.

Thanks for making me feel very welcome into your space, and I look forward to meeting more of you and seeing all the cool projects people have going on.  It's very inspiring!

ViGG.

John Cope here! I'm the shaved head 24 year old from the crew you met at the Faire. We spoke about casting metal and tooling parts and leveling up members' abilities to make heavy duty machines and artwork. Love to see you out again man!
I like colors.

Since I'm not sure which Mike we've got here (you tribbles, you) , bring in your paperwork if you haven't already, and you can introduce yourself tonight if you haven't already. Then we vote on you next time.

Thanks for that, I had it wrong in my head about the intro/vote process... I will be bringing my paperwork tonite for sure!

I am an "older" (40s) guy, with a beard.  Ha!  Good luck narrowing that down.

We did chat a few weeks back about 3d sintering on the moon, but I am sure you tell all the tribbles about that.

Ha! It takes me a bit to do the name-face thing unless you're extremely... unique. For a lot of people it's "hey, you with the face" or "hey, dude over there" for a long while. :P
