    Andy!! That's a blast from the past. We haven't seen chopnik here in ages, but you're the one that's supposed to bring us news of him, not the other way round. Last thing I remember was him moving a few years ago, and he posted for a short while after and then slowly disappeared.

    Yea, i was having an arguement with a cheif engineer at work about the mass of a compressed spring compared to an uncompressed spring, and with the pointlessness of the arguement got me thinking back to you guys! I have been trying to track him down for a little while now and i reckon the little ****er has crawled underneath that rock in the med.

    I will gladly be your son Evo, i have been doing pretty well, got myself i decent job that offers plenty of time off, am engaged to be married october 30th this year and we have bought a flat together so things are going nicely, how are you?

    Some of those old threads still really makes me laugh, the banter with entropy and tribdog was great, i will track jimmyp down, i have contacted everybody that shares his name on facebook in an attempt to find him but havent heard anything back yet.

    Congratulations!! Sounds like you've been doing very well since we last spoke. New house and good job? When do I move in? o:)

    I really miss the old days.

    I'm still alive and kicking. If you find jimmyP you tell him his PF Mom says hello.

    I hope you'll have time to pop in here and talk.

    Re: Jimmyp/chopnik

    A pointless argument reminded you of us? :grumpy:

    :rofl: Actually, yes, considering the discussions we all had "back in the day," I can believe it! Long time no see! Welcome back! I'll pour you a drink while you tell us what you've been up to.

    Dont worry mom i do intend on becoming a regular on these boards again, hopefully i can cause some trouble. Is pointlessness even a word? If its not it should be. You might be interested to know that i have 2 kittens in my flat aswell, not quite kittens anymore, the oldest is 14 months and the youngest has just had his first birthday, they havent quite mastered the sniper rifle but they are learning. Still no word from jimmyp, dont think he is on facebook.

    It's not as much fun anymore. Everyone started school, finished school, got jobs, got girlfriends/boyfriends. I've been ill, so I am not as funny anymore. :frown:

    Back when we had njorl, Artman, Zoobyshoe, Tsu, (even Ivan was funny) yomamma, Franzneiche, Smurf, Danger, Moonbear, tribdog, Wolram, you, jimmyp, hypatia, etc... devoting time in here I was constantly snorting all over my keyboard. Luckily some of those great moments are captured in the GD Classics thread. https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=42220

    Re: Jimmyp/chopnik

    Andy's talking about Lapin Dormant. I don't think anyone else referred to Lapin as the Lazy Rabbit.
