Announcement Jan 2017 Mentor Change

  1. Jan 10, 2017 #1
    We are announcing that @Orodruin has retired from the PF Mentors group. In a couple short years @Orodruin rose to become a real all star in the community and PF will miss his leadership in the Mentor group. A busy real life has struck again. @Orodruin has many exciting projects ahead of him and we wish him the very best! He has intentions to stick around and continue being a great and valued member.

    To help fill in his spot we are excited to announce that @fresh_42 has agreed to join the Mentor group. @fresh_42 has demonstrated a great enthusiasm for the community and for helping others. Welcome!

    Now, where is that beach in the Caribbean where you send old mentors to have umbrella-adorned drinks while watching the waves roll in - silently pondering how far badly the linear regime of the wave equation is broken?

    We used to go there the beginning of April, but we haven't done that for a few years... :biggrin:

    (sorry, that was before your time here...)

    Not exactly what you are looking for, as it is much closer (Zadar, Croatia) and the wave was just reflected, but it is best I can think of.

    To the left of the image there is a huge walkway that lights up. Very cool!

    Actually it was way back behind me. But you are perfectly right, that's the place!

    Actually I had never enough time to wait till dark to see it working, each time I am in Zadar it is just a side trip and I have to drive further.

    I'm sorry. That feature is only available to active mentors. :-p
