I have visited the site for several months now, but simply never posted a "hello". I have been trying to make more time for my restoration efforts and I think I have 2008 lined up to allow it.
I have been doing restoration on a very part-time basis for about 5-6 years. In 2007 I was fortunate enough to enter semi-retirement at an early age... so, that finally gave me the time to start catching up to some of the current technology and methods. I finally upgraded my software and hardware to something halfway descent. But, I spent much more time and effort reading books by Katrin Eismann and working through them as if I were in a class. I also read books on color so I could ensure I was working in a properly calibrated workspace.
So, now I feel that I can at least understand everyone's postings and possibly contribute some slightly educated advise. I look forward to the upcoming year and hope that I may be able to share some good experiences with some of you.
