No, not a death announcement. I ran across the article I wrote that D Brady put in his book, and made me wonder how my old pals are doing? Anyone still around from 3 years ago?

Okay, okay! I admit it. I'm a lurker too....
In the past (IIRC) the group appeared to discuss mainly hot worked glass.
Any engravers/sandblasters out there?

I'm not sure about three years, plus I had a different account in the past with a different name. I haven't been here in a while mostly because my insanely-small-scale soldering is still absolutely horrible, and I've been trying to perfect it. So I haven't done anything new in terms of technique - just designing, and trying to do, tiny pieces. My first eventual goal is to make small pieces (3" to 5" in diameter, using brass macrame'/"craft" rings as the outside frame) incorporating non-glass things such as Swarovski crystals (well, OK, technically they're a type of glass, but they're more refractive), interesting stones, shell, and so on. Hopefully people will be interested in buying these... My second eventual goal is to make miniature real-stained-glass windows. Long story.
But soldering tiny stuff is HARD! Much more difficult than doing something larger, because even the tiniest flaw is awfully glaring because of the small overall size.
So, it's just not anything that's particularly exciting to write about...

Every 6 months or so I look to see it there is anything here other than the repost of the charter, doesn;;t seem to be much, the cycle of stained glass has reached is low point. In an economy that is in dire straits world wide, it is one of those things that peope do not NEED, and as such is relegated to the back and rear most closet of things to do when,,,,,,

I dunno....yes, things have been slow in the retail end of stained glass but I am seeing a slight increase in business. I think the fusing part is more of a fad as the cost of kilns and such just keep going up.
