Because of your work and assistance I have been able to create an amazing amount of devices that have gotten me into, and out of trouble. Keep having fun with your future adventures!
I'm curious to see what you are up to next...
Thank you,

James, you will be missed! I really enjoyed spending time with you at a couple of McGrew's camps. Good luck in the future.

James I feel privileged to have met you this year at McGrews and then again in Orlando just a few weeks ago! Your training, humor, and dedication to all of us has been awesome. If I ever get to England we can grab our top hats and go to Ascot with my stuffy sister!! Best of wishes and Godspeed.

You will never know the extent of the tremendous impact you have had on so many across the globe. It has been a real pleasure knowing you and I can't say enough about how much I have learned from your sessions at the user group meetings and at the McGrew camps. I still have much to learn but you have certainly changed my life in a most positive way.

You will certainly be missed. I wish you the very best and I know you will successful in whatever you do next.

Wow, you will be missed. As an instructor it is always hard to gauge if you are getting though to your students. When a lot of that instruction is done remotely through outstanding videos it is even harder. Having worked in the Vectric booth for several west coast shows and listening to YOUR students telling how they use the software and how they learned to use it, I can guarantee you got through. As I said, you will be missed!

As a side note I can't remember do I still owe you a brew or is it the other way around! :D Russ

James- I learned sooooooooooooooo much from your training video's thanks. I also appologize for "cussing" you out, privately at my computer, when I couldn't join vectors. Only to find out it was my short coming :(

Hi James,

I am excited for you and look forward to learning what you decide to pursue for this "next chapter" of your very creative life! Whatever "it" is (and it may be several things), I'm sure it will be interesting, enjoyable and productive. I wish you and your family all the best in your new venture.

Thank you for everything you do! You are an inspiration to us all.

When I needed a model for the Dashboard carving I did for my Model A Ford, you came up with exactly what I need. Good luck in your new venture. Gary

James, I can only add to what's already been said by letting you know how you've helped.
I tried several CAD CAM packages before Aspire. I was very close to giving up.
Your explanations and tutorials got me where I am today and for that my Family, Pets, Colleagues, motorcycles, vans, cars, Friends and various purveyors of CNC hardware thank you.
Good luck in whatever you do next.
You will succeed in whatever you decide to do, you have that way about you, but above all you are a Gentleman and it's been a pleasure to know you.
Many thanks. Tim.

wow never saw that coming but all things come to an end.
You are a very knowledgeable and helpful guy ,, If your tutorials are being replaced by the girl with the sweet voice that will ease the blow a little bit !

Best of luck, Doug
