First, thanks for all your work on this forum

i know John passed away, but he had many valuable posts. I just did a search under micro.... and I can’t find him. Is this intentional?

It would be a shame to loose his great techniques and sage advice, even though some of us didn't always agree with him. Hopefully Timbucktoo's link saved the day!

Link works, but search box doesn’t pull up micromeister as an option.

If you enter his name in the “posted by”section, it results in every thread he ever responded. Not sure what else you want.

It works. Confirmed even when not logged in.

If in the "posted by" section, you type "micro", it will not offer "Micromeister" as an autocomplete suggestion. Not a big deal, but curious.

correct, it doesn't autofill but you still get the results that BABAR is looking for.

FYI - the Yahoo group of micros that John maintained is no more. Unless some of you saved the files it contained, all those plans are lost

Well I did the download that Yahoo offered before everything was erased. I copied all the groups I belonged to, including the micro max group. I've only poked around in it a little bit, but it appears that all the email threads, files, photos, etc are there for all of them. They are separated into the different groups. Beyond that, I haven't taken the time to figure out how to make them searchable or really useful in any meaningful way. If someone knows of a way to do so, I'd appreciate the info.

Would you be able to up load file by file to this site for others?

+100 His passion for Micromaxx rockets was infectious and a good part of the reason that I have the ones that I have and why I still hope to build more. I would love to see, and be able to access, those plans.

I do not think that I heard that John passed. This makes me sad.

Y'know, I still don't understand the reason for the original question. *Why* does Micromeister's username not autofill? It doesn't make any sense to me.
