Same here! It has become a part of my daily life being here. Even if I am ‘lurking’ I am learning and enjoying things. The people here are all so nice. The site is so easy to get around. There are so many different ‘departments’ that you can spend your time in. If you want to talk, go to the forums. If you want to learn or just read, go to the blogs. If you want to ‘window shop’ go to the project gallery – it is like going to a museum! There is something for everyone here and I really love it. I think that is why we all come back!
