I would just like to say...
Firstly: To the moderators, I am very sorry if posts like this are frowned on, just let me know and I will make sure I behave in future.
A very big thank you to an awful lot of the devs and incredibly brainy people on here. There are some that I have already hit the thanks button to.
But without you guys life would be very very boring indeed.
Reading your posts, conversations and comments on all manner of things has left me feeling I am in the presence of giants but has also encouraged me to experiment and then given me ways to recover when my experiments have gone wrong.
You lot rock.
