I don't know most of the folks here, as I've been mostly on the Vista forums until more recently. The triad of Windows forums here (VF, SF, EF) are the best on the Internet in this genre. So many talented people man the stations, eager to help others. I've been around to quite a few other forums and keep coming back to VF/SF.
Anyway, glad to see Arc getting over his bump in the road. Perspective is everything. When we're in the thick of it, it's hard to stay objective. Sometimes we need to vent, walk away, and come back later. In the end, when you've developed relationships with people who care, you can't stay away from them... you soon realize your departure negatively affects them. "We're all in this together". Living among people is all about symbiosis. And the best thing is that in time you eventually discover that you feel better when you give more than you receive. Giving is the life blood of companionship and civilization.
