I'm sure this will get nuked, but I just want to say that I'm a newbie, and I was tempted many times to embark on the road you travelled. E2 can be a daunting challenge to those of us that crave attention and fame (just ask Chiisuta about me!) but at the same time, it offers new challenges of creativity and knowledge.

I just wanted to say that, being a newbie, you probably don't know me... but I relate to you, and hopefully that's enough to make you realize that someone here does, in some way, know you.

That was sappy, so now I'm sorry.
