Here in Alberta (Canada) monday is "Family Day" (a nice little feb stat :), it's also presidents day in the U.S., i think).  So to those I've been a littler "terse" with this week, have a *great* weekend, I know I've been needing one.

1)such a darn great place to give/get great advice and
2)(usually :) a great, supportive community that serves point #1 better then most/all

a normal friday here... except beginning of a weekend and AD&D day! Aha, soon I'll be walking on the plains of  Krynn, as Solamnic Knight (who's been femaled, grin [damn wizards]) with my fellow compangons. Fighting against the Dragon Armies en perhaps find death....

E-E is a drug, especially the Delphi community. It's funny, nobody knows each other and still we're helping each other out. We live scattered around globe and perhaps we may never see each other... You can't quite. Ever tried it? I did twice... but I'm back again... yeah, it's harder then quiting from a sigaret.

have all a nice weekend!

It's Friday here in not so sunny England so that means the weekend is just around the corner. Two days off and then back to the drudgery - ho hum.

So why is EE better than anywhere else? Why is it such a great place to swap ideas and knowledge? This'll sound all girlie but it's not the place but the people - everyone shares their knowledge, and people help each other out. Not only can you find out what you want to know, and spread little nuggets of info, but you can also fine tune those grey cells by rapid problem solving. It is so much more like a community here than anywhere else - there are names that you recognise, characters you remember, and even on-going chats. In short: It's great.

hey, we have Friday also! (weird, huh??? ;-))

oops... Sunday already ;-))

so... I'm new in here... 2 weeks actually... but I've got a MAGIC FORMULA of EE ;-)

S = N * Ia + I

S - satisfaction from using EE
N - number of experts on-line
Ia - average IQ of all that experts ;-)
I - my own IQ

set your values for vars and click 'Build&Run' [Delphi rulez]  ;-)
