Welcome to my world! Your schedule sounds so familier. I won't be able to do any more around here than I ever have but that doesn't matter much anyway. Very few peeps give a rats ass about anything I have to post.
Good luck with the new job and I'll see you in a month.
Knight, I know that I have not been here very much and that is a combination of laziness and an attempt to spend a bit of my time focused on something other than a PC screen. However I feel I pop in enough to have an opinion that matters.
In any community, whether it be online or in the real world, there are key roles which must be filled in order for that community to function. You fill one of those key roles, Knight, whether you see that or not. With no desire at offense, you seem to flip back and forth between wise, village elder and warrior. You have inspired me on more than one occasion with your steadfast refusal to quit the fight and for that I thank you.
The simple truth is that every individual personality here contributes something that makes this place what it is. Each member is like an ingredient or, more appropriate for you, an instrument. You may not hear the instrument loudly, like often times bass is that subtle sound that does not leap out at you (except for much of your modern music) but if it is not there it's absence is all too obvious.
