many here think we are... no design threads, after all...  sorta self-
perpetuating, really...  no design threads equates to tech-heavy days, equates
to less comfort for designers, equates to less design threads...

i'm an information whore (among many other kinds)... i read as much as i can,
and oddly enough, the first time i sat down in front of a PHP script to hack
away at it, i could do it -- untrained -- just from the smattering of knowledge i
picked up from thelist, as if by osmosis (but not really, since osmosis is
water only)...  my first ever SQL query not only worked on the first try, but
earned a little respect from my db monkeys, thanks to listening to people like
rudy espouse the virtues of clean queries... and it was written from meta-
memory, thanks to just being on thelist...

IOW, i've learned so much from reading posts that i would otherwise delete,
that i'm now afraid to delete posts...

i can quit any time...


i can...

you gonna read that?
