Benny - I'm in the same boat (so to speak). I pop in every 6 months or so - and can't even try and catch up. Just staying current is a two hour effort. But the members are great and the diversity of ideas is so stimulating. I now have more projects on "back burner" than posts to catch up on.
It would be kinda nice if the length of some of the threads could be cut into "chapters" with sub headings - but configuration management/control of a living document is very difficult I suppose. And who would take the lead on that - the moderator - or thread starter? Just my dos centavos.
Have a beer mate! Jim
