I've been slowed down here for a few reasons. Work keeps me busy and I can't always get online when I'm traveling which I do quite often. Also, now that I'm back in school, that takes a lot of time and computer use (on-line classes). Plus my better half has done some complaining in the past about the amount of time I used to be on the computer so I've slowed down a bit.
We haven't had many 'fun' topics to discuss lately. It's been mainly politics, equality and the like. I do believe the SF forums are very important and they are in my life. Even if things are on an even keel, and there's not much controversy to keep lively conversations up, I find it a safe and comfortable place to just hang out and chat (or read).
There are a lot of new members, but I haven't had much time to spend welcoming them. To all of you, welcome, I'll get there sooner or later!
