wow, i was sifting thru the information here (an monumental task at best) and decided to join the irc channel and ran into some incredibly friendly people! they were soo nice to me and Matty_Cross was especially of help with my questions. ( thanks matty! )

i really appreciate this place and tho i don't know much.. i guess that's why i'm here. thanks guys for what seems to be a great community to learn from.

take care of yourselves!
