Also, lots of knowledgable people that even experienced users can learn a thing or two from.
Knowledgeable is an understatement. I believe this quote sums it up the genius of some of our members:
"He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament."
BrainEater, I'm looking at you.

IMHO, "discussions" about Vista vrs XP, Dual vrs Quad, or 4Gig vrs 8Gig are not a bad thing so long as the discusion stays civil. There are benefits to boths sides of the "discussion" and it's important for folks to get that information in order to make an informed decision.

Well, like I said to Owen (Twysted), look at any of the regulars here, and we look out for it's own. Hell, this place, lack of a better term, is in it's own sense a family.

Alright seriously, no more insolence, else you'll be placed in a burlap sack and beaten with reeds. Sorry, HWC rules. Pretty standard really.

There are many reasons that make this forum a great place to be a member, and Doc, I really have to agree with you on your last post. I think as time goes on this board will always continue to improve because of the Mods, Regulars, and Noobs who congregate here. Great work HWC!
