Wishing you a happy Christmas FE, and a great well-deserved break!
Must add my thanks for the forums that have been my chief tech support, however elementary or specialist the questions.
I was another 'late adopter' joining in about 2002. Unwillingly late, with internet access only recently possible, via first new computer for 16 years with first Windows and first modem. (It didn't even dawn that I now had audio, till I saw someone on screen obviously talking, which led to a missing audio cable!). These forums have been (and still are) extra valuable in my location (scattered population, with even less knowledge than me in most aspects of IT).
I found the PC Advisor website (unusually for then!) wonderfully minimalist, clear to read and dialup friendly (even over the 12 Kbps max that our area could offer until 2009). The forums still beat other tech ones for readability, ease of use, good moderating and friendly manner (and the people referred to in the earlier years as Helproom Angels!).
Here's hoping you'll be at the helm for plenty more years (providing you continue wanting to!).
