Almost always check into FWF first and once in a while refer to the treasure trove in Finiki (especially when I start to think about messing up our IPS).
:? + FWF/Finiki = :D
Thank-you all!

My first stop every day. I want thank the Regents for helping it survive. And the current efforts of all the contributors, especially Finiki.

Now we have to focus on the future. Ten years hence! When PCs will be anachronistic! And the audience will be tweeters...
For the fun of it...Keith

I'll add to the wishes. This is always my first Web page everyday and I've learnt so much here over the years.

I first started reading the forum in 2006. It is an essential part of my online life. I still remember how scare I was during the 2008 meltdown and how much the advice I receive through the forum steadied my nerves and helped me come through the crisis unscathed.

Happy Birthday, FWF!
Regards,
Pickles

I just saw I've been here 10 years and few days. Missed the rollover, kinda like the car a 100,000 someone pulls a stunt in front of you and you miss it. Learned a lot and it doesn't feel like ten years. In hindsight was a good time to commiserate given how things unraveled for a while.
