I'm an on-site tech based in Australia and the amount of times this site and all of its wonderful resources has made me job ten-fold easier is countless. There's been many a times I couldn't have done without it.
That said, I realise I should have become a member far earlier. I've only just discovered how fruitful these forums are as well. And what a great, generous and helpful bunch this community is!
/Feeling privileged to have become a member.
