Then I spent a few years working on a separate project (ToV) with a few Tech Forums members, really got to know a bunch of great people more personally. (ToV) ran it's course and I found my way "via bread crumbs" back to Tech Forums.

The main reason I'm back is because a lot has changed here since I first became a member. I really like the way it's run now "solid core of mods and admins". Larry has obviously shown interest in the community and that goes a long way.
Not to throw this completely OT, but I wondered what happened with ToV.

Living with a family who struggles with cell phones and being in a foreign country with a language you don't speak causes me to be the appointed techy for all buttons and light switches....so more knowledge is more power. lol

So far I see members who actually try and help people. That's rare for the internet.
