One thing I should have warned you about
I'm long-winded. In the forum I mentioned, I contributed about 1600 posts in 5 months, and few of them were less than a page in length. I tend to go on and on about a topic, saying things in about twice as many words as anyone else will, and wandering and disgressing wildly. There's usually a point to it, if you have the patience, but when I really get going, I can provide a cheap, non-prescription sleep aid.
