It's time for a change and I need your help to make it happen. Not too long ago I took a poll to see if people found this site helpful, and based on the response the answer was a big -- yes! But, instead of making me just feel fuzzy inside, it also focused my mind and made me examine how I could make this site even more awesome. Actually, I've already gotten started on this expansion project and have been working on the redesign of this site for the past month or so.

So off we went in a small yellow hatchback car that was

I Need Your Feedback

A few weeks ago I asked for feedback about whether or not I should expand this website and the response was great. That kind of response tells me that people are being helped by this site and that what I do is having an impact.
