I just saw this post -
(Sorry I've been a bit busy and behind on all the gossip).
I used to blog at codebetter.com, and I can echo Sam's thoughts completely. I didn't like the over-zealousness, and immaturity either. Except, when I left codebetter, internally things turned ugly, because I was very vocal about my dissatisfaction with how negative codebetter was turning out to be. Sam on the other hand acted like an intelligent more mature person :-).
But don't mistake Sam's composure for smartness ;-). Sam took a full EXTRA YEAR to realize, what I realized in a flat 2 months. LOL.
Welcome to the free world Sam, your blog and intelligentsia is extremely valued in the community. I know you made the right decision, because I've been through it.
Now, I know some smelly bear in the woods will flame me, but I need to get back to work here. So wuteverr!!
