I started following this site when it was in Area51. A few months later when the site launched, I was in the first few users to sign up.

There are a lot of questions which I like. I have contributed many questions and answers, and my knowledge increased from the awesome folks we had and still have here.

Overall, I am very happy about this forum and the community.

Only on this site could one find people both well-informed and lighthearted enough to collaboratively figure out how many sneezing gophers it takes to launch a 747.
