Statistically, most small businesses don't make it to five years. I think it's at least partly due to drudgery. SPCR is kind of a small business, and I feel its age more and more. Tasks I used to look forward to with relish now feel like... tasks. One has a sense of soldiering on. But once in a while, a little lift comes along, like this email, with the header "good job!":
i've been into computers most of my life, starting with early sinclairs and commodores (god, these were really silent!)
then PCs came along and made my world a noisy place
then i found your site
thanks to all your expertise, advice, articles, forums and so on and so forth, the noisiest component of my rig is now my... CRT screen! (a new LCD is on its way already)
anyway, i just would like to say that spcr is one mighty fine site, and i know of no other PC-related site that is managed so well, with such passion and devotion, that is so useful and rewarding to visit
your guys rule and kick bxxx and i wish you all the best in your quest to hush the world (isn't the world computers, after all?)
my best regards to you and your team!
You're welcome... and thanks, Patryk.
