...Another year, with its technological surprises and disappointments, has flown by and soon it will be 2018. And once again, our forums have been a place where everyone can come to share news, discuss (and frequently fix!) problems, and just generally talk about stuff that interests them. And unlike some places, it stays civil... well, mostly... even when passions are running high! Everyone here can take credit for that! But now it's Christmas Eve. I hope that everyone turns off the Internet for a day and takes time to enjoy this holiday with your family and your friends. Merry Christmas, everyone!
