My blessing for the week is being able to make a contribution to something that I feel has been of benefit to me.
Over the years I've been able use the web to solve a number of problems. Many of these have been the sort of hair-tearing, swearing and gesticulating at the monitor sorts of things that cause people to question my sanity even more than they usually do.
The other day, I posted something that I hope will reduce the amount of hair- pulling and swearing that someone else may experience. I'm going to try and post a number of these articles over the next few weeks.
I'm also going to try sending some feedback to people whose pages I have used in the past to let them know that I appreciate the time they took to document solutions and that they helped me out.
Given the size of the internet, I don't think anything that I post is liable to be of much or indeed any help to anyone. This is more to see if it makes any difference in the way I feel about having "given back" to a community that has helped me.
I'll post a followup on this in a few weeks. If I don't then post pointed and guilt-inducing comments reminding me to do this :-)
