Okay, the new web site is up with a new message board, so it is time to take a stand for Inforoo....
I've been registered and have been reading Inforoo for a while (pleased to meet you all), but I don't think I've ever commented because I wasn't sure that I would be going to Roo. I've never been but always wanted to. This year looks like a sure thing.

"Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us." — Charles Bukowski
