Thank you for your kindness ivica!??

Even Management only appear to tollerate me over there so it is nice to know that not all my words are ignored/lost.

I do believe that most of what we post on such sites is so that lurkers can have easy access to the latest science/information on the changes our world is seeing.

Thanks again! I do appreciate your kind words.

I should say more (beware of my english),
my roots belong to Computer Sciences, or more generally Natural Sciences.
Simplified, I view technology as the result of a bunch of the people doing their best, direct application of current understanding of Laws of Nature. No Magic there.

Technology on its own is not Good or Bad i.e. "Guns do not kills the people, people does."
Current technology allow us to enter Age of Information, but ...
there are opposition - as always - preferring opposite.
Watching what happens around (generally) I see something in common:

When there is no metric, 'Magic' (enters and) rules.

I followed your postings, quite regularly on occasions,
since 2007. or so (unsure about the start) and until Blackout (limited access for Guests, a 2 y ago?).
You played a big role in my way of gathering information.
There were others, as well, let me mention a few - from a top of my head:
Roger Coppock, Newsgroups
Dr. Masters and WU, several people there (I've impression that Nea is here?)
early RealClimate
Wayne EH2R
...
(I apologise to others which names I miss to recall right now)

Gray-Wolf et al. Keep up the good work. :-)
