[01:34:23] <Bytram> that's how I look at it, too...
[01:34:59] <Bytram> it's not "what can I get out of this?" but, rather, "what do I have that can help contribute to the site?"
[01:35:47] <Bytram> I lack the means to help much, financially, so I contribute my time and expertise in lieu of cash.
[01:36:03] <mrpg> me too
