Actually, on that point I think we both agree (LOL).
The only thing in my defense (slim as it is) is that I am often doing other things on my computer that I need to wait for (either compiling, encoding, or rendering) and thus the forums are a pleasant way to pass the time and possibly be helpful (unlike my wife and daughter, who enjoy wasting *their* time doing their facey books, texting and twittering tweeting). I don’t begrude anyone how they use their time – it’s truly the only thing we have we can call our own – but I do often wonder if I’m wasting my own here.
And, as Rich implies, I get some rewards from the fellowship of folks such as himself and the ability to, from time to time, help some others find as much enjoyment from this inexpensive media player as I have. I did it for years for the iPod (before anyone even knew what an iPod was) and now that I’m no longer needed on the Apple forums I think I’ve found a small home here.
