So long, and thanks for all the Hints!

I would list this as the third most useful site on the web for me (after Wikipedia and Google). I can't imagine the wealth of useful information about Mac OS X that I would not know if it weren't for this site. Many important aspects of my workflow are based on hidden preferences that were posted here, or on little tricks. I am pretty sure that I started learning how to use the command line in a large part because of some of the hints on this site, in addition to one of the old Mac OS X Hints books. And there have been several instances where I have been in a rut with a computer, and a hint from this site has saved me. Even if I started with a Google search, it would lead me here, where the solution would be easily aggregated, as compared to finding the solution in some forum post!

Rob, you've always been friendly and helpful on this site, both to the commenters and the hint submitters, of which I have been both. So thanks actually to you.

It is good to hear that you are going to work for the company that makes Butler. I recently discovered Butler as the only free launcher that works in Snow Leopard, and look forward to further development of it.
