The problem (as I see it anyway) is if you came to the forum for something specific or have input on topics that aren't covered or don't have as much visibility in the Newbie section.
No I am just an opinionated SOB (999 qualified Mensa member) who has a lot to say on almost every topic known to "mankind"
Under my real life identity I have published 150+ articles/papers and 4 books.
One of the highlights of my life was to have the book that *I* wrote quoted to me as the reason that I was full or sh**!
After all "they" wouldn't let you publish anything that wasn't true would they? (See pre-WWII Nazi propaganda about THAT issue!)
Sad facts of authorship at any level:
(1) authors/writers/musicians are the "bottom feeders" of the publishing/movie/music business.
(2) My TOTAL income from ALL of my publications was US$250! My experience is typical. Sorry folks.
(3) "I HATE writing, but I LOVE being an Author" Mark Twain - the PERKS are incredible though LOL. I never gor to use a private jet/rail-road carriage like he did though
