Bottom line most everyone ran into a snaggle and went online searching. This place comes up with its enormous SEO.

This was probably considered a chatroom when first getting here. Normally I would have snubbed the thought of such a thing but CT offers lots of dialogue in different areas of field.

I love talking shop and picking up clever solutions when I'm drawing a blank

The hunt for a cold weather caulk led me here.

The mountains of knowledge brought me back in force a couple years later when I went out on my own.
Like Mordekyle said, this site was like a map to avoid pitfalls in my early years in business. Invaluable.

If we're looking for criticisms, this site is unbearable without ad blocker, nearly unreadable on mobile, and the constant login issues have kept me away for months at a time.
I'd happily pay an annual fee to avoid all that.

Boobs are a young man's game. They aren't as appealing as you get older. Don't get me wrong they are still fun, just say'n.
