  1. Hey: thank you for taking time of composing up this info. I frequently seek to additional my idea of items. Regardless of whether I agree or disagree, I like information and facts. I consider the previous times when the only source of details was the library or the newspaper. They both equally feel so archaic. Please Pardon my bad english : )

    • Hi Chung,
      Thanks for taking the time to visit, and reply! So very true, good point about OS vs Library & Newspapers!
      I hope you’ll follow us too!
