Me too. Although I pretty much konw what he's going to say, he always adds a 
few new points to the discussion.

jesse started something, whic I will finish as soon as I've talked to Jesse. 
but he's gone for the week and the site needs to be up end of this week. 
Perhpas I'll just rip whatever he has on (i believe that's 
where he put it) and expand on it. Basically it's the exact LFS site but of 
course made for ALFS. I can have an ALFS site up and running in a few minutes 
(just changing a few php files around and add some text) which looks exactly 
like the LFS site. This helps when I change the LFS site itself to a new 
layout, ALFS will change accordingly.

So I've noticed ;) At times it's hard to make decision and at times people 
just don't understand (or don't want to) my reasoning, or the global 
reasoning (like when the majority of frequent posters have agreed on 
something), I have to say "Because I said so". I hate saying it (although 
it's very effective ;)
