Just like I did when I arrived here a couple of years ago. I had wanted to wait
for at least a week before showing up, but it was so interesting here that I
decided not to wait :) .

I have kind of the same problem, not that I quit when projects start to get on
my nerves, but rather that I quit because a new project asks to be taken care

Then you found the perfect place. You will see, your linguistics vocabulary
will grow up extremely fast here! Mine was nonexistent when I arrived, while
now I can read a linguistics book without being lost at the second sentence :) .

Don't hesitate show up in conversation. People at Conlang-l are rather friendly
and willing to discuss. No wonder why the traffic here is so important :) .
