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 of :) .

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 :) . Christophe.
