I'm a freelance web designer and pro-am PHP developer. I'm interested in everything but entirely-self taught. Recently I've taken up Python with feverish affection. I come here to receive more than give advice (at least until I'm capable of advising), and I shut up and listen when it's offered!
StackOverflow is just plain fantastic and I have nothing but respect and gratitude for the numerous friendly strangers who almost magically provide answers, or advice, or useful tips to questions the internet seems otherwise unable to resolve for poor lil' nubs like myself. Ten million thank yous to all the people that make this site work for those of us not savvy enough in any given domain to answer questions.
