I know I've come to love this place, and it's definitely something I look forward to on a daily basis. There is a certain satisfaction to be had from helping other people share something that you love to do.

For me, it's tech, and included in tech is Android. IRL friends and family tend to roll their eyes at me when I try to share a new rom/feature/app with them but on here, it's different. It's more people who share the same enthusiasm for something I do, much like other modding communities.

I've also made a few friends on here, some of them which I draw upon regularly for guidance as their life experience and perspective that comes with it greatly surpasses my own.

So yes, I do consider AF as part of an extended family, because heck, I like being here/talking more than I do some of my in-laws! ;O
