    You’re talking to the converted here! I think it’s a great hobby, but then I’ve been comping online for quite a few years. I look around my home and see all the things that I’ve acquired through comping. As I write, I’m setting up the iPod that I won earlier in the month.

    This is a great site, and the vast majority of the people here are friendly and supportive.

    Here’s to a successful 2009!

    Thanks Jason, Kirsty and everyone else involved with the site.
