I see requests coming through a number of current NFB-hosted lists that I feel I need to respond to as well as others that come directly to me. Keeping  track of a lot of lists is proving a little time-consuming for me personally, and to be honest, I'm getting quite distracted by interesting but less relevant discussions. I love helping people with finding solutions though so wanted a more dedicated list to focus my attention. It's time we started working as a group of people more and more so that we all (me included) can get the best out of R now and into the future.
