I've tried to google things that I need/want to do with my site and 
writing my own plugins, and patching others plugins to add to them what 
I would like them to do.  But its hard to find things that I am wanting 
to do which is why I end up resorting to posting here, and posting on 
stack exchange.

Thanks for the reply/response though.
