The trick it, it's not so much "build it and they will come". What it is, is the enthusiasm of people like you, Omega, and Opry99er, and countless others. Nobody wants to release into a vacuum - a lot of the things that happened have happened because people got excited about it.
Dude, how is this for excitement... everytime I see your name pop up on the board I make a bee-line for your posts. I eagerly look for the next amazing thing you are going to do, or read something that I can learn from.
