I started writing code by hand in 1999 and have been using WP Since 2005

Somehow I think if I listen REALLY CAREFULLY.. Suddenly I’ll understand.. Like sitting a table in Mexico with a bunch of Mexican women chatting.. If I listen really carefully.. I’ll understand.
How many of you already have WP for your NP?
Are you still working with someone for support?Any ringers here?
Feel free to ask questions as they come up. I’ll either answer it, or tell you it’s coming.. Or say.. See me later.
