OK fine, I guess I should check in.

A long time ago (6+ years I think), I stumbled upon DC while searching the internet for free software. I was never a very active poster but there was a point in time that I read every thread voraciously. It was soon after that Mouser made the programming school and I was hooked into doing the C++ exercises and getting a very cool first exposure to programming with some encouraging pushes from Mouser and other DC'ers. Because of the programming school I majored in CS in College am now am a full time developer in downtown Chicago. I also grew up, got married, had a kid with a second on the way leaving a lot less time to spend browsing DC and the Internet in general.

I attribute much of the success in my career to the DC programming school. If it was not for that I would have most likely majored in a different field and only would have had an interest in software as a hobby and not as a career path. I do occasionally browse the forums so don't be surprised is I suddenly post on some random thread.

DC is a great community and I hope it will remain strong for many years to come.

What Google may not realize is that by shutting down GR they are causing a loss of consumer confidence in their other products as well (at least among those that use GR like myself). I started using GR because I was already using many of Google's other services such as GMail and Documents so GR was just an extension of that. Because I was using so many of G-Products I developed a lot of brand loyalty. I think that now I will be much more open to considering alternatives to their other products as well. I definitely consider this move to be the beginning of the end of my use of Google services.

Google has by far the best feed reader. It seriously baffles me as to why they would do this.
