This is a really great post, straight to the point, no fluffy crap and simple to read. I really appreciate this. I have went through some of the stuff you mentioned already, but some is yet to come. I’m driving towards the light (or a huge black hole) and this post is a good high-level heads-up. Thanks writing this.
Ps: I need to “say” this. It really annoying, borderline ridiculous some comments some people do. The great Interweb merlins of hindsight that know everything and are sure of all this would never happen to them. I beg to differ, your post is useful even if it says some things that I already know, even if it says things that seem obvious. Useful.
