One thing I've been grateful for for a long time is my nice, powerful, home-built computer. It is so much better than my old 2007 barely functional MacBook 3,1, and getting it was, well, a huge increase in the quality of my life! No longer do I have a computer so bad that even people with terrible computers have it far better than me. To this day, it still feels blazingly fast, and serves me oh-so-reliably! I am also grateful for the power and internet that allows me to continuously run servers on it; I wasn't able to for a while and it is so, so much less terrible now! My dream, for years, was to get a decent computer, and now I have one. Now all that's left is my dream of self-sufficiency and creating an IP-free gift economy, but other than that, I have nearly everything I could ever want!

I am also grateful that SaidIt exists. Thank you /u/Magnora7 and /u/d3rr for creating this, and thank you, everyone, for the amazing community with lots of tact :D !

Yes, we should all be grateful for Saidit and those who started it. Don't forget /u/Tom_Bombadil and /u/useless_aether. They were all there at the beginning and created the wonderful atmosphere we're experiencing.

You all deserve it. I told Jason that the tipping point was back a few weeks ago and there is no going back now. Every day there are more usernames and more posts. You guys are doing something really good here for a lot of people with nowhere else to go, like me. Thanks.

Gracias, my friend!

Edit:
Much respect to Magnora7, and D3rr. The heroes of wisdom, and restraint to make this happen.

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.

Game on gentlemen.

I built my first tower a year and a half ago. man that was a little intimidating manipulating such fragile yet expensive electronics especially the cpu or G card.

My health. I've got lupus, and after years of medicine, I'm finally off of everything. Complete remission.

My health, my computer, and my friends.
