Greetings, all you AHK junkies! This is my very first post here.
Recently, I had a C: drive failure that led me to reinstall everything, including AHK. Upon looking for the latest download, I learned the long and rather sad history of it, and how the community was abandoned by he-who-shall-not-be-named. I'm sad that the .com domain is still getting better rank from Google than this one.
I'm a huge fan of AHK, and I can honestly say that it helped to change the direction of my IT career - more towards software development. Being an old-school, dirty hippie, I love open source projects and the communities that grow around them. That plus my love for AHK in general has - poetically I think - dropped me so neatly at your feet.
I am both relieved and inspired that the Foundation has risen from the ugly wreckage. The maturity, compassion and unending enthusiasm of this community is impressive, and though I probably should lurk more, I think I already love all of you.
PLEASE, if there is ever anything I can do for the Foundation, this community or anyone in it, let me know. Regardless, I plan to do all I can for AutoHotkey.
Thank you, Tank, Chris, and all those responsible for the rescue. I'm forever in your debt. I hope you never forget what it means to so many.
