Hello! My name is Colin Fagras and I'm a new forum member as of tonight. These forums seem like a great resource for all things math related, especially for those seeking math help. While not a math genius, I've always enjoyed the subject and have a great appreciation for learning and education. I'm a professional web developer for a living and I currently live in the beautiful state of Arkansas. When I'm not working (or fly fishing), I spend lots of time working on my calculator website CalculateWhat.com which features a large variety of various web-based calculators for anything and everything under the sun, including dozens of math related calculators. I think lots of members here might find various parts of my website useful and quite related.
It's nice to meet everyone and I hope I can help contribute to this community of learners.
Welcome to the forum!
In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Thanks! I'm glad I'm not the only one awake so late (unless ya'll are in far different time zones)! Nice to meet you both, this forum looks really helpful and friendly.
Thanks for the nice words on the forum!
