"mug's game:" if that's what you think, or, how you feel, why play the game ? what do you win, or lose ?

for me, the "great game" on CP is the pursuit of technical excellence, where "excellence" means improving myself through continual learning, not reaching some impossible (given my age, and priorities of other interests) degree of perfection. that CP provides a friendly context where that improvement can be fostered by my peers, and mentors: that's a blessing !

however, i must admit to occasionally wishing I could wake up and be Richard Deeming, or Marc Clifton, or OriginalGriff, or Pete O'Hanlon ... for a while !
