Almost daily, someone calls me Santa Claus. Fix their computer and you get called all kinds of nice things. But that's not what keeps me believing. It's the countless little things I see people doing for each other, every day. And I'm not talking about the big stuff here, like donating their time, or money to charity. Both of which are good ideas, by the way.
I'm talking about the little things, which people go out of their way to do for each other. Be it a surprise baby shower, to people helping out each other, right here on the CNET forums. Yes, I know there's a lot of my computer is better than yours, but more importantly, it's also a lot ordinary people, sharing their knowledge with other users, who mean nothing to them, Just for the sake of sharing.
I like to imagine them sitting there, reading a despite plea for help, and saying to themselves, I can answer that. Then actually taking the time to do so. We have a wonderful rescores here at CNET. It informs, educates, and yes, delights us. We should never, ever lose sight of that, or take it for granted.
Here's wishing you all, a Mary Christmas, Happy Holladay's, or however you say it, a magical time of year.
