WRI,

Since Home edition offers me only 30 days tech support and I am not a
student around other Mathematica using students on a campus. And
buying expensive books does only cover so much (And many are outdated
or does not cover areas outside of math like the Frontend), where on
the internet do I find help thats more real time? This group has been
very helpful, but I want more rapid turn around time, and someone to
teach why some code is good and mine is bad so I learn from mistakes .
And a big thanks for the few who has taught me well. :-)

I do find it strange there is not a more active WRI collection of
people part of a tech support forum somewhere. A whiteboard version of
the FE to aid in support could be a good direction. Collaborative
editing FE in real time somehow? How about a Home Ed users forum on
WRI site??

Or perhaps allow Home Edition users email support; if it is so, be
clear it is so and how long the turn around time for a reply. Or
encourage local universities to create local Mathematica support
groups.

Mathematics is a social activity as much as any other creative one;
helping each other is a great way to enjoy learning.

Andrew, seeking some shoulders to stand on ;-)
