Hi this is Aamir Awan ....I'm really glad you decided to check this out. I've held off doing this for a while because I knew there were already a bunch of really great learning sites out there. But after the tremendous response I received when I asked the folks who subscribe to my newsletter about it, I thought it was about time. I hope you enjoy your stay. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me about them and I'll do all I can do help. Oh - and have fun!
