Welcome to APUG.

Yes, there are a lot of members and subscribers here who feel exactly the same way. Creating with your own two hands such that you truly own the work can be far more fulfilling than letting some anonymous software engineers do it for you. And that's coming from someone who has practiced software engineering for the last 27+ years...

Best of luck here. And remember the cliché, "the only silly question is the question not asked." Lots of people around here who are anxious to help. The depth of knowledge is truly astounding. I continue to be amazed.
