FUEL... where have you been all my life.
Found this (FUEL) yesterday after getting frustrated with Yii.
I've been using codeigniter for ages, basic stuff so far and got side tracked to what seemed like a more feature rich framework.
I'm really glad you released this, thanks, i'm back with codeigniter now.. JOY!.
Will post a site soon, there's not many examples in here yet, working on one right now!
