  1. hi all,

    i jus joined here after spending a while in ziff davis media forum at extemetech and pc mag. i jus joined here to see wut it is like.
    btw, extremetech is a rilli good forum and i went from abssolute n00b last summer to knowing quite a bit from there. i hope i will pick up alot more knowledge here during my prolonged summer break.

    i've been an intel fanboy ever since i got me pentium 166 system so all you amd fans try not to give me a hard time k? im only 14 =)

    i still have a lot of knowledge to pick up and i hope this is the place!

    Sound the alarm!!!!!!!!!!

    Just kidding. Welcome to TechSpot.

    Few hints about TechSpot:

    1. Don't use excessive periods "......."
    2. Don't pay attention to anyone here.
    3. The search option is very useful, you'll probably find that lots of questions have been asked and answered here.
    4. When asking questions make sure you give us enough information, like the type of hardware that you have, version of drivers, nature of problem and description.
    5. Wear a cup at all times.
    6. Use spell check.

    Do all of the above and I'm sure you will love TS :). It is the only forum I participate in, other than the occasional Rage3D (but everytime I post there I end up smacking someone upside the head for being a embacil) :D

    Look forward to seeing your participate.

    No offense bud, but another tip: Spell checking. jus, wut, and rilli aren't good things to use. Might offend some of the older folks, you know. ;)

    Really though, just keep your wits about you, ignore it if someone calls you a fool, ask lotsa questions, and you can learn lots here. I've been working in computers a while and I find stuff to learn.

    Welcome to TS!

    I hope you enjoy your stay. And don't be afraid to ask questions, or try to help others. If you don't know the correct answer, but might have an idea post it. Someone might correct you, but that is another learning experience.

    Seriously though, there are a lot of good people here and we hope to continue through the learning experience, both young and old can learn together, regardless of spelling and overpunctuation :D
