Another ;) newbie

  1. Greetings to this most congenial group!
    I found y'all 'cause I have a question (of course!) (still working on it). I also lurk (my news server doesn't allow posting :() in a couple of hardware groups. The first thing I noticed is that everyone is much nicer in these forums. The newsgroups are troves of information, but the denizens flame a lot and use foul language.
    A bit of background: I've been dinking around with computers since my C= 64 back in 1983 (I still have it). I've built 3 or 4 PCs over the last few years, so now I have just enough knowledge to be extremely dangerous :) I read a lot in these forums and in the newsgroups, and I try to pass along information I've acquired when someone asks something that I think I know something about.

    *Big* Tolkien fan. First read the Trilogy in '69 (do the math :grinthumb )
    See you all around here!

Hope you enjoy your stay, and please feel free to take part in any discussions that catch your interest. You can also discuss anything you like, not just computer related stuff, so do whatever takes your fancy. Have fun.
