Hi all, my name is Rik and ive joined to get and give help. Im a 36 yr old who works in the electronics trade so i know a bit about hardware. I have a home build pc and i dont believe in wasting money buying a ready built one. My case is an old server case that i have adapted somewhat to my own needs. I love playing around with electronics and coming up with ideas, problem is, i often have trouble putting them into practice. For example, i have 3 lighting projects on the go at the mo, 2 of then im short of parts and 1 im short of knowledge. Im also now the proud owner of an xbox which aint gonna remain standard looking for long. P.S. im new not only to this site (which i think is exelent) but im new to being online. The last time i had a connection was about 7 yrs ago with compuserve and things have changed a lot and for the better. So please forgive any ignorance when it comes to site and net use.
