Time for another "New Member" thread.

We usually manage to coax a few people forward to Register, or say Hello etc. If you're a new member and just haven't seen a place yet to add a comment try it here. Say hello, where you're from, what you do, etc. etc. (Testing 1,2,3 if you want ..)

Any questions how to do something? How to use the Smiley Guys? ( ) quote, use bold lettering?

Existing Members: if you have anything you'd like to add here please do. Any suggestions for New Members? Anything you think might help someone that's unsure how to navigate this BB to read, or add comments, start a new thread etc. etc. Maybe there's something that confused you at first that you can share with others?

Or just say Hello too ...

Thats simple to fix, put the monitor behind you and a mirror in front, then you can also say things like "Every time I look at myself I can't believe how awesome I am"

If you are just looking at this BB,
Jump in and have some fun!.
I think that the general concensus here is to help one another out, all jokes aside, I think that we solve most problems through our collective knowledge.

Come on in, it's pretty friendly around here.

There are a lot of good sparkies here willing to offer a hand. We can get into some pretty deep technical discussions from time to time, but we're always ready to have a bit of a joke as well. I think we have about the right balance.
