Hi, having registered and started using this forum about a week ago, I am new here.

I am a software developer (mainly .net) with interest in IT and bodybuilding, sometimes do some reading about history and politics too.

It is great to meet you and I've already received some good advice for a couple of posts I posted.

Welcome!

We're sometimes a crazy bunch (being geeks an all) but somewhere on here someone has an answer for just about any query, and a query about several things you can answer.

A great community to be part of, just follow the FUG and have a blast! :)
