Hi,
I've been a long time lurker here,
15 years according to my account creation date...


I decided it was time I started contributing.

A bit about me.
I have been in IT 'forever' currently working in the Hardware side of things from Servers to networking and CAD/Video editing desktops & VC & heaps more.
I got into computers in the XT 8086/8088 & Kaypro/CP/M days and was into the WWW in the early/mid 90'swhen social media was BBS & IRC. And you used 'Hotdog' to create Html websites & Netscape was battling Internet Explorer for dominance.

I spent 7 years in Software development,

In my spare time I enjoy the 'great outdoors' (When I'm not doing DIY on the house or working on my 'projects')

I can Weld & CAD & Fibreglass & used to be able to program micro controllers....
& I have a bit of a medical background as well....

That looks like a computer veteran's resume across many areas. 1st post in 15 years ... I wish I had that kind of patience.
