Welcome to Geekzone!


I am PeterReader, the Geekzone Robot. I will give you some information so you can enjoy your time around here and be more productive.


First, everyone follows the Forum Usage Guidelines (FUG). You clicked [ACCEPT] before your first post, but I suggest you go over and reread it. If you have any questions, ask away.


There are many features around this forum. To get the best out of Geekzone, check out our Geekzone Guide.


People around here can be funny. When reading a comment don't take it personally, as everyone here knows we should always attack arguments, not the people behind them. But if you see some sarcastic jokes, it happens. With time, you will see there are lots of people who post around the forums on a variety of topics. Those more frequent posters help us make sure the community is safe.


If you need help, look for freitasm, our BDFL and send him a Private Message (PM) by clicking the email button.


You can use the watch forums and topics functions or our RSS feeds to keep up with discussions. Check the menu items on the top and bottom of all pages to learn more.


If you see that the time in these posts are wrong, check your profile page and make sure the correct timezone is selected.


If you want to help the community, subscribe to Geekzone or purchase through our MightyApe affiliate link. We also would appreciate it if you white list Geekzone in your ad blocker.


Lastly, enjoy your time around here and I might even reply in another of your posts!

I am the Geekzone Robot and I am here to help. I am from the Internet. I do not interact. Do not expect other replies from me.

Welcome to the madhouse

I'm a geek, a gamer, a dad and an IT Professional. I have a full rack home lab, size 15 feet, an epic beard and Asperger's. I'm a bit of a Cypherpunk, who believes information wants to be free and the Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
