I've been waiting for a nice day to post in this thread.  smiley

I'm a student way up here in Fairbanks, AK; working towards B.S.'s in Elect. Engr. and Math.  I spend far too much of my time surfing the internet (who doesn't?).

I was lucky enough to choose a dorm room facing south, which on days like today gives me a glorious view of the mountains.  Here are some photos I snapped from my window this evening (linked to better, but bigger, versions).

Looking to the SE, S, and SW (sorry for the formatting here):


And that little bump off to the right (see high-res) is none other than the famous Mt. McKinley.

My name is Lew. I live in White Plains, NY.  I got started in computers when the company I worked for  ( Retail Toy Stores ) computerized with a Texas Instrument 990  in 1978. The sucker was huge,. Needed it's own room and A/C.  Total of 64 K ram. TI Basic.
In 1996 a started on a new job. Wow  12" Orange screen moniotrs and DOS 5.0.  Well now it's
2006 and at least I got them to move up to 17" color screens but were still using DOS 5.0 on the server.  At least I have a desktop with XP.

This is a terrific site.

Small world it is but Canada a big country I live in Alberta about 4000kms west of Toronto.
Bebington was my home town.  But we left there when I was 5 so I remember only the bits that I've seen since then.  Not been back to UK for over ten years now.

This is very unlikely, but maybe it is a small world after all. What part of Alberta are you living in and how long have you been there? I became friends with a young lady who was from somewhere in southern Alberta--I can't remember the name of it without looking at a map--we lost contact years ago and I've been trying to look her up. She went to college in Lethbridge in the past few years and either lived there originally or some town relatively nearby. Anyway, her name is Kristi Derricott. Know any Derricotts?

My name is Tricia and I'm a PC addict - I like trying new apps,
and I run my own freeware & chat forum. I came across this forum, quite by
accident and I liked the look of it. I have made a donation, and
will drop in when I can. It's so nice to meet you all.

Hi everyone, 44 British and I moved to Goa India  a little over 2 years ago. Currently I am learning to analyze HJT logs in an attempt to fight the scumbags.  Oh how I miss the rolling hills of Blighty!  Cool

Well, my name is Reinhard, I am from Munich, Germany, and I started my fight "man vs. machine" in my very early days.



I hope, for 10x8 chess to become more popular some day, and my multivariant program SMIRF to play it well then.

Hi y'all; Johnny Bramham from Solihull, West Midlands, UK chipping in with my four pennyworth.
Now 58, I've been married 34 years, have four kids and three grandkids. 
I started off in the Royal Navy as a junior and left as a P.O eight years later.
I've been a motor mechanic in the trade ever since, working on construction plant, HGV's and cars .
Forced into having to use a PC to make my life easier in my part-time job as a local Councillor, I now refurb older PC's for re-use by disadvantaged kids in my area and generally try to get a better understanding of how they work and making them better.
I built this rig myself, only an XP athlon 2700, but it works well enough so I'm going for a dual Xeon system next with bits bought from eBay.
I'm looking forward now to getting to know more about the programming and software side of things.
Best of British to all of you!
JB.

Hi, my name is Marcos and I'm from Spain. I'm 22 years old and I'm studying Computer Engineering. Not working in anything, though I help my parents from time to time working in the fields. I love tinkering with the PC, although the thing I like most in this world is music (my parents wouldn't believe this, as they always complain about the time spent with the PC). Recently discovered the site, and I think this is really a neat idea, sitting in the middle grounds between shareware and freeware. I wish for the site a lot of success!

Hi everybody, I am the new guy around. I come from Serbia (southeastern Europe) , 36, working as a network admin in a bank. Have been working with computers since my early teens. This means: ZX81 -> ZX Spectrum -> XT -> AT -> 386 -> ... you can guess how it goes further... smiley

Fortunately I have many other interests as well. Sports (motorracing, volelyball, basketball, soccer, skiing...), music, science, history, movies... you name it I got it. Wink

Married, two daughters (1 and 5 years old).

So, this site and the concept around it is cleverly designed. I hope it will survive all the challenges that the internet is bringing, and last for a long time.

Good luck to all

Hi Everyone,
Just joined and donated. What a great site! My name is Jason, but I am better known as "Wolf". I am a professional poker player and am about to launch a new business (hopefully this next week) that I think is going to be amazingly successful. I was looking on a search engine for an email client that would let me customize the appearance of individual mail folders, and I ended up here, writing this 45 min later.

I live in Las Vegas, but travel alot. When I am home, I spend as much time as I possibley can at a wolf sanctuary about 3 hrs away. I volunteer there, give tours and teach people about wolves. This wonderful pack of has adopted me as their hairless wolf brother. When there are no tours, I nap with them and they bring me meat when they think I am hungry. Seriously! LOL Anyway, go check out my buddies at wolfmountain.com. (registered none-profit organization)

OK, have to go check out more of this site. Hope to meet some of you along the way...
Have a great night everyone!

It truly is and I am very grateful and blessed to be in their pack.  I have bottle fed several of them, and those wolves look up to me as an elder, while I am repectfully reminded of my place by the wolves higher up the chain than me.

If you are ever in the Vegas/So Cal area, let me know. This is the only wolf sanctuary in the country where you actually get to go in and interact with some of the wolves.


Here is a pic of me howling with the alpha male of the pack. We were all howling one time and he came over to howl with me. It was quite an honor and this is one of my favorite pics.
