Hi everybody!

One day I happened to stumble across the Joy of Tech comic strip, and I was very impressed. It might have been the fact that I am a huge geek, but I thought it was hilarious. So hilarious it was, and so geeky am I, that I bought a t-shirt of the Klingon Mac User Group comic to proclaim my geekiness!

Anyway, after that I decided to create an account to post on the message boards, and so here I am introducing myself to the community of Geek Culture. Oh... I haven't actually started the introduction part yet I guess, so here goes.

I just started college as a Freshman at Georgia Tech three weeks ago, and I feel like a new man. The freedom of living on my own, the ability to rely on oneself to survive, the amazing speed of the dorm network connections... Anyway, to make a long story short, I hope that I will fit into this community, and I hope that I will find stuff to post about, and finally I hope that people actually read this far instead of stopping halfway through because the paragraphs made it look longer, not to mention the fact that this ending sentence is so much of a runon it isn't very funny at all, or perhaps it is, but in any case, I hope that I will get to know you all in the near future.

Hi, thanks for the great introduction. Don't let the alphabet soup that is my screen name scare you. Everyone around here calls me PB or Peebs for short. It is traditional to warn you about spungo, but if you're not a sheep I don't think you'll have a problem [Wink]

Have fun around here. The coffee is in the back, don't forget to make a fresh pot if you take the last cup. [Razz]

Welcome!

Rock on on that whole sentence ending, but not quite really ending, or at least at an opportune time, without causing someone to use an inordinate amount of oxygen, before reaching the full stop, thing [Big Grin] . And no, that was not an insult, but a pure appreciation of that writing style - I know I muck up some of my own sentences sometimes when going on a bit too much :-/.

Cheers,
dragon

I was going to do an intro post, but fanboy_uk already wrote all about me, so I'll save the effort [Wink] (he forgot multiple personalities though). Welcome, enjoy, have fun!
