Hey all, I'm just looking for a new group of people I can relate to. The posts here have made me laugh and you seem like a great bunch of people so I thought I'd register!

I'm a Web Developer (currently enjoying the luxury of working from home though I'm not sure how long I will last before cabin fever claims me) and I like offroading in my Jeep (I'm the President and founder of a large Jeep club in Colorado).

So if a new girl just jumps in will she be run out of town?

Looking forward to the witty banter!

Good to have you along here! I'm csk, some of my alternate personalities should be along to greet you shortly.

And I'm quite sure that the last thing the geeks here will do to a geeky new girl is run her out of town [Wink]

Well, it would be the last thing, wouldn't it?
I mean, once she's been run out of town, we'd have no opportunity to torment her further...

... unless we stalk her, but I think the court order is still in effect from the last time.

I thought we'd discovered that each individual court order only applies to one person? [Confused]

Anyway, hey OffroadGirl, welcome to GC [thumbsup]

That's not fair. If we can't pick on the new ones, then who can we pick on?

Hello and welcome.

I don't have my standard picture link of a Macintosh with the hello. The link is at work and It's the weekend so I'm feeling to lazy to look one up.

And btw Don't feed the animals ........

It seems that a good portion of the members are Mac owners -- is this a Mac type of forum? I am all about building and improving my PC and I'm not into Macs in the slightest.

Is that a problem? Will there be whispering behind my back? I fear the worst...

Well, there's a definite Mac bias around, but you won't be the only PC user, either. Generally we all get along well, whichever platform/OS we happen to choose. Well, apart from the occasional good natured jab, which usually results in the Mac users being referred to as black beret wearing elitists [Wink]

Well, I've got 4 computers running 6 different operating systems, and only one of those is a mac.

Won't stop me whispering about you behind your back though .... [Wink]

Hi OffroadGirl, welcome to the forums. [Big Grin] [thumbsup]

At first glance I thought that said, "we can always pick UP spungo." I was going to suggest that you weren't his type (and by type I mean breed.)

Welcome new person. I'm sure you won't be run out -- you're a female geek. But if you came here looking for witty banter, you're in the wrong place. [Wink]

Sorry to take so long welcoming you OffRoadGirl,

(Sorry to Shroom too, but this time I was out rigging up a newbie with a nice Mac setup... [Wink] )

Yeah there is a Mac bias here, but we're Geeks, one of the things I like about it here (and I'm fairly new too) is the lack of OS trolls and zealots...

Join in and enjoy (oh and check out AF2YK it rocks, well I LOL'd [Smile] )

Hey! Welcome to the forum. Great to see more and more women joining. The testosterone poisoning around here, once again, gets a little more diluted.
