Howdy,
After having broadband for 2 days, I've run out of things to search for.
I'm hoping a site like this full of like minded people will justify the cost (not that i'm paying [Smile] )
Hope to catch you later

Howdy Phizzy Phil and welcome to GC Forums. Your profile says you're a Unix Administrator. I'm thinkin' you'll fit in around here just fine.

Make sure you take a little time to browse through some of the threads and get a feel for the style of the place. No real rules, just some good, respectful traditions.

Mostly, join in, have fun and post often!  - [Big Grin]

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

/me takes bets to see who becomes SuperFan first and gets to keep the av. [Razz]

Oh wait, Snaggy's not retiring avs anymore. That's good then, 'cause I don't approve of gambling!

Sorry alfrin, but I've got to side with the lady on this one. [Razz] I get routinely confused by this "Phil" fellow's posts bearing what I've gotten used to as "maia's avatar." [Wink] Funny how one can get used to a few pixels that sit next to a person's words...

Welcome Phil. You should do just fine here. You have already started off pretty good.

DMN...your not the only one. If any one that is a regular changes their av, it would be very weird!

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

I'm sorry, it was intended as a joke at maia. I'm well aware it's hers and I too think of it as her avatar

I think we're all just joking. I'm not really mad.
