Hi - Just joined...
« on: July 20, 2014, 10:08:19 AM »
Okay - Hopefully this will work in creating a new thread... although I didn't see that terminology anywhere.
I'm crawling here folks, give me a day or two before I can walk.
Not sure what I'm allowed to tell you about myself, I guess I just keep it general.
So, I am a retired science/computer teacher - been retired since 2001. I live in the Bible Belt of Southeast US.
I'm into computers now and spend a lot of time doing various projects.
If any of you have some questions, feel free to ask.

Thanks Wolf (can I call you that for short?).
I notice that you have a pic for your avatar.
I'll have to look into that and how to add my info.

Look for profile up top --  hover your mouse over it and select the option "Forum Profile"

First option is to set your avatar

You're not obliged to add info to your profile, if you prefer to keep some anonymity.

Anyway, it's easy to add info or an avatar: go to "profile", "forum profile" and there you can add/change your info.

EDIT: Damn, Wolf ninja'd me!

Okay - I got some stuff up in my profile. I don't want to over do it until I get more comfortable here.
I have to sign out for now. I'll be back on later today or tonight to check things out some more.
Thanks for all the "welcomes" from you all.

Greetings, lovely new person.

Hi RichTC, welcome.

Okay - Hopefully this will work in creating a new thread... although I didn't see that terminology anywhere.
I'm crawling here folks, give me a day or two before I can walk.
Not sure what I'm allowed to tell you about myself, I guess I just keep it general.
So, I am a retired science/computer teacher - been retired since 2001. I live in the Bible Belt of Southeast US.

I comiserate.
That could happen to the best of us, I guess.
How's life for an infidel – assuming you, a science teacher, are atheist – among the faithful down there?
