I want to start by saying thank you for all the work the people who put together communities like this one together. It really makes me feel good to know that someone is helping to develope the human aspect of the internet instead of only the commercial engine we have seen grow out of control.

I am not very savvy but if I come across something that I know something about I will try to help.

I am a native New Yorker who has lived in italy for two years Barcelona for one year and Colombia for one year and a half total over a few years.

Just wanted to say Hi. I am starting a new community website up in Alaska and came across this website. I really like how everything is set up. Just the layout of your website alone has given me several ideas on improving my site. Thanks.


Hi. I'm the head moderator at a fairly new website for a fairly new musician. I'm a neophyte to the moderating business, but we're all volunteer and I had the most experience working with people, so I got the job. I've been looking for ideas on ways to improve the content of our forum, and of course increase our numbers, and so I was delighted to find this forum. We're learning as we go, and I anticipate finding people to chat with here who have similar issues.

You will understand this. It is an algorithm. Very clever of them, and
a fairly complex program. Buildings were designed with eight
numbers 1 to 8. That's all. Historically they are known as the first and
second Pythagorean tetraktys. Their version of their primeval Big
Bang, the central point where the algorithm starts. A pair of
compasses, a ruler and scales. The procedure explains why they were
able to build such complex buildins. But I must be boring you.

Hi Guys-

Hobbies-Waterfowler,decoy carver working with Labs
married w/ kids grown and out on their own

I have joined this site with the intention of soaking up as much good info as I can. I am not techno literate to the extent many of you are here and so I may shake my head a few times trying to make sense of it all.
I have a little site and like I read someones post on here earlier any 3rd grader can follow the how tos and make a site. My goal however is to offer the best site I can, and that means becoming more www. savvy.
Tonight I was asked to look into setting up a website for a local waterfowl chapter. I have conceptualization skills but limited technical abilities. but as they say willing to learn.

Trivia: My son in law works for a company as a programmer contracted to EA games. Being a gamer as well I think thats pretty cool.

South Africa, nope no lions in my backyard either.
I am an adreniline junkie, so no stamp collection.

Anything fast paced, heavy metal, etc.
Senior IT Administrator.
Being around friends, chinese food.
People asking to many questions.
Movies, no. Tv, no. Games, adventure and rpg. Clubbing, yeah.

Think that is more than enough information I should give out to complete total strangers I haven't met, otherwise you are going to start asking questions, and I dislike being asked questions and I sure don't want not to like any of you but if you ask me questions I don't like I will certainly develop a dislike in you and you won't like it when I don't like you.

Lost you there? Not. Must be loosing my touch then.

Anyway hope to talk, argue and dispute with you folks in the upcoming time.
