Greetings, one and all! It's only been... several years...
Yes, I am still alive. Through something of a resurgent interest in computer fiddling and constant pestering by one XyroTR1, I've decided that I may actually start posting here again... a little... we'll see.
I've kinda been lurking and reading a few posts the last few weeks, figured I'd go ahead and reintroduce myself as it were, and see if there's still anyone around here that remembers me, or if I remember them.
Much has changed! For one, I'm pretty much entirely an Intel guy now... though I still rock an ATi/AMD graphics card, so maybe I still hold onto some sentimental love for AMD or somethin'.
I'm also pretty far out of the loop on the in-depth understanding of the technology these days... mostly cause I realized the more I learned about it, the more money I spent on it.
But, I've got myself a nice little Sandy Bridge/P67 setup, still in-touch with the overclocking drive running it at 4.5GHz, so all is not lost! Nor am I completely n00b, just not drilling down to the architectural level any more I guess.
A new area of budding expertise for me is Networking, though! I'm CCNA-certified, working on my CCNA Security cert, and currently a Network Support Engineer for one of the largest computer and technology companies in the world, so I know my way around routing and switching with some degree of confidence, and it's a lot more fun work than my last gig too. Sadly the pay isn't that much more, but meh..
Anywho, tl;dr, I may be around more, snooping in your threads and whatnot.
