oh hai!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Whenever folks need advice online, especially in the dark art (ok not so dark anymore) I have almost always referred them to this site. But until I sat down and asked myself if I was a member on the site yet, my answer was "no."

How sad.

So I'm here to fix that, and with a nickname I've never used before.

Most of you educated folks will look at my nick and go "It's Terabyte, not Tetrabyte" - well, there's an interesting story behind it.

A guy at my office always refers to his external drive as his "Tetrabyte hard drive" - every one of us in IT have to stifle our laughs, because even though he's been corrected on multiple occasions, he still calls it that.

So since I know it's not the real term, Faketetrabyte was born. Hooray.

I don't know what constitutes a good "oh hallo!" thread, but there's my entry.

Things about me that are spiffy:

I used to be a tech forum moderator elsewhere. I'm not looking to rise the ranks here, but I'll do my part as a member to make sure the nasty stuff is avoided.

I like long walks down MMO beaches, slaying monsters with prejudice, and sitting down to a good session of Minecraft with my groupies on my own hosted server.

Lately I've been giggling my arse off while downloading the entire internet with our new Metro Ethernet 100/100 connection at work, and trying to enforce IT policy that isn't too stoneage.

Oh, and filling out my system profiler so you guys can all laugh at my stock clockishness. wink.gif

How are you guys doin?

I went through and added them to my profile before I ever posted anything, but I didn't look to see if there was a way to auto add them to my siggy.

I don't overclock much these days, but it's tempting to start up again.
