Greetings!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am a long time lurker of this site and just registered yesterday. I just wanted to formally introduce myself and say hi to the community.

I am a tradesman, currently I am an industrial / commercial electrician's apprentice, but hither to this career change I was in IT for most of my life.

I have been A+ certified since 2000, though I did let my Network + certification slide away since about 2002 or so.

I enjoy building computers for people on the side, based on their needs. This all started off with family and close friends back in the late 90's and early 2000's, but has increased a little bit to the "friends of friends" category. I don't let it grow too large, I respect the smaller shops in my area and try to support them as much as possible, any overflow that I cannot take on I always route it to them.

As for my build, well, it constantly changes. I enjoy MMO's and DotA based games, so I am always trying to update what I can when I can. I am currently putting together a build for Guild Wars 2.

The information that I have read here over the past couple of years has been invaluable. This is a great community, and even though it took me a couple of years to do it, I am glad I registered and am part of the community.

Thank you for having me!

Thank you all who posted for the warm welcomes! It is indeed a privilege to be here! I have learned a lot from this site before actually registering, and by registering I have learned something if not of equal value, more valuable than when I simply "lurked"; in the few posts that I have made here I have found out that people are passionate about being here and just as passionate about helping others.

I can only hope that in time, from learning as much as I can, I am able to someday return the favor!
