New Kid on the Cul-De-Sac

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN,

I'm KoopaTroopa and I'm new to the who computer construction industry. Recently over the past few weeks I have gathered quick interest in building my own computer. My cousin, who has built computers since he was 14, has sold me on the wonder of building one's own computer. So I have been doing a lot of research and posted my prospected build on other forums, building up to the point when I would finally post here. I look forward to being a part of the OCN community.

A couple things about me are that I am an avid gamer and prefer mmorpg and rts and I love to use CAD and want to try my hand a photoshop. I am a teacher and a grad student shooting for a master's in Special Education. And I enjoy Frank's Red Hot Sauce.

Cheers,
KoopaTroopa

Thanks guys for the welcome, I appreciate it. I'm sure I will be asking a bunch of questions.

I do enjoy hot sauce, but I found that Frank's is the tastiest. I have never tried a ghost pepper hot sauce, but I have tried a habanero sauce and that was spicy. I just recently had a chance to visit the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY where Buffalo Wings supposedly were created and ordered their "suicide" wings. My lips were burning for a little bit, but it was an enjoyable burn.

My sister-in law went to Belize,South America last year and brought me back some hot sauce. I finished them about a month later. I find Tabasco has way too much vinegar for my taste. I have some hot sauce that's made locally in Milwaukee Wi. It's called Layton fruit market Hell's kitchen habanero hot sauce. It's hot,but good.

In college a roommate of mine have me try this hot sauce one time as an initiation. All he put on a spoon was a teeny-tiny drop. Pig-headed me, I asked for more and he laughingly agreed. Well I put the spoon in my mouth and he asked me how I was. I replied that I was okay... He waited 10 seconds and asked again. I could barely speak. I drank a half gallon of milk and my lips were on fire for the next day and a half. Needless to say I never touched the stuff again.

In terms of a good hot sauce the Mexican restaurant Pancheros makes a wonderful sauce called Flavolcano. It's has a nice kick, but it isn't too hot.
