Hello and Well Met

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I use the name Toadicus but otherwise I am mostly human.
I found this site after a little searching and I am very pleased with the helpful posts both in response to my own and to others. I'll not name names but other forums are more like arenas to attack other peoples ideas.

I have an electrical / construction engineering background and I play 3D games when the wife is not around as a source of fun. I have a Level 75 Druid with over 1700 AAs in a game called EverQuest, but I have also been playing Quake, TF, BF since long before AM2, PCI-E etc etc. In fact, my first computer was an Oliveti M21 portable which cost over $9k in 1981 and had 64 KB of memory.

Now, I build up a new system about every year, with a few smaller up-grades in between, and have a lot of fun doing it. I am completely ATi / AMD from the tip of my toes to the top of my bald, shaved head.

I also have a fondness for Arctic cooling products although I am rather mad at them at this time.

.... thats enough for now, Thanj you all for having me and be at peace.
