Me and Dad were talking about this place the other week so I thought I'd pop my head in. Nice to see the regulars are still around!

:-0 Did ya'll miss me?

Quick update, I know I'm not here anymore because interests have shifted from home hardware to software and embedded hardware (by embedded I mean ITX)

I had a friend die after an epileptic fit when she was 16, it would have been her 21st in March IIRC.

3 simple steps to solve this problem are: 1. A probationary period for all new comers, where their posts are moderated before being made public.
