View Full Version : Introduction & a Warning

01-22-2002, 04:18 AM
Well, I put off saying hello for long enough!

At 40, I'm a bit of a late starter. But, I do get it, I really do. It was a rough holiday season though, so it will be a loooong time before I get to try most of the smokes I've been reading about.

That said, I am SO HAPPY this site has been saved. All last month I was scouring the database for reviews before it disappeared. Just in time came the welcome news of the sale! Thanks guys, truly.

Ah yes, the WARNING.
I've learned so much already from this board (seen the rest-no comment), I have to warn you all-I have FNG questions for the FOGs.
I'll be nice and try to keep them down to a couple a week!

OK, done for now. Hello to all and it's GREAT to be here (since HERE is still here to be at).

Yeah , I'll get my sig up soon!

A late Welcome, I was off scouring the net for "articles of interest" to the Board.

You will find that most any question you have will generate some sort of answer, not always the one you want though! :lol:

Geez everyone, I logout for a few hours and find 3 pages of hellos!!
Thank you all!


I know I'll fit in if I can just not offend anyone for a week or so. :bowdown:

I thought I went too far with the lizard comment, :bowdown: so I 'm glad to see Jefslat already ragged MetsFan back. (whew) :bowdown:

I'm headin' to the store soon for Parrot food.
She's VERY large and doesn't mind the taste of flesh (mine!) when hungry. :bowdown:


Forgot to mention:
With the language restrictions on anothe board, I think my asterisk key is gettin worn out.

So I'll let someone else 'splain FNG & FOG !

:bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

Welcome! It is good to have a questioning mind. Sometimes the answers are different and amazing.

Welcome Fellow Puffer, no need for excuses about being an older newbie (is that an oxymoron???) I'm clippin' 50 and still learnin' the ropes.Again, welcome..lookind forward to your posts...

01-24-2002, 03:41 AM
Thanks, 24 hrs ago, my hard drive took a HARD, HARD crash. Lost most everything, most replaceable, and only now have gotten an external FireWire drive to work for logging on.

I think the internal was a physical head crash 'cause I can't even readdress all the bad sectors.

This bites!
:( :( :( :( :(


01-27-2002, 12:04 AM
Welcome sir, I have learned these last few weeks that these folks are worth spending time with. I only get to be here on weekends but they don't seem to mind. :) Sorry to hear about the hard drive. :)

My computer barfed a couple of weeks ago. Luckily it was just a bad IDE controller so everything was salvaged.
A new mobo, and cpu, and all's well.

Warning Schmarning! that's why we're all here after all! Even FOG's are always learning new things here.
