I will answer the first question, I'm not really sure why I couldn't get into introduction, but I dont seem to have a problem on any other forum (but I haven't really tried any others yet)
Ive recently found this site, and loved the info and decided to join. I have been looking for a cool place to have discussions. This seemed like a good place, Ive been looking for a new home from the place I usually frequent.
And thank you all for the warm welcome. I hope to posting soon, I'm still just looking around for a subject that I would like to join into. I dont usually get online until very late, and I wasn't sure if many people were on in the late evenings.
