Default Hi everyone from Michigan!

Hello everyone

I've been a computer hobbiest for a while now. I have well over a dozen computers, most of them older desktops but they still count :P

My main computers are a windows seven desktop with six GBs RAM and a terabyte HD. And a 728geforce gaming video card I think (the one for final fantasy fourteen, which sucked by the way...)

Then I have a desktop that I built. A pentium four cpu linux tower. Has kororaa on it.

My first personal computer was my first laptop, a compaq presario v2000. I have sense upgraded it with a gig and a half of RAM and a 120GB HD.

My favorite right now is perhaps my brand new $200 Chromebook c7 that I got the day after christmas at best buy They day after I put Ubuntu linux on it lol. I love that little thing. I have all my photo, video, audio, editing and pretty much everything I could think of on it already.

One thing though, I am paranoid about security. My firefox has at least a dozen add ons for security alone (even on the linux computers) and I have anti-virus on all computers. On the linux computers I have clamav/tk and avast! along with chkrootkit and rkhunter.

Perhaps my more bigger hobbies are raising and keeping plants and animals. I keep many exotic/rare plants and animals. Psuedolithos, lithops, adeniums, pachypodiums, jades, crassula, climbing onions (sea onions), cacti, and many other caudex growing or succulent plants. Then I keep and breed beetles, scorpions, tarantulas, shrimp, and many other invertebrates. Along with my many fish tanks, which can contain pufferfish to my endlers livebearers.

I also have my own website about Tillandsia (Air plants). Called The Tillandsia Forums. They are wonderful plants. They need no roots to survive and grow on trees or other objects

Well, Hello everyone

Nice introduction, welcome to the forums.
