Default Hi from the OZ new guy

Hey all you people in cyberspace. Thought i'd jot down some useless info about yours truly.
Well i live in Atherton, which is 1 hour west of Cairns in Queensland, Australia. It's a boring little town with very little entertainment, hence me dribbling rubbish on a forum.
Bought my first pc about 3 years ago, it was huge 2.4 celeron with a massive 256meg of ram. In the quest for speed and my facination with dvd's i've now got a p4 3.2g , Radeon x700 pcie vid card, only 512 of ddr2 ram though coz i'm too tight to go and get any more.
My brother in law fixes pc's (or so he tries) so i know what basically mekes these tick, but i'd say definately on the less than more side (you will understand if you read my topic i posted!!!)
Anyway G'DAY all, hope to speak or type or chat or whatever you call doing this. (this is the first forum i've joined)!!!!
Cheers guys
