Default Looking for a home...

Hello to all. My name is Mark, im 46 good with my hands (suck at Programming, lol). I am kind of new to this forum thing and am looking for a place to help out.

I have been a machinist, mechanic, general contractor and on and on. I have recently been mostly home bound and really need to find a place to give advise/ tips to building comps (and other stuff)

My last comp just won the Ultra modding contest and I am looking forward to making the next one even better..

Computers are pretty new to me (a couple of years) but I have a good sense of style and love to tinker..

After a month here, you'll probably get carpel tunnel syndrome from typing all the time, unless you hire somebody to type.
