Default New here

Hey. What's up.
I am new here. I though i wanted to join a second forum sense i am only a member of one single forum.... expect XDA, but i don't visit there often... at all actually
I hope to be a part of some good discussions and i hope to help some people in need. .. i also hope this forum is not to overcrowded... if it is, i am sorry, i am gonna leave again.. My current forum isn't. that's why we get to know each other.

Here are a little about me:
I am a Danish guy at the age of 23. My other 2 interest than computers are reptiles (mostly snakes) and motorcycles.
I am a 3 year member of Computerforums.org. with 2630 posts.
I have been interested in computers for 6 years now.
I am educated IT-supporter and i currently work as an "IT-guy" at a school.
Nice and relaxing job actually. It's kinda fun being the only guy of 50 working here that know more then average ^^

Great to have you amongst us, mate.

No, we are not overcrowded [unfortunately] but we do have what I like to think of as a great community. Give us some time while you kick the wheels so to speak.

Yea definitely not overcrowded. You'll quickly realize there are a couple niches in the community. Basically, Game Hunter guys have all chats in general gaming and I think they spend their whole work day chatting on the boards here

I pretty much take care of the hardware sections with help from others if I'm out and not on my PC.

Carnage takes care of everything else

glad to meet you all.
Quick question. I made a post in the hardware section. It needed admin approval before it would be shown. Is it because my "level" is Newb Techie?
Is that also why i can't find an option to make a signature?
