a hello long time in the making
hello. I actually joined in april but i was more concerned with getting some info and learning. I have enjoyed this site as i am a IT guy and i dont get a lot of time on a computer that isnt about work. This site is very well put together so thank you to the people that created it and do the upkeep.
I will try my best to be active and bring something to the table. For the first 4 months of Wii life for me i was only learning but now i have some confidence in some things that i feel i can start helping out and passing along info.
BTW i am a old fart so if Matlock is on i will not doing anything. unless its the early bird special :P
