    There are lots of cool, nice, smart, AND helpful people on this board; hopefully this thread will let us built some familiarity and associations to the names on here. :)

    You don't have to get too personal, after all, this is the world wide intrawebs.

    You could just state 1st name, age, occupation, hobbies and interests?

    1st name: Kyle

    Age: 32

    Occupation: Maintenance Engineer

    Hobbies/Interests: I have always loved to fix things -mechanical especially. I started out at a young age; taking things apart to see how they tick, eventually I started being able to put them back together so they work! In my teens when I started driving, I got into building engines and transmissions -car's started becoming a big part of my life at that point. Today I have an Audi A4 quattro that I have heavy mods in; big turbo w/fueling, free flowing SS exhaust, adjustable coilovers and beefy anti-sway bars, lightened flywheel with stronger cluch, wider stickier tires, blah, blah, blah....been my money pit, but it's fun -my fun daily driver/weekend warrior.

    I've been pretty into photography ever since digital cameras hit the market. I bought a Nikon D90 last year, and man I love it. I really enjoy taking pictures, and it's probably my new favorite hobby(well, outside of cars)! :)

    Amateur/Ham Radio: I studied and got my "ham" license in '93, at the age of 16. I had a friend who had his license and was intrigued by the fact that he could communicate all over the world with a piece of equipment the size of a 12 pack. I haven't been so much into it lately, as I've mostly been too busy, but it's a neat hobby to fall back on on a rainy day. My username is my radio "callsign". November-zero-yankee-xray-lima spelled phonetically.

    Ian, 19

    I'm a student at Northeastern University studying computer science, now learning Java which got me to thinking how slick it would be to develop apps for my Droid. This phone has become an obsession for me, UD is unreal and I can't wait till I up my skills a bit. Other than that, I love soccer and the beach :icon_ banana:

    Been a geek for a long time. That's why in 1983 I became a "Ham" Radio Operator myself. I can copy morse code to about 25 WPM. You'll hear me on the morse code or the digital modes during the fall and winter months. I enjoy contesting especially. Since 2004, I've confirmed 111 countries and have actually worked 141 countries, all continents including Arctica and Antarctica. Been interested in cell phones since 1992 when I got my first bag phone and the big question is "why do you need mobile communications". I even spent 2-1/2 years working for Verizon Wireless in a call center, so I know VZW and have a lot of contacts still there. Other hobbies include riding my 2008 Kawasaki Vulcan 1600 motorcycle. Went on a 200 mile ride on Sunday with it.

    I have a daughter who is getting married in May, a 16 yr. old son and my wife (v. 2.0) who I married in 1998.

    Name: Spenser

    Age: 23

    Occupation: Accounting - Graduated high school by the skin of my teeth due to lack of interest. After 4 years at the states largest beer and wine distributor I have worked my way up from shipping and receiving. I stepped up to an entry level accounts receivable position and have since moved to a solid accounts payable position as well as doing all of our banners/posters for the market. I just got a promotion that is getting me out of the graphics arena and dipping into the IT side of things... very excited about that.

    Hobbies/Interests: I have always had a love for cars, computers, photography, punk music, hardcore, garage rock... well music in general I would say. I just got rid of my 2001 Audi TT 225 Quattro that was decently modified. It should help me set aside some money and build my savings.

    Here is a taste of my old car and photography hobby.

    Hi my name is Bob and I live in the central part of Washington State. I am a retired police officer and am turning 56 this year. I have been interested in computers for as long as I can remember. My first computer didn't have a hard drive. You typed in the program and then saved it to a cassette tape. It actually worked about a quarter of the time. I currently install home theater systems and home automation very part time. I also work for a general contractor building houses.
