    Hi all..

    Wanted to step out an introduce myself and share a funny story. I have been on a MacBook since December, and enjoy it maybe a bit TOO much. I participate in other forums, generally Audio-Video forums, which shall remain nameless at this point. Their was a moderator who would regualrly post Windows and more recently OSX security flaws and updates, and I made the mistake of listing my uptime and mentioning that the latest update took all of 25 seconds to dowload and install, which was not a big deal in light of all the issues PC's experience. He was not impressed.

    Well, that didnt go over so good, they banned me. Guess I didnt need em anyways. What really chaps my ass is that I was a site sponser, productive, and always helpful to the noob. Audio is hobby I love, but I am a geek at heart. So here I am.

    Thanks
    :apple:

    Mmm, that's a strange thing to be banned for. :( A protracted flamewar about uptime and related issues, yes, I could see, but a single comment seems odd. In any event, welcome to MR. :)

    Hello:)

    I do belive we have an audio section and plenty more:)


    Also you cant get an avatar until you have at least 500 posts, and you cant start a thread in the marketplace or politcs section until you have 100 posts.
    Just to clear up a few things becuase many new people start threads about why they cant *yatayata*


    Have a fun time here:)

    Welcome to the forums, Clarence – might I point you in the direction of the 'Official' New Member Thread for something to occupy you with after you've finished your wrestling session with iGav? :)

    Thanks for the warm welcome.

    WOW a politics section?? That would be heresy at my old hang out. I will check out the threads mentioned, and its great you have an Audio section too. Hopefully its not all Ipods and Idocks... there is so much more to life!:p

    Thanks again, cant wrestle now, I'm at work.

    No don't worry. It's a serious Digital Audio sub forum.


    We have a separate sub forum for those silly iPods :D

    Amazing. However, excuse me if I find that a bit hard to believe and think you were probably a fairly typical Apple zealot who argued it ad infinitum :p

    Anyway, welcome! :D

    You seem to be begging for a wrestle with anyone iGav, have you got some frustrations you're trying to get rid of?

    Can you think of a more suitable way to greet newcomers? or to decide who gets to eat the last cupcake in the fridge?

    True, would it be ancient Greek style wrestling?

    But then, you find out I took the cupcake while everyone was busy wrestling, and peeing on the new guy.
