Hello, Members! I am somewhat dense sometimes so please don't flame me if I posted this in the wrong place. I looked at other posts first and the Handbook as well as the Introduction Forum Reminder. After all this, if my density is manifesting towards the Red Zone (on my meter) then my Concerta is not working.

Firstly, my handle Valaroga comes from Tolkien. Another word for Valaroga would be "Balrog". But you knew that

Why I chose that name I do not know.

I have a background in Literature, including Science Fiction, Fiction Science, Anthropology, Computer Science, The Unknown, and foreign languages. This means I alwaze spell good.

This website gives me the motivation to write on various subjects and put some of that college education to work, after chiseling some of the rust off of it. I am inspired by the research and reporting that has been done by some of the members. My college degree is a B.S. in Computer Science, and I have taken many interesting courses which include physics, astronomy, chemistry, navigational and aeronautical science, flight instruction, anthropology, photography, aviation weather, French, and more.

I was also in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1984 - 1986 as a TOW Missile specialist. Our platoon was one of the first to get HUMMERs! Man, I loved mudding! I joined to help honor those marines who died in the Beirut bombing. But I was young.

My hobbies are UNIX (of many flavors), Linux (of many flavors), Chinese/Russian/Welsh languages, Irish and Scottish bagpipes, reading, coin collecting, history, rebuilding computers, and lawn & gardening.

I am 50 years old and married with kids. I love my family, my neighbors, and my country. I am concerned about all our futures.

Although I am not as wise as I should be, I am willing to answer questions and help fellow members as much as I can. Thanks, friends!

Hello Valaroga,

ATS keeps some good company. I moved in a few months ago myself.

Hope I haven't worn out my own welcome though.

Welcome to the fray Valaroga! It sounds to me as if you bring a good mix of ideas, ideals, skills and education to this humble home. I look forward to you input.

You've found one of the best places on the 'net. As I've stumbled upon nearly every error or problem one can encounter here, please feel free to U2U me if there is anything I can do to help out. You'll get your awareness here quickly, I am sure.

Hey welcome to ATS.

One of the most entertaining locations on the web, you'll never really know what somebody will post next. Make yourself at home there is plenty of beer and eats in the frig.

We have a wonderful Search feature to see if something you want to post a new thread about hasn't already been posted. Trust me using it cuts down on getting your post deleted for already being posted. It is also a great way to find and join already going threads in your fields of interests.


Don't touch my Scotch!
