Greetings, I'm Chris.

I've been meaning to join this site for a long time and finally got around to it, a friend of mine recommended it, and when I was laid off, I suddenly had more free time for personal interest.

I'm a Technology guy, I like building things. Mostly related to security. I do a lot of web work, and have my own rack of servers in colo, just an example of how tech(y) I am. I buy a lot of army surplus items too.

I'm mostly interested in government hacks, coverups, NASA documents and the such. My goal is to get to know the community so that I can understand it enough to contribute in a positive technology related way. Like tools to do this and that.

I live in Washington, where its always wet, the people are moody but the food is pretty good.

Thanks,
-C

Welcome!
I wonder how many people will now think you have servers in Colorado?
You may be part of the IT Illuminati!


Welcome, and let your heart tread lightly. There are many here that don't.

Is "Technology Guy" a clever way of telling us that you are a robot???


We need more robots around here.

I get your point. I'll clarify "colo" = Co Location. I'll try to keep the lingo to a minimum. I may be robotic, but strictly of my own design!

I'm already enjoying the site. It's really addictive. I've got to step back and remember to think twice, cut once.

What are the "Flags"?

Welcome aboard Chris - the site is great there is such a diverse range if topics...

The "flags" are awarded by members for what they thing is a great thread - and you can also stars for individual posts.
The point being the more flags/stars your thread gets - the longer it will appear on the main pages and the more input you will receive.
Have fun - I try to remain courteous but there are times that gets hard - but predominantly the people on here are reasonable and the debates are really enlightening

Hello tech guy! You are a different species in my opinion. I am techno-illiterate. I admire people like you. Anyway, welcome to ATS, hope you have fun.
