My english is not so well, that's why I hesitated a long time to sign in. I experienced before that people misunderstood me because I maybe did not always use the correct words, so the predicate could be wrong. But I hope ATS will be patient with me

I'm turning 42 in March and live in a small town in the far west of Austria, near Switzerland. Few years ago I recognized the fact - to me it is - that mainstream media is maybe not always telling me the truth. I stopped watching TV since and investigated any alternative info out there, and so I stumbled upon ATS which I still believe to be one of the best sites.

Most of the info is available in english only, it is hard to share with the people around me, most of them hardly can speak or read in english. But I keep trying.

"Habidehre" is my favourite Austrian greeting, it is short for "Ich habe die Ehre" which means "I have the honour".

what's up

You seem interesting and I look forward to seeing what you think about the stuff offered on ATS.

You like ancient civilizations? I ask because it's hard to get a perspective for what discoveries and significance Austria has archeologically. You can always look on the internet but there are always sites and knowledge that is just not documented past local legend.

Yes it is a topic I often looked for. We have several roman excavations here, and the capital of the province "Vorarlberg", Bregenz existed 2000 years ago. It is 15 km from me, it was an old roman port at the Lake Constance (Bodensee) and was called "Brigantium".

Welcome to ATS and it's great to have another addition from that part of the world! Don't worry about your English. It looks fine to me.

I would suggest keeping your location tag the way it is, if the language bothers you though. Just keep Austria in there so everyone knows it's a language challenge and not something more open to nasty replies.

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many rides, so with that said...

Here's a few thoughts before getting onto any one of the 1000's of topical rides at Above Top Secret (ATS), the world's largest Civil & Unique Discussion Community.

* Please check out those links posted above before getting on one of the rides. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

* Please be sure to act like an 'civil' adult and are at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward).

* Please remember that some members are very passionate and vocal depending on what ride your all on. You should be mentally fit, stable and have a strong stomach for theories, conjecture, research and evidence presented that may be contrary to your own.

* Please be "open-minded" enough to understand that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might expect. Be aware you also might end up learning something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride.

* Please note that at times the ride gets overly-heated and "it's strongly suggested" to get off the ride to regroup one's thoughts before continuing. This will also help guarantee that the ride will move forward without getting derailed or explode into a fiery trashbin.

* Please have fun! But be aware that if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, intentially spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is not only for your safety, but also for those both young and old on the ride with you.

So buckle up, keep your arms within the ride's comfort zone, have fun and "Deny Ignorance"...!


And since we have an International membership, I wouldn't worry too much about your English, were a very forgiving group..

Once again WELCOME!

Welcome to ATS, please help me out here, was Habidehre just a greeting?
And your member name is Ruebsal?
My family's origins are from Riga, Switzerland and I'm not exactly sure where in Austria on my fathers side.

Yes it is an Austrian greeting as I explained in my first posting. And yes this is the nickname I use since - I hope you will believe me - 1998. I never heard of Riga in Switzerland, only know the capital of Latvia with that very name. Are you sure about the spelling? The only thing that comes to my mind is a popular mountain in central Switzerland with the name Rigi.

Thanks to everyone for warm welcome and encouraging words. By the way, anyone know why I can't set my time (GMT+1)? Each time I save it is GMT+4 again ... funny. Must have a look through all the help threads.
