Hello all,
My name is Matt and this is my first post. I have been an occassional lurker here at ATS for a few years, but I finally decided to join so I can add my two cents and some of my experiences to the discussions.

I am retired from the Air Force (aircraft maintenance) and am currently living in the state of Washington, USA. My hobbies and interests are anything tech-related, but if I had to narrow it down, it would be computers, camera gear (but not necessarily photography), and most recently, trying to learn diy electronics/circuits and the associated programming/software that goes along with it.

I look forward to talking with you in the forums!

Welcome aboard mate!

Yes, I am an Aussie.

If you would like one of these wonderful Avatars, you click Here and some really nice people will design one for you. Just give them an idea of what you would like.

Best of all, it is free and they enjoy making them.

Welcome to the madhouse! I know the first step is a doozy, but hardly anyone notices the rabbit-hole before its too late. Be careful, you might enjoy your stay and not want to leave ;-)

Hello genericHandle, welcome to your new conspiracy abode. Usually one of the nice mods will visit your intro thread and throw a bunch of nice links at you... but it's been 2 days and you haven't been visited yet.

Here is the main page for Board Business & Questions. As you can see there are lot's of sticky threads at the top. Most of those are general resource threads, FAQs, and basic help for new users (linking, embedding, etc).

There is also a user messaging sub-system for private messages to other ATS users.
There is also a user upload space which you can upload your avatars or images.

Oh, and don't forget the Terms & Conditions! You should learn the T&C! Don't learn the hard way like I did! Basically, you will do very well on ATS if you just remember to be cordial, to be fair and no personal attacks.

Content is king here on ATS and there are forums here designed especially for your craziest conspiracy ideas.. first is the Skunkworks

and the other is the Gray Area

That about sums it up. We all welcome you to ATS and hope that you find what it is that you are looking for
