Peta, ofcourse some advertising would always be helpful to making this a success.... This forum has existed since October 6th 2003, online the first time at about 9:00PM CST. Being a couple days old, atleast there's traffic...

I don't know if this forum will be a huge success or not, I created it out of requests from viewers, so we'll see how many actually join... If it takes off, I'll be tickled pink!! If it flops, I'll simply remove it.

A little about me?!?

HMMM I'll give a little info... I've been in the electronics field since 1991, with experience ranging from TV/VCR repair all the way to industrial electronics for a very large and well known manufacturer. I started in computers in 1994, just for a change and something I thought would be more challenging.... First of all, in the computer field, I AM NOT a number cruncher (programmer) YUK!!!!! I'm a hardware/network guy... I can install any OS, repair and make it work, but sitting and typing code is more boring than watching flies mate!! So I stick to hardware!! I get the 'thrill' from coming up with cures for problems, creative and USEFUL mods (this DOES NOT include neon lights and corny batman windows in my cases)...

Before the VP6 was around, Abit's poster child was the BP6, dual celeron board... Being one of the pioneers to run dual Coppermines in my BP6 was quite a thrill... Then came the VP6, and the dreaded crap cap problem... Thus was born PROJECT:VP6, which is over a year old... It can be viewed at www.kabalsrealm.com/systems/projects/vp6/. That single article ultimately led to badcaps.net and this forum... I was shocked at the publicity it drew...

A little inside info?!?
Well, age?! I'll say late 20's and that's close enough... I enjoy dealing with the computers, all of this is just a hobby these days, so if it did flop, it's no loss... I'm also a car nut... (300ZX!!!)... I also enjoy flying immencely, although, no I don't own an airplane... YET!!! Maybe if I sell off all this computer junk, I could afford one... HEH I own 3 domain names, and host sites for a few friends on this array... Of course they pay me nothing... HMMM Ohh well... Money isn't all... That's about all I think needs to be revealed... If there's something you really need to know about me, ask... The answer all depends on the question you asked...

Anyhow,
Peta, and everyone else that has joined, Welcome to the forums!! Bring some friends with ya!! :roll:

Hi all,
i'm Jonathan , i come from Toulouse in France and work in a repair center for mobile phone, computers...
I couldn't write long description because english language is not native for me and i don't want to use translator (i think it's better to do mistakes and understand for next time instead use it) so i'll just describe myself quickly :
I am a big tattoed bear beginner in electronics but I love to learn and understand.
I hope to find my place here and,why not, help some people if possible!
Thank you for your welcoming.
Jonathan

Hi Everyone

I'm Emidio from Australia, really happy to find this community of electronic enthusiasts. I have been a Systems Engineer for over 30 years and have always been the type to pull things apart to see how they work.

My first computer was a C64 and then progressed from there at the moment I spend my days providing IT support but still try and keep my finger on the pulse with board repairs.

Thanks for letting me join

Hello.

I found this place while looking for information on my Sceptre X505BV-FMDR which one day went from working perfectly to no sound, no picture (though blue LED does change from orange to blue when tv is turned on).
