Glad to be here. Am interested in improving my knowledge
=petabyte;27]As this is a brand new forum, I thought I'd open up a thread to encourage new members to introduce themselves a bit.. now hey.. let's not get too personal.. ok ?

And if you wouldn't mind to keep this thread "clean" let's try to keep the the chitchat (i.e. even the welcome to the board replies) to a minimum or this thread may get to 100 pages fast

So I'll start things off :

My name is petabyte and I'm a forum junkie. :oops: I've been off the wagon for a number of years and countless times I've tried to stop but it's useless.. I need to feed my learning addiction.. :!:

Now just a bit about me.. I'm a fairly secretive guy in terms of privacy on the net.. especially when the things you write are visable to anyone with a net connection. But I love to share the info and knowledge I have, so that's why I'm here, to share and learn.

my formal education is that of an electronic engineer and I held a field service position with a firm for over 20 years.. that job is gone now along with company car and laptop <cry> oh well..
So needless to say (but i will) I've always tinkered with things.. yes, a hacker.. (too bad that term lost it's orignal meaning) a hardware hacker mostly.. hacking fixes in whatever I find that breaks.. (except for cars, I have friends for that) I got started a little late into the computers, my first box was an ibm pc-xt with a whopping 10meg HD,blazing fast 4.66mhz 8086 processor, 640k mem running dos 3.3.. man was I cool back then.. :roll: nevermind..

so these days, I'm forced to be a software guy as well.. as I fix pc's for friends and that usually means cleaning virus/trojan/adware and reinstalling OS's.. yeah hardware breaks but not that often :cry: so as a result, I keep up on my software knowledge by visting a few security forums.. and trolling around a few hardware forums as well.

now I found this place from a thread at motherboards.org/forums
where I've been hanging out lately.. it's a nice friendly place with some pretty smart people.. mostly, of course, it's about mobo's.. So this person mentioned badcaps.net and I recalled reading articles a year or so ago about the faulty caps and was curious as to what you guys were up to.. and I said "w00t.. they have a forum"..

and so now.. you're stuck with me :P

so what's your story ? come on.. give it up.. [/QUOTE]

Hi,
My name is szogun i live in Poland and i`m electronic amateur.
I`ve been lurking this forum for a quite long time, and IMHO it`s one of the best source of knowledge in whole internet.
There no particular type of equipment in which i`d like to specialize, i like to make things work again as they were designed, and give them second life.
I`m against buying new things without need, or replacing them only because they are unfashionable.

Thanku, and see you on board

Hi my name is Kyle, I am from South Africa.

I've been working in I.T for over 7 years but I decided to start my own repair business in electronics as its so much more satisfying, I still have lots to learn in this trade and that's why I am here.

Hi I'm new to the forum posting thing usually I'm just reading them trying to learn as much as possible pertaining to whatever subject it is that I'm at that moment in time trying to fix something in. Electronics from computers to repairing car audio amplifiers. I have a craving to learn new things because I hate not being able to fix something I have when it stops working or finding something cheap that needs fixing and would normally cost an arm and a leg. Anyways I love cars to computers just about anything interesting enough for me to feel like learning to fix it.

Post Re: New Members - please post your introductions here

Hi, my name is Frank. I´m from Mexico.
I learned some electronics from my dad 22 years ago. Back then I was a kid and didn't take electronics very seriously. The technology we fixed was THT (Through Hole Technology), linear power supplies, CRT televisions and the like.
I've always been interested in how hardware and software work. I spent about 2 years helping my dad, then I went to high school and got away from electronics.
Two years ago I started learning the "new electronics" (you know SMT, SMPS .. How to interpret the schematics)

I hop you guys are patient with me

PS: Sorry for my English, I'm still improving it.

Hi, I came by this forum while trying to find out why high-pitched noises are coming from a 13 years old Philips 42pfl5603d LCD TV and that if I can find a DIY solution.
