Hello, Friends!
« on: November 23, 2021, 05:57:26 PM »
Greetings Landzdowners...

I'm new here.... sort of. Even though I have never signed in here before, I have followed many items on this forum in the past. The time has come, though, for me to come out of the shadows...

My name is V. T. Eric Layton. I'm a refugee, one of a few who will probably be popping up here soon, from Scot's Newsletter Forums. I am an Admin there, for the time being. 

I'm not too techie or interested in computers and computering as much as I was in times past. I've gotten old. Nowadays, I'm just happy that the soul-sucking box here on my desk actually came on when I pressed that button in front.

My actual career field in my younger days was electronics service (component level) on RF Communications and Audio equipment (commercial and consumer). As many of you may know, that career field went the way of the Dodo quite a few years ago. These days, I'm semi-retired (sans income).

You'll find this out eventually, but I'm not a big fan of MS Windows. I'll try to be nice. ;) I've run Slackware Linux for nearly 20 years now, so if anyone has any Linux issues, I may be able to help out a bit.

Anyway, it's nice to be here. Thanks to Corrine for the invitation. I'm going to suggest that other folks from Scot's come this way, too. We're looking for a place where we can still keep in touch on a regular basis. Of course, making new friends will be good, too. :)

Have a great day!

Regards,

~Eric

HAHAHA! Been a really long time since I saw "Newbie" by my name on any forum/board. ;)

Is my sig too big? I believe I'll adjust. Stand by...

There. That should be better. :)

I'll get the hang of it. Fortunately, my own Private Board uses UBBCode, so everything here is relatively familiar to me. :)
