Good evening all...

So, today - Saturday 30th April 2005 - I forked out some cash to buy myself GDNet+ priveleges. I've been meaning to sort it out for a few months now, but I finally realised that I needed some webspace... [smile]

Anyway, I thought I'd start of this journal with a bit of information about me. I won't take it personally if you're not interested...

evolutional was clear on the outset: "you'd better write a good journal...or someone is first in line for a ban ;)". I think he was joking, but best not take any chances [oh]... with that in mind, I'll see about following up this entry with some more interesting stuff [smile]

So, about me (me! me! me!)...
I've been programming for about 7yrs now, of which I've spent 5 years, 1 month and 14 days as a member of this fine website. There was a thread in the lounge some time ago about the older/oldest members, and apart from the staff I think my 5yrs of service puts me at the old, wise and enlightened end of the scale.

I spend a large amount of time in the forums - if you've been in/around the DirectX forum you're likely to have come across me. My posting frequency is directly related to how bored I am at work [wink]

I also used to write a lot of articles of various websites, including several here (and one in the review process as I type). Until it died, I was the webmaster/author of DirectX 4 VB (now kindly archived by Eric Coleman of VBGamer.com)...

By day I'm a placement student working as a Software Engineer for International Business Machines, but I have to leave at the end of July and go back to University in Nottingham [sad].

I'm sure I could say a lot more, but I'll leave that for some later entries. For now I'm going to get on with exploring these new GDNet+ features...

I fixed that journal template editing description problem btw. Thanks.

My pleasure - I could almost call this place my third home [smile]

Great! Looked to me like someone made a common copy-n-paste error [wink]

Just give Evo a tin of beans with "Open other end" printed on both ends. He'll never bother you again.

Welcome aboard!

Welcome [smile] - A lot of people will be reading this, so keep it choked full of interesting stuff.

On a sidenote, I never noticed that you've been here since 2000. You didn't post often then? (Or I didn't visit often, then. I don't really remember [smile])

I did spend a long time on other things (mostly when I was concentrating on the DirectX 4 VB website) so didn't post very much in the forums - I also wasn't too good with C/C++ until a few years ago, which meant I couldn't really contribute much to the threads here [sad]

Up until last week my "posts per day" was less than 1.0 - which is blatantly wrong given the last 6 months or so [wink]

Having had a look at my "archive" on my machine here, I think I've got copies of various GDNet articles from years and years back - I spent a lot of time reading them and trying to learn new stuff...

Simple, open both ends.

Thats just... clever... [oh]
