    It's high time I said hi. about me:
    I joined tpu to get some pointers on case modding. I am a structural mechanic, so case modding is fun and challenging. My first case project is still in the works, albiet version 2, a HTPC. I got hold of some freebie PA amps that were working, but decided to shell them for cases. like I say, its still in the works.

    I live in virginia, just got married, love to work on anything with at least two wheels, but no more than three. Direct current makes wiring soooo easy, on bikes and computers. The US Navy employed me for four years as a aviation structural mechanic. I worked on a ship fixing helicopters. now I weld for alcoa. I have som great ideas, and constantly read up to find out if they can work or if they'll just catch something on fire! Forgive me if it seems like i'm trolling, just trying to figure it out....

    Welcome to TPU. Congratulations on your marriage.
    Don't forget to take a little time off from case modding to keep the little lady happy ;)

    Well this is a great place to ask people about software and hardware tools and where to get them, so jump right in. Just post in the appropriate forum and you will usually get an answer in minutes, not days like some forums.

    I'm Ozz.
    When I get bored I spam the place up alot, I also post things that are border line troll. For some reason I never get in trouble for it though.

    Hello, and welcome to TPU! I'm jealous of your past/current work, all I do is pack shit 8 hours a day :laugh:

    Everything Candle said about himself is pretty much true, and he also seems to enjoy arguing :p When I'm bored, I usually come here and hang around in general nonsense. I check the buy/sell and hotdeals too, and sometimes the case-modding and electronics and project logs. You'll definitely see me a lot more in the GN area though :)
