As I have hardly posted anything on this site or indeed even visited since mid March, I thought I'd do a little bit of a re-introduction after I've been gone.
I'm sure a lot of you will be thinking "oh, it's you again" but there's probably a few of you also thinking "Who the hell is this guy?"
I joined this site just over two years ago in June 2009, initially posted quite a lot and somehow became a VIP (now 'Distinguished Contributor') by about October - only a few months. I kept that up for a while, but my involvement started to decline after one year and by the time I got to 18 months (last December) it was pretty sporadic, despite reaching 'Top Contributor' at one point.
While I was here, I gathered a bit of a reputation for being famously neutral; often taking both sides of the argument equally and not coming to a decision one way or another - a fact Talula poked a bit of fun at, at some point in time. However I don't do that all the time, I'm quite strongly one-sided on some things and not afraid to voice my opinion, even if it's far removed from the norm.
I'm quite a friendly character and I try to dispense advice where it's asked for. I'm happy to talk to people if they want, but my areas of knowledge linked to any practicalities of *BDL are very limited due to my personal lack of access to any supplies. That said, two years on from joining, I'm now a lot more comfortable with, and understand a lot better this part of me.
As for my interests for the newer members, not really sure what to say. I enjoy singing, reading, photography, sometimes editing said photos and spending a lot of time on the web. If you want to ask anything feel free, or take a look at my original intro thread (but I don't think there's much in there.)
Nice to see you all again, old and new, and I hope to be on here quite regularly as I was before.
p.s. For any oldies complaining my avatar hasn't changed for a year, I'll be on to that soon, and I'll be putting up a reason for my absence in the DC forum.
Oh, one last thing, if anything notable has happened while I've been away, please mention it.
