Hi All

use the handle WW on many site re computer and Motorcycle related, even a few that at not related to comps or motorcycles.

any way found my way here as a result of being nosey on http://www.motorbike-search-engine.co.u ... efault.asp as Dafoxx is a member there has a link to this site and as I am a retired CEO of a small computer company in NZ, I had an interest in any tech things so joined up.

I noticed this
=Egaladeist

Accounts that are more than 6 months old who have never posted are actively deleted.

If you are a lurker, have never posted, and your account is more than 6 months old, please notify us in this thread that you are lurking...or your account may be inadvertently deleted.

So forearmed, :oops: I tend to be a lurker more than a poster in tech sites, mainly trying to keep up to date and see how things have change in the last three years :wink: . So please do not delete my account unless I have beeen e-mailed first, it may just be a case of posting a bump to let you know I still visit :oops:

Thanks for the notice.

We'd rather you did post though. We're not that weird.

Welcome WW :D

No real need to worry about getting your account deleted...that was a suggestion of mine to keep the membership down to ' actual posters '...giving members a 6 month grace period to get that post in...lurkers who never post don't really get any extra advantage/access by registering anyways...but...for the most part the idea got squashed by the membership...

we do actively trim the membership ( eg. you are the 4538th person to register but we have only 2516 listed members )...so...2022 members have been deleted...but there's no hard n' fast rules regarding member deletions, it's still more-or-less left to judgment calls.

Hi WW, a fellow rider!

Welcome to our home..

Be sure to take a look at TBZ (The Biker Zone) - http://www.thebikerzone.net - it's our motorcycle site that we are getting off the ground.. Setup as a blog now, got some pics and other content, but you can expect more will be coming from this site in the future..

A new lurker, eh? Does this mean I have to break out the night-vision binoculars and look for you while you creep around my house like a spec-ops going covert style?

Good to see you here, another bike rider! (I don't ride but I know Maverick is the crazy one with the bike)
