Hello all. First of all, I have to thank the creators of 8Dimensional for providing PC Entusiast's with what is the most concise, well organized database on the Web. Anytime I need to reference any hardware, or software information, I click 8thDimensional. It's been on my Toolbar for some time.
So I decided to check into the Forum, and was pleasantly surprised to find a smaller community. It's easier to get to know people, and to avoid the "cliques" which tend to form on the larger Websites.
I first got into PC's in 1990 in college, and then got into High End Tube amps, and Eletrostatic speakers. I began racing mountain bikes and surfing in 1994 and contimued to live in Hawaii, Costa Rica, and California chasing races, and waves. After suffering a severe spinal injury during a MTB race. I have been unable to work (beyond PT) and have been disabled. Being laid up, naturally a PC was a perfect tool for contact, and entertainment for the last couple years. I've just recently got into Overclocking, and even thought of designing a tube based Audio card. In fact I talked about it around 4 months ago to someone I know at OCZ, as the owner of that company also has Tube Amp experience. then AOpen releases a tube audio section Motherboard. I should have patented that idea! So hello all!
