#532376 Hello Fellow Flames,

After about 2 years of hanging out in the shadows and following the site I've finally figured out how to join the forum (Thanks to my apparent lack of computer literacy and some help from Jon)!

A little about me- this coming fall will mark 10 years since I moved to the mountain, originally as a student. I guess I liked it so much I decided to stay. I now work for LU, as does my wife, and we have no plans to leave anytime soon.

I've long enjoyed the commentary, opinions, banter, and sarcasm and now look forward to contributing myself.

#532379 Welcome to the forum!

Since you are an employee you must be careful not to be TOO opinionated :)

#532380 Just make sure your opinions are positive. :speakhearsee

Well, unless you have opinions about the nachos, because we want you to be honest about food.

Figures a Marshall guy would want only positive comments. Bunch of repressive Commies.
Post what you want and enjoy yourself!
(And any help on the nachos is appreciated)

No. If it was hard to tell, I offer little in the way of creativity. In fact, I had forgotten I created an account with that username until Jon helped me get it sorted out this morning. Im pretty sure it was one of those suggested usernames since the original choice was taken or something

Close. Graduated in '12 and '16. Honestly can't remember what the numbers were for. Apparently the account was created in 2015 and I never figured out how to activate it.
