I'm Dan. I go by ERMAHDERD in gaming circles these days, because it makes me laugh. And because ERMAHDERD (I'm a dad in ERMAHGERD speech - it makes me laugh). I'm expecting my 2nd child almost any time now and I love nothing so much as I love being a father. I've messed with computers since I can remember. My first was an Apple IIc. I played Maniac Mansion and other greats on 5.25" floppies and loved it. I fell in loved with Heroes of Might & Magic games (HOMM) and Warcraft, then Starcraft, then others. I met my wife through Soldiers of Fortune II: Double Helix on *O.B.C* servers (just in case, for fun, anybody knows anything about this). My life is firmly rooted to PC's with all this. I built my first in 2006 and have built and supported dozens more. Even so, I'm still an amateur. I have learned some tricks, but I'm no pro.
I'm grateful to the site - I've been a lurker here for years, helping friends and colleagues with what I've found here. Donated to the 'defense fund' personally and professionally because I believe in what this place does for the community.
That's me. I try to be happy, try to laugh. Glad to make your acquaintance.
