Hello.  Introductory post from Byff.  I'm a newb here, although I've been active in online forums for a couple decades now (particularly the MaximumPC Commport and assorted other Prospero-based sites).


I've built a couple dozen computers over the years, and currently operate 15 on a Windows AD network (one or two of which have older Linux builds that I've experimented with as firewalls and the like).  The only name-brand, off-the-shelf machines I have are two laptops, one several years old (an HP G62 with heat issues, for which I'm posting a help question in the Hardware section), and a newer refurb ProBook which I've barely unboxed at this point.  


I don't do any real exotic gaming, just the occasional FPS (I'm still somewhat into the DOOM series) and some Diablo II, plus some legacy stuff I pull out from time to time for old time's sake.  I develop Web sites and apps using Microsoft .NET technologies (using SQL Server and MySQL), and tinker with robotics using Arduino and Parallax IDEs.  And I blog, writing the odd article and story, using a handful of different tools to create images for my sites.  


While I enjoy writing software, I'm not nearly as steeped in current technologies as I could be, so I could always use some advice on what to get into to stay current, as well as to keep on top of best practices.


I look forward to helping out as well as being helped, as the case may be.  Cheers.
