An hour in the Chat Room both in the morning and again at night sets me into a mood that I can actually associate with people I don't like for the whole day!
Yes, there's a lot of tech stuff that goes on...but as a general rule it's just great comradrie!
For those of you who haven't yet tried it...c'mon in...the waters' fine and no one judges you by your ability or inability to type!
Sure, it can get hectic...but just sit on the side and as the Ham Radio Operators say, just 'read the mail' until you get a feel for what's going on.
Those of us who are regulars sense when someone is being 'over, or underwhelmed' and will usually send a PM (Privete Message) to that individual and calm them or try to draw them back into the general conversation.
We can exchange files, or pics and a lot more..but you won't know what a great thing MAK and the guys have done for us unless you drop in and experience it for yourself...first hand.
A word of caution...don't be surprised if you're asked for your first name if your user name is "Supercallifragalisticexpialidocious" because we're real casual and like to know each other on a first name basis...not required...but helpful.
Come one, come all...it's a great experience and y'all are welcome!
