Well, I am into computers, however not enough to know enough (and probably never will be)! I would most likely be the one type of person whom most within these boards to be least liked. Due to my lack of 'real' computing knowledge, I do have my (VERY knowledgeable) buddy build my HTPC's for me as I trust him with my money and his experience as well as knowledge. With that said, I do learn everything as he builds and I purchase LOL. I do have mainly one purpose for this little RPi baby, and that is to make a nice simple HTPC out of this little work of genius. Prior to this beauty being released, I have learned quite a bit through the forums and research about ARM, as well as Linux (which I have never needed to know before hearing about RPi). It certainly is great to get out of the 'norm' from dealing with windows after so many years. I STILL have not even dealt with Apple, although I never really needed to thus far within my lifetime from phones, tablets, notebooks, etc (blah blah "I" blah).
So… I doubt I'll able to contribute anything valuable within these boards, nor the basis on what this wonderful contraption is attempting to achieve for the public, as well as education. All great causes, and I hope for the best! Only thing I believe I'll be able to 'help' modify would be the casing, as I have quite a bit of colored acrylic sheets (leftovers from a company I used to own) that I plan on using to build my own custom box's. I suppose you could say I am more of an aesthetics type of person. However, aesthetics are useless if the performance does not uphold the duties expected.
Oh, BTW… Don't mind the stupid user name. Google all you want. You mostly may find either dating sights, or OverClockers and the like LOL. Was a stupid name given when life was 'good'. Though times may be hard in the world today as we try to continue to keep our houses, cars, and still purchase a $35.00 piece of equipment not knowing how it may turn out in the end, but glad it may help others, and perhaps teach ourselves as we tinker with it.
Thanks for reading, and great to meet you all!
