Default Adios from the peninsula

Hi,

My name is George, known as 'Geo' among friends. I have been interested in technology every since I left school into a polytechnic. Automobiles fancied me and at one point of time all I wanted to do was setup a garage. Those were better days and my daily bread is earned by working in the area of computer networks. I follow Formula-1 closely and managed to catch up most of the WRC rallys. In our town there one leg of the Asia Pacific Rally which is a must see.

I went through a lot of posts here and truly would cherish this association, there were articles that were information and helpful and there's a lot of discipline enformed which is not the case in many online forums. I look forward to lots of information exchange.

George HJ

Hi George,

Welcome to the Team-BHP! I think most of us BHPians want (as in my case) or wanted to set up a garage at one stage of our lives.

Thats one of the best compliments we have received so far...

Default Why the Goodbye?

Hola Señor George,

Welcome aboard and enjoy the stay.

Why the goodbye (Adiós is Spanish for Goodbye) ?

Cheers

Hi,
It's truly been a pleasant experience being welcomed by so many people.

revtech - I am into Networking and Windows Server, primarly web servers and all related to that sphere. I started in a Maruti Omni in 96, used a Maruti 800 till about a week ago and am currently using a TATA Indigo GLX. Parallely I have used a Suzuki Shogun 94 - 99 and a Shoalin after that till date.

GTO - I meant it in all honesty, sadly there's been a serious typo in the message. The word 'enformed' should read as 'enforced'.

XSailor - I happen to use goodbye at the end of each day and I guess it just slipped into the post too, don't read too much into it. I am here to stay.

jkdas - Of the jungle, rightly said. Jane at the moment is on her way to work!
Steeriod - Surely doesn't mean that in and out in a jiffy thing, it's a habit I have.
nitrous - Thanks for the Thamizh welcome, nanri.
