I have to point out. You all are an entertaining group of people to say the least.
I've been lurking for a couple years but have found myself checking in more and more frequently. Josh-posts are great but I find that I'm mostly showing up now to see what kind of hijinks are going on at that particular moment. I've generally avoided posting on most forums because it's usually all I can do to keep from drooling on myself
, much less contributing anything remotely resembling a coherent thought.
Joking aside, I did want to say thank you to the group as a whole. Many of the people here have posted resources or provided some type of motivation for me to sit down and start learning the dark art of coding. I've just begun teaching myself Python (First language) and while it's different from most of my daily duties, I find great potential and satisfaction in learning this. I hope some of that creeped you all out but I suspect it didn't. I'll have to try harder in the future.
A bit about me -- Professionally I'm an IT Infrastructure Engineer (the fake kind)/Cyber security lead for a government contractor.. I'm basically a glorified sysadmin but I'll take all the glory I can get. When I'm not working, I'm usually in my garage working on one of several ridiculously stupid car projects, fabricating stuff in the machine shop or just general monkeying around with metal toys. I game some but have found myself really waiting for all of what LT promises (such is why we're here, right??). I've been mostly playing some Stellaris [No Silver, I don't play multiplayer], keeping tabs on Starpoint Gemini Warlords and some classic Secret of Monkey Island and Space Quest.
Anyway, really just wanted to pop in here to say thanks and I'll be sticking around.. With all the people threatening to leave, hopefully a couple semi new-ish followers is encouraging.
