Default Hello...

I never know what to say in these things.

I am another refugee from that other place. I was not banned, but I have been in a band [a couple, in fact, but have never played for a crowd larger than 7,000 or so ]. I play bass, keyboards, piano, rhythm guitar, and occasionally do vocals.

I know a thing or two about electronics, computers, programming, embedded controllers, robotics, physics, mathematics, engineering, audio and video recording, radio and television transmitters, satellite uplinks, database design and administration, computer networking, server administration, aeronautics, photography, and a bunch of other things.

I have a 2001 Ford Ranger XLT, with all the bells & whistles... and am usually in the process of adding new bells and/or whistles on an on-going basis.

thanks for the welcome, guys...

nope, the truck's not a 4x4, it just thinks it is!

heh.. that front plate is part of the "authentic" restoration, tho!! ...read the bottom of it - it's a "2001 Seminole Booster" plate (on a 2001 Ranger). ...and, back then, we hadn't started our 8-year slide into obscurity. lol

it's screaming for more mods ... a tailgate mounted antenna bracket, for instance. :ahem:

the brush guard and lights were both local craigslist purchases. the brush guard was listed for $75 and I got it for $50. The KC Daylighters were listed for $50 and I got 'em for $35.
