Well oh dear, bit of a shame losing the past 4 weeks but at least it means I can start again :) Only joined Thursday last week after reading the articles and forums for just over a month.

So Gloucester, that's the Gloucester about 2:30 hours west of London (UK) if any of you were wondering.

So me? I'm 29 soon to hit Three Zero and I'm a computer programmer by day and gamer and husband the rest of the time. It's C#, .NET, SharePoint and web stuff I deal with on a day to day basis, but I do dabble in anything that comes my way including phpBB and wordpress at the moment.

So why did I join? I've been back in PC gaming for just over a year now, I've always had a pretty good rig I just never had the GFX card(s) to play games as I used it mainly for dev, watching films the wife didn't want to and general messing about. So after 10 years away from PC gaming, I ditched the Xbox and got myself a GTX560Ti which soon became 2 :)

After several months of bliss along came a few games I love(d) Far Cry 3, F1 2012 & Hitman Absolution, The two 560s were fine however NVIDIA are slow on the uptake in terms of SLI profiles so I sold them and went for the Gigabyte 7950 windforce 3. Jan 2013 came along and it was time for an upgrade, I usually keep my PC for 3-4 years and although the i7 950, 12GB and mobo were in perfect working order it was time to sell them on while I could get some money for them and get the new kit.

Rig:-
i7 3770K @ 4Ghz
Corsair Dominator 32GB
Asus P8Z77-V LE Plus Intel Z77
Corsair H100i
2 x Gigabyte HD 7950 in crossfire
NXZT Phantom case
OCZ 1200W Powersupply
2x OCZ agility 3 60GB SSDs
2x 1TB HDDs
3x 24" Benq GL2450
G105 Keyboard
R.A.T 3 Mouse
Razer Nostromo
Astro A40s and mixamp (Headset)

Server:
HP Proliant N40L Microserver
8GB RAM
3x 3TB HDD
1x 250GB HDD

Other Stuff:-
Microsoft Surface RT
Nokia Lumia 920

I know the monitors aren't great but with me spending a lot of money from Nov - Now I couldn't really convince the bank to let me have the money (bank = wife)

Looks like my account got deleted and I had to sign up again,

Its most likely as the drupal user still existed after the db issues but phpBB didn't, when i logged in after the restore it recreated my phpBB user.

oh well. This is my hello to you guys btw
