I've decided to make an AMA in a blog. If you've followed me on LTT for a while you might have known the blogs space exists as I've made blogs in the past .
I'm going with a very similar format to @Arika S except with some minor differences.
I'll post Questions asked and the answers here.
I will try my best to answer questions that don't reveal too much about my identity although I may not answer some questions if they are too personal. I will be including a list of questions here if I decide I won't answer them.
You can PM me questions, leave a comment below, leave a question on my profile, or send me a message on Discord (I'm AluminiumTech#4980 on Discord) and I'll include it here. I won't be revealing who asked each question.
You can ask as many questions as you'd like.
Basic info about me:
Name: Alastair (That's all you're getting)
Questions and Answers:
Question: how are ya doin?
Answer: I'm doing okay. Thanks for asking.
you've slowed down recently. but there was a time when most of the news subforum was threads created by you. how did you come across so many news stories? do you actively look for them to post here or just stumble into them while just browsing?
Question: What keeps you engaged and interested in information technology?
Answer: For quite a while I've found technology to be really cool although I've not always been super interested in technology. I love to understand how things work and I find new technology really exciting. I also really like to create things and technology enables that.

Answer: A lot of it was myself actively looking for in news stories although some of them were just me stumbling upon something whilst browsing and then making a tech news post. Actively looking isn't a bad idea if you want to make a lot of tech news posts but sometimes you have to decide which posts are worth posting because you don't have time to post all the ones you see and also you need to decide what websites to look at when actively checking and check them every so often. I'd say for people on LTT wanting to post frequently in tech news then a mix of both is a good choice.
Questions I won't answer:
Question: social security and mothers maiden name?
