Howdy :)

I've been watching LTT for a couple years on and off now, and I've been pretty big into PCs for a couple years now. 

So, my name is Riley, and I ended up moving (almost) 2 year ago, but it wasn't until now that I actually felt the need to start socializing more :P Most of my friends aren't (as big) into computer stuff, and the few that are, aren't usually available to talk to. 

I really like to chat about things like that, so I figured I'd join the most straightforward forum! 

 

So here I am, ready to overshare everything and completely waste my time :D

Hi everyone

Thanks so much for joining. My vision is a community based on positive member interaction and helping each other. I believe that if we all work together toward this goal, we will have success in the long run.

We don't have official forum rules or anything like that yet, but as long as everyone is respectful of each other, and patient with the growing pains that we are going to experience (vBulletin 5 is VERY beta right now) we can make this into an AWESOME community forum.

Linus

Yay. Finally a place for meeee

Hi Linus I'm a big fan. I quote you in conversation and a few years ago I emailed the sales team thinking it was you and it was the biggest cringe of my life I feal bad if your wife nick lite or Colton ever found it.

Who doesn’t love to follow a trend? I’ll introduce myself as well.

 

I’ve been following LTT on YouTube for quite some time now, probably around 2 years and have always been interested in their content. It only came to me recently that I should probably end up creating an account on the forums and become more joined into the community! Used to be part of a few forums before and really missed the atmosphere of them, really hope I can get into this form.

 

@LinusTech feel like the beginning post is a little outdated now? Not using vBulletin anymore and I think this is the actual official forms :)  - thought could be worth a little update if you get a spare moment

Hello.

 

I've been watching LTT (and others) for about 2 years now.

 

While I plan out my new build, I figured it would be worthwhile to sign up here.

 

Cheers!

Is this where I go to introduce myself? I'm a broke poor boy who likes looking at computers I'll never afford, so discovering the LTT YT channel a few weeks ago was cool. Previously, most computer channels I followed were retro focused, like LGR and the 8-Bit Guy. Now I've seen some of the other end of the timeline.

I also like music, video games, literature, and math, to name a few.

Hi hello!

 

IT company owner here, love your philosophy, been building PCs for... wow, 16 years now... so more than half my life...

 

Just got hooked on LTT because the RGB gaming rig from the middle of 2017 is almost exactly the machine that I built last April, and from there it's just been downhill all week and now I've watched about 50 of your videos...

Seems this thread converted into a "Hello, I am the new guy" one ... so I will introduce myself here.

I work (/play around) with computers for ages, after* a Cosmos2000 (more a toy than a computer), C3-+4, C64 and a Amiga500 (bought used) my first PC was 386SX, while my latest is a Z-Box (bought last year, which was in my region available only as either a 1060 with a 5th gen I7, or a 1070 with I5, I decided for the I5) which I upgraded, with a hard beating heart (voided warranty in process since sticker did not survive ...despite making an effort to salvage it) since I never touched this kind of socket and therefore hadn't the plastic piece to align the CPU ... also never touched this kind of cooler either ... so I legitimately feared the whole time I ruin my brand new computer, to a 6th gen I7 (like the one which was in there it was a U something ... sorry, the numbers in the naming scheme confuse me ... and I can't remember them either).

 

Anyway here I am. A guy with some computer knowledge and much from that is outdated or forgotten over time.

Among the people I know I am treated as "the expert", since I am the one who knows so much more about any related topic that I am looking like Einstein to cave man. Little do they know that I am merely faking the expert. Though I let them know (most of the time anyway) that what they don't know fills whole libraries. And I am pretty sure if I don't know something I know where to look. Good thing that I am still picking up new stuff fast.

 

I also worked in IT for a while. Repaired machines (when they had hard or software issues ... unlike others in the region I also made an effort to restore the data on that machines), made websites, maintained a few of them, was admin (and tech guy ... and wrote invoices) for a tiny company. Among a few other things.

 

I usually meanwhile hesitate to sign up for anything, since the accounts I lost over time range in the hundreds. But I did watch LTT on YT for a while now (also gave me the idea for buying the Z-Box).

 

I came here for all they guys who are here and have so much more talent and knowledge in computer stuff than I do.

Hello there! Mostly just looking for another place to hang my hat and, well... As much as I like Lunduke and have a fondness for retro? I'm not going to get putty and going to a ye olden text bbs. Might stay might not I dunno.  However that said? Here seems like as good a place as any
