    Doe some of y\'all live at your computers or what??!!

    I've been using this site for around to two years (a little exageration) and I've got less than a hundred posts. I've seen some people who've only been registered 6 months and have 200. Some of you guys have over 3000!!!! Where do y'all get the time!!!!

    I've been on here for 3 months. I have 464 posts. 465 with this one. I just check the boards between classes and after practices. On weekends I check the boards fairly often, because I don't have a vehicle here at college beside my feet, so I'm here most of the time. Also I am eager to learn, so I ask alot of questions, and help anyone I can.

    My Chevy isn't broken, its just out of gas.

    Yeah.. If my computer would cooperate more often I'd probably have more post too. Lord knows Ive had my share of problems with my trucks.

    I just started here, but I enjoy being helped by skilled individuals that know what they are talking about and doing what I can in return. Pretty friendly site and it's all about K5's, what's not to like?

    Tommy,

    I do a lot of *run out to the truck, try to do something, get confused* *run into the house, post a question* *run out to the truck and wait for answer while pondering my confusion* *run back in, read answers* *run back out, try solutions* *run back in, post another question*

    Hence, the posts build up really fast for me [​IMG]

    I'm with SkiGirl......There are times when I'm stuck in the middle of a procedure.....I post a message, and get the solution ALMOST in "real time".....usually just a few minutes later.....long enough for me to relax and calm down a bit.

    It's really a cool feeling to have THIS many people wanting to help you succeed on your K5!

    I have a few post under my belt and have been around on the boards for a while... even was checking out the original board as a lurker waayyyy back! But a lot of people are in IT or have comps at work. I check usually once during the day between classes and then again after I get home from the shop. Winter is here and I'm a clod wus so I spend a lot of time staying out of the cold LOL

    Some of us are trapped in the matrix
    we don't have cool sounding jobs like " Jet Engine Technician" We sit in offices with no windows and use the computer as our window on the world (couse we should be working). My job is listed as "repair tech" I sit on my butt all day waiting for people with broken Cell phones to show up and then I fix them. Or I fine the phone is smarter than the user and I adjust the customer. Today I actully had fun. We had our Race car at the store ( the 01 Cingular wireless Winston car) So I hung out with the guy that works for SABCO that brought it out and talked racing, cars and 4x4's and took pictures today.

    I do spend a lot of my day here...and i have racked up a couple of posts. I work second shift and stay at home with our baby girl during the day and work nights. I alterante between chasing after her, posting, cleaning up after her, posting...you get the idea.

    If I see someone needs a little info and I think I might be able to help Ido my best to help...[​IMG] I like to think I make a difference now and then as I've recieved a lot of help too.[​IMG]

    Way back when I first found CK5 on my Commodore 64 ..JK.. but it seems that long ago I used to ,post, post, post, post[​IMG]....then I discovered I could learn more by reading, and help ,more folks by posting about what I knew and being quiet the rest of the time[​IMG], besides it helps with the broadband space that way also, I'm on this site twice a day read most of the forums, and VOTE each time for the only K5 site I read and post on any more.

    Since I discovered this place, I probably check it at least once a day. I've learned a ton, plus, I feel like I've made a couple thousand new friends that have the same interests as me and want to talk about them as much as I do. Most of my friends here in the real world aren't ate up with 4x4's like myself, so you guys are the ones I have to go to for this stuff. The funny part is that my wife and I know some people who've left their spouses for someone they met on the net, so one time I was sitting here replying to a post and she started looking over my shoulder and asked who I had so much to say to. Had her worried, I guess. Like I'm really gonna leave her for some Canadian with a rustier truck than mine. LOL

    I literally sit behind a computer all day for work, then go home to sit behind one for my relaxation. I love computers, always have. I feel very fortunate that I get paid to do what I love. I don't have the plethora of posts like Rene and some of the other guys cause I actually go to other sites on the internet =)

    Re: Doe some of y\'all live at your computers or what??!!

    Only 495 posts for me [​IMG]! Anyone here who has over 500 posts is generally a very good source of information. Many of them are lucky enough to spend their day beind a keyboard, and have the time to type too! ME PERSONALLY - I work computers every day. I have 14 at my desk... if it wasn't for that d@mn manager of mine, I might have a few more posts too! [​IMG][​IMG]

    Hats off to the folks like Rene, Wes, etc. that are here all the time helping folks out. Without these guys/gals, my truck and many others would never aspire to become anything like they are now. My mind has been twisted into thinking I have to build the biggest K5 in all of IL! But I love every minute of it!!!

    Re: Doe some of y\'all live at your computers or what??!!

    I go in cycles. Sometimes I'm on all the time, posting and researching. Then I'll go for a while where I wont read or post at all. Then I'll lapse into my current cycle of reading but not posting much. Just depends. I've been fortunate enough to develop the funds to work on the truck more lately too. I love this site, been here since it was on the old board and it didn't come to the top with every new post. That was fun. It's grown a lot, and now I dont recognize a lot of the people. It's awfully difficult to check all the posts anymore, so I just read the high points, or things that I'm working on currently that catches my eye. I love it. Always new innovation and home brew ideas. As for when I get on...usually between classes at the university or late at night when I'm still wide eyed awake and the wife's already gone to bed. [​IMG]
