    I'm Si, and I'm here waaaay too late. It's 2018, and this splendid Android world has been happily spinning for yonks. I salute you fine folk who have trodden this path before me.

    I'm from the UK, but seek humble refuge in the Canary Islands - the little-known island of La Palma, if anyone has ever heard of it? No. I thought not. And my good lady (who is so much better at tech than me) lives in Madeira where I spend a bit of the year, too.

    Greatest tech hero moment: working near the people who built the fore-runner to the 3G network. Four humble geniuses working infeasible miracles in a pokey basement office.

    Worst tech failure moment: that none of their brilliance rubbed off on me.

    I believe in good reciprocity and intend to help here more than I hinder

    Si

    Haha. UK, La Palma And Madeira, nice mix. Kind of similar here I'll be flying over La Palma tomorrow, on my way back to Brazil from Lisbon.

    No! It's not possible... you DO know little La Palma. Fantastic. Please wave to my beautiful, spiritual home as you pass over and salute my newfound love close by: Madeira. I bow to your uplifting geography too and knowingly nod to Lisbon and the great country of Brazil.

    Cheers, Stargate. I have a second hand old Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and this Acer R11 Chromebook - which brings me here - for everything else. Apart from (not strictly Android) a Raspberry Pi 1,2 and a 3, which each run in various places as media centres for my TV and Film desires. I presume I might be considered a boring minimalist by some here?

    Thanks for the warm introduction @TraderGary. And by warm I am obviously saying nothing about Atlanta temperatures this time of year.

    Welcome to the AC Forums! Working alongside tech gods can be awesome (one of my teachers worked alongside Gonzalez-Camarena in creating the color TV system, although uncredited). Anyway, welcome to the Forums and we're all here to help! Have fun!

    Cheers, SpookDroid. Yes, I was shown the clarity of how much I really didn't know. Could never get my head around or know, even. True perspective. And so much respect to them. Always chasing new knowledge and pushing their minds and engineering capabilities. I remember wandering into their office and one of 'em saying they'd just read a theory on how to get more data down a twisted copper pair (basic landline.) His workmate said that that couldn't be right. Strolled over, took a look at the paper on screen for a few short minutes and added, I think he's right. That's brilliant.

    And that became ADSL.

    On the shoulders of giants go we. Your teacher one.

    Welcome aboard! Active members are especially welcome and I see you’ve already started posting.

    I’m also from the UK where, at the moment, I can report, it’s overcast from horizon to horizon, this June day, and is, perhaps, not entirely warm.

    'Ello belodlon, and yeah, soz about all the posting. Got a bit carried away there. I am currently looking at grey skies too, as I am observing from my current location looking across to Gatwick Airport. At least I can see the planes coming in. Chilly when I put the rubbish out, too. Us Brits never talk about the weather. Ta for the welcome.

    Yes, belodlon, I know. My attempts at humour are often wayward. I should have written my 'soz' in 12pt Sarcastica. Good on ya, though. In fact, I've added you as a Contact on here, if that's OK?
