I could basically write out some of the scary shit that fills my brain, you know the kind of stuff that properly formatted, just might be useful to a one-armed monkey with a Visa card. But I am waiting to learn the ropes here first.
My impressions so far:
1.) This site OWNZ me. I have only been lurking for a little over 48 hours and I've found answers to so many questions. I finally have found the true meaning of choda and that makes me happy.
2.) The Chatterbox STILL scares me. When I first wrote this, people were talking about metal bikini's and stuff. I felt so inadequate. I will continue to lurk for a while longer.
3.) I can see that it will pay untold benefits to study up on the community at large PRIOR to trying to node up anything. Oh, I have ideas! But they are all mine! Damn, I must fight this urge to be an XP whore already.
4.) Clicking on some of the big-dog names and looking at what they have book marked is almost as cool as the cool lists. Like dannye looks like the kind of person I would like to hang with. Unfortunately I doubt the reciprocity of said/felt emotions. Cuz, around here I'm just some n00b. But hey, a guy can dream.
5.) Okay, I have found my very own scratch pad. Silly me, I thought only more XP'd users got to use the scratch pad feature. 6.) I found my messagebox and a bunch of other useful tools. I am gaining strength here. Almost time to stand and subsequently get slammed back to the floor. I look forward to it, that's how you learn to walk and I am pretty sure the analogy holds true for learning to node.
