Welcome to the group Technician Q! You're just in time, as the kettle has just boiled and I've brought some brownies in that were reduced on Yellow Stickers last night.

Don't worry too much about all that eagerness and enthusiasm - that will soon wear off. :-)

Thank you Technician Q (Very mysterious).
Welcome to TecHKnow. Do not be afraid to ask any question(s). We have many colleagues who are only too happy to help out. Everybody here was once a new technician, so we understand exactly what you are experiencing right now.

Welcome!
Keep the enthusiasm -especially when you are run ragged and trying to build a large hadron collider with sticky back plastic, broken pencils and wool just as you hear your budget has been cut so the wool is out.

Technicians: providing solutions and more.

One of my predecessors was a hoarder so there's plenty of materials lying around. Lots of Really Useful Looking stuff like bits of mounts and a whole deep Gratnell full of castors.

Welcome to the best (other sites are available!) tech site, never known a question not to be answered!
And remember, there's no such thing as a daft/stupid question.
As TecHKnow says, we were all new once....

Now there's a challenge!
Can anyone give a date for when I was new?

I hope not! I'd just be thinking of leaving primary school now....

When I was a new technician the WWW was still 18 years away, but I was emailing Chernobyl data 3 years before that!

That's the length of service on the site that your profile says ... which is coincidentally the same as mine so maybe that was the site creation date or something?

You try to tell the young 'uns that the internet is not the same as the "world Wide Web" and they won't believe you ... Those heady days of unix mail, uucp, the first Janet network, gopher, ftp (soon to depart unfortunately), telnet (still use that!) plus all the custom BBS stuff via "my RS232 interface lead" (sung to the background beat of Status Quo's Spitting Image puppets obviously :-) )
Those were the days when I I was on the top of the pile, knew how computers worked and how to use them. Now I'm a technOAP who is scared of smart phones!
