    Hi all :D

    Been a little while - many of you probly don't know me, so hello to you. For the rest that do know me - Hi, been a long time :oops:

    Was talking to a certain member of CF tonight, and thought I woudl drop in and say hello. I am now back in the UK, flew in a few hours ago, glad to be back, haven't had a decent pint in ages lol. I've done allot of travelling, and have had next to no internet access. Travelled through Canada, and some of the US before flying home.

    I hope to become a regular on the boards again, and look forward to catching up with those that I do know, and getting to know those I don't :D

    I'm still in IT, although I have only been jobs here and there, mainly small office and home based users. Did allot of work with VPN, and loved it. ALso got to know Lotus Notes very well, basicly travelled the last few months with a large company, who took internet personal internet access very seriously as far as say, sending a personal email to someone, or visiting the forums. Very frowned upon. :(

    I've now left the company, come home and looking to chill for a few weeks before working again

    anyway - enough of the essay writing, catch you all soon :)

    Hi Andy,

    Thanks for dropping back in - can't say how glad I am to see you back on CF, mate. Yeah, a lot has changed, and a lot has stayed the same, and a load of new faces have come and gone, but CF is better and stronger than ever. You played an important part in making this so, so here's looking forward to having you back helping out around here, and meeting the new Guys.

    And yeah, we still do beer !! :biggrin

    Thanks for the welcome all, was a bit worried about showing up again after so long - kinda jumped ship in a hurry, and I know I let some people down - so i appologies for that, hope there are no hard feelings.

    Travelled Most of Canada east from west, even got as far as yellowknife, which is pretty damn cold and boring. Also got to Ottowa, Toronto, Niagra falls, Edmonton, Calgary, Banff (that place is amazing!!!) went through the canadian rockies, VAncover, then flew down to California, saw San Francisco, and a few other's, went to Vegas (woohoo),then flew to New York, then back home to Moncton, packed my stuff, saw my Girl, and came to the UK.

    I had a great time, saw/met loads of people, abd had some great times. Although I am so glad to be back in the UK

    Currently in Bucks, but may end up going North for a job at some point. Not sure yet.

    Anyway, I've got about 1 zillion post to read through lol, the place seems extremly busy now. Well done gents :D

    Nice to come back and see CF so much stronger
