    Well I found this forum while tinkering around adding to my C# skills and ran across Le Gardien's "Custom RichTextBox Control" tutorial (http://janvdl.com/showthread.php?58-Custom-RichTextBox-in-C) and this place looked pretty sweet so I thought I would join.

    A bit about me:
    - I work as an IT Support Analyst at a private university in Canada, though I don't think that title fully covers all the stuff I do haha. I mainly focus on the upkeep of end user systems (desktop/ laptops) and helping students with helpdesk issues, but I also manage and deploy a lot of servers and networking hardware as well. In a dept. of only 3 people (managing over 100 staff / faculty and 1000 students), you become a bit of a jack of all trades.
    - I wouldn't call myself an amazing programmer, but I can stumble my way through a number of languages, mainly: C#, php, html/css, VB (.net, vbscript, vba, etc), python, java, and (recently) some powershell.

    Pretty much I'm just an all around tech lover that likes to tinker and learn as much as I possibly can. I look forward to seeing what there is to learn here, and where I can offer any insights I might have as well.

    For the last time, it's not a physical box of sand... :p

    Welcome mrsifter, it's great to see a new face. The forum tends to be rather quiet at times because we don't have a lot of members, but what we lack in quantity we make up for in quality. We have very friendly and knowledgable members who help out wherever they can :)

    Re: Hey All!

    If you want me to, I can make that happen by burying the server in sand. ;)

    That would be a box in sand, not a sandbox :p

    @tux, and if you use a really big box of sand you can give the RIAA a pirate's treasure map and a shovel when they come knocking?

    Re: Hey All!

    Okay....what if I actually build a server with the case made of sand?

    Re: Hey All!

    I think just putting sand INTO the case makes it a sandbox. But I predict overheating problems.
