Hey guys just wanted to give a quick intro to myself. My name is Mike I'm hiding out in Columbus Ohio after moving from Oklahoma. I'll be 24 July 10th and I love my Jeep, girlfriend, and computers.

I found this place thanks to Google. I saw a few references too "the other forum" from some threads over at Project-JK and figured id try and find the alternative paradise. Well here I am. I see some familiar faces that I figured had just faded interest. NOPE I was wrong y'all where here all along.

Yep you got that right. Pretty much every county around franklin county was a class 3. I had the cb on and every 2 minutes someone was *****ing about how no one could leave Columbus or they would get fined.

I had a blast that day driving around like any other normal day just a bit slicker than normal. I pulled out a few people stuck on the side of the highway. I really enjoyed helping them out.

The Jeep and I both came back in one piece so I say it was a good day.

O yea almost forgot I remember you from project helping point out that my brake lines where a little tight when I was installing my lift and posted the pictures.

I got rid of that crap lift and installed a OME HD boy what a difference. I love it! The only thing I did not like was I have no patience for Jeep stuff and installed the lift in the parking lot of my apartment complex with the temp around 40ish and there was still a few snow mounds around lol.

Thanks for the welcome guys!

Hey Mike, welcome to the site.
Thanks! I see you have a link for L.O.S.T. in your sig. Im a old L.O.S.T. member myself. KJmike06 Here is a pic of my KJ.

You must be a C programmer.
I was wondering when someone would catch that. Just for the people who don't know basically when you learn to program the first "program" you create is a little box that says Hello world.

Now with that said. I am not a programmer unfortunately. I took a few hours of it but never really got heavy into it. Im a huge hardware guy. Give me a box of parts and a OS cd and I'm a happy camper. I always tell my friends that my dream job would be to make enthusiast computer for Alienware or Dells xps or any of those high end computer manufactures who offer overclocked computers.

I love putting computers together and then making them run equal to a computer that would have cost me double.

My current computers main specs are as follows.
Intel e6600 stock=2.4 gig overclocked=3.6gig.
evga 780I motherboard.
evga 8800gts sitting at 625 core, 1700 memory, and 1500 shaders.
OCZ ddr2 6400 timings set to 4,4,4,12 speed 800.
2 250 gig sata2 drives in raid 0.
This is all on air cooling. If I had some water cooling or maybe even phase change I bet I could get more but I want this hardware to last.

I have had a computer catch on fire before and its not fun. :nuke:
