    Welcome aboard. Good to see you take the plunge. Contribute whenever. No rush.

    Hi, I'm 16 as of early this this year. I'm new to this kind of thing so please treat me well. And I look forward to learning, sharing opinions, discussing and more.

    But as far as your guys' awesome quotes go, my favorite is "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from MAGIC" by Arthur C. Clarke from Profiles of the Future 1961. And my original quote is: in an imperfect world there is no defect.

    I hope to have a good time, and you can call me Oz or Ouros for short.

    Welcome aboard Oz. Don't worry about being badly treated. If you have any problems send a private message to one of the moderators (names with green lettering) or the administrator (orange color). There's a handbook for new members with some good advice. Check it out.

    Hi, welcome to the WAB.

    To add or change an avatar, click on "settings', which is located at the top of screen next to "log out". You ought to be able to figure out the rest. Any problems: send me or any mod a private message.

    Welcome to all the new members. May you have a great time on the WAB!

    To make your stay easier recommend you check out this little guide a long time member put together.

    But understand something right away...there are several long time members or receive deference not just because they are long time members but they have long and distinguished careers in defense matters...military, government & industry.

    Enjoy!

    Don’t know what to say really. I’ve signed on and I reckon it won’t take long to see what I stand for ….. and what I do not. It wouldn’t do any good saying if I am liberal or conservative because I don’t prescribe to either. I follow what I consider common sense, no matter what clothing it’s wearing. The only thing I can say for certain is that I am awfully charming. Unfortunately not everyone can see that.


    Wish me luck!
