Just a short introduction.
« on: September 26, 2021, 11:57:24 pm »
Hello, everyone. I figured since it's customary on forums, I'd write a little about-me... of course, my name's Mid. I'm a student studying systems administration at a college in Canada, and recently I've also been studying computer science on my own. Some of my interests include computing, anime, and - to some extent - video games, mostly strategy RPGs and platform fighters. Recently I've also started to take an interest in woodwork and cooking; on occasion I'm also known to dabble in combat sports.

It's been a while since I've been involved with an "old-world" style internet forum, but I'm hoping to spend quite a bit of time here; I find they're much more conducive to proper discussion, compared to IRC and similar services. Hopefully we can all get along!

Anyway, that's my bit - feel free to PM me or send me an email any time.

Hi glad you could make it!
We have a few here who like to cook, and I have done some woodworking, although my dad is better at it than I am.
You sound like you have a lot of interests, and I presume furry is just one? 
Sometimes we have new furs say what got them into furry etc.  Feel free to post that in this thread if you want.

I have found this forum to have enough structure to keep drama to a minimum, and yet is fun.
Sometimes we do word games etc and that can be rather fun.
If you like to post poems or art/photos, we do that too.  Sometimes it sounds quiet here, but furs are checking in often.

I ALMOST got to meet JFET ( a goat hybrid) and MOSFET (his "brother") at DenFur, but due to Covid, they had to cancel.  :( :'(

Anyway, good to see a goat pop in, more meat for me!    I mean... more friends!  :)
Furry can be a fun hobby, hope you enjoy your time here.

Welcome fellow foody, woodworker and anime fan! Hope to see ya around often.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

Apologies for the long post, mods - if there're maximum length rules, feel free to point me at them, but I didn't see any and wanted to give everyone a proper response.

Thanks! I'll probably hang out in the tech subforums for the most part, but I'd love to exchange tips regarding other things from time to time.

I've only recently gotten into cooking and woodworking, since for the longest time I didn't have access to a proper kitchen or shop, but with makerspaces opening back up in my city I'm hoping to get more projects done. One thing I've been thinking of is designing a custom desk and - parts and tools permitting - maybe a set of 3D and dot matrix printers. I don't know if I'd say I have a *ton* of interests though - furry and computing are probably my two main.

I'm glad to hear that the forum is civil - that's a rare sight these days, outside of USENET. Games could be interesting - are there, perhaps, active tabletop sessions? I feel like Mutant: Year Zero or something would be fun in a forum setting. Unfortunately, I'm not much of the artistic type at the moment... far too busy with my studies in other areas, although I would like to learn to draw with charcoal at some point, maybe learn to play the hurdy-gurdy.


Sometimes we have new furs say what got them into furry etc.  Feel free to post that in this thread if you want.

As for what got me into furry... I don't actually know. Of course, when I was younger, I had the usual set of favorites - Secret of NIMH, The Lion King, Robin Hood, Sonic, whatever - but I never had a "click" moment. Just something I've always liked.

Unfortunately, I might be just a bit too much gote to eat - friends (and nibbles) are always welcome though.

Thanks - things are quite fine as of late, all things considered. Hopefully you're also doing well.
