    New here but really old...

    I'm a recovering analog dinosaur and I'm new here but I'm actually really old, even to the point of advancing decrepitude. Ah well, here's to entropy.

    I'm a semi-retired film/video pro, I live in Whittier CA and have a wife and two kids, a dog and two cats.

    You can call me Chex or you can call me Jeff.

    Cheers, mate

    Hi, welcome to the forum.
    I notice British vernacular. Am I wrong?

    BwaaaHAHAHAHA -- That might be one of the funniest things anyone's ever asked me.
    Uhhh, no I'm afraid I'm not British. Would it help me if I WAS British? Maybe I could fake it, LOL.

    But no, born in the DC area, DC-NY upbringing, moved to MN for college, then to L.A., then Arkansas, Dallas TX, then back to L.A. again.

    "Cheers mate" is British but obviously no longer unique.

    OMG I actually forgot about that completely but you're right. I guess I say it because a British friend of mine got me in the habit.

    LOL, but not totally - no Brit spells 'analogue' as 'analog'.
