Hey, I'm new

Post by livelonger87 »

A friend on my Windows Live messenger contact list recommended me to this forum.

I came here to look for beta OS's, e.g. pre-final Windows Vista OS's. However, it seems like this forum doesn't just specialise in operating systems, as it also features beta's for games, off-topic discussion and more. So, I may be posting on here quite frequently

Hopefully this forum isn't full of ban nazi's like the ones on www.facepunchstudios.com

Yeah, for those who don't know. The forum is owned by Garry Newman, the guy who created Garry's Mod, which is available on Steam. You can get the previous versions (9 and below) free. However, the latest (Some still call it Gmod 10, which the name is just Garry's Mod now) is available for 10$ on Steam.

As for those who don't know what Garry's mod is. It's a mod for Half-life 2 which allows you to control everything in a sandbox. It's very easy to use and can be very fun. There are lot's of additional addons created by the community here: www.garrysmod.org

Anyway, more about me...

Most of my usernames on the net are: Livelonger87
Some of you may have seen me on forums? Or some of you may already have me on your contact lists for Windows Live messenger.
My email is: livelonger87@hotmail.com

My interests are... well, music!! I pretty much like alkinds of music, mostly trance (Armin van buuren ASOT!! ). However, my main interests are I.T, computers. I learn as much as I can on these things, infact it was only around 6 years ago which was the first time using one. Anyway, my main interests in I.T at the moment is the OS, which I've been testing Windows Vista since Beta 2. I've seen many Wow's on the beta's that never made it to the final, which kind of annoys me. However!! I have seen Windows 7

I'll be posting screenshots and a video of it sometime soon. Anyway, hopefully this will be a great community!!

One last thing, may I have access to the beta download forum to download Longhorn beta's? I want to build up a collection of Microsoft OS's!!
