Greetings, all.  Lurker for years, finally decided to join so I could ask the occasional question.

Rather than yak on about myself [Boring!], allow me to talk about "stuff" instead.  And since this is a Tech Forum, here are two lists of things, mostly [but not all] Tech-related, that are either personal likes or dislikes.  You can probably tell more about me from these lists than anything else...

;begin wacky list

Stuff I Like:

NT 5
AutoCAD before 2010
Western Electric
Vern Buerg's "List"
EditPad
DOS
Tektronix
UltraEdit32
Bell System Practices
HP RPN Calculators
Wordstar Professional 4.0
DEC
Open Wire
Air-Gapping and Physical Security
Cannabis
The PSTN on a real SDH Backbone [RIP]
Personal Responsibility
Dark green or amber text on a truly black background
Wireshark
European TV
Phreaking/Hacking
Truth

Stuff I Don't Like:

Windows 10
Social Media
Subscription Software
Marketing clowns who expect a Pavlovian response to the word "Cloud"
Fools
AutoCAD after 2010
BIOS Buggery
Hype [Don't believe it!]
Crowds, and the Madness thereof
The Internet [It had its Day]
Games
HTML, Scripts, Beacons, etc. in email
Browser Software that allows Fingerprinting
The Tyranny of Sunk Costs
People who use Title Case Text way too much in Foolish Lists like this one

;end list

The owners of this forum are probably reading this list right now and thinking "Oh no, is THIS the demographic we are attracting now?  This guy is a dinosaur!!!"  Fear not, I'm sure that I am just an aberration. :D

We are wondering why blockchain is not in the list of stuff you don't like. :dubbio:

:hello:

That would be a good thing, but since among the "likes" there are BOTH "NT 5" AND "HP RPN Calculators", this small omission is not a problem to join the club.

Anecdata, only a few weeks ago I have  (by a rather large  margin) outsped a young engineer (my HP 28C vs. his smartphone calculator).

The good news being that I am still fast enough, the bad ones being that I bought the  HP calculator some five years before :w00t::ph34r: the engineer was born and I wasn't even a kid anymore at the time.

Welcome, jimfromPA :).
