Hi I'm new to the site , just thought I'd pop my head in to say hello.
I'm dyslexic due to having had a mild stroke and the effects of long term prescribed medication . I'm retired early because of a major spinal injury with interest in DIY in brick wood metal and electronics.
I belong to the All New Square Foot Gardening website as it is a form of gardening I have been fortunate to be able to do so carriyng on with 50 odd years of gardening here in the UK.

I also belong to the " The Acccidental Smallholder " website and it was because of that site that I came seeking alternative wood burnig systems that extracted the most heat out of the burnt wood & flue gasses . So I discovered The Rocket Mass wood burner.
At present that is where my interest will go on this site till I get a better understanding of things and locate a few answers that have caused me to wonder how thing happen in the rocket system .

Thank you kind Sir .
This is certainly an interesting and varied site . I ended up spending a couple of hours running through just a couple of threads . Had a real good chuckle and headed off back down memory lane several times doing it.

It looks like I'll be looking in from the side lines for a few weeks till I grasp the site etique and humour .

Hi Dave,
We're pretty nice round here, promise!
Humour can be a hard one to get across online, especially internationally...
I used to find emoticons irritating. Now I use them constantly. NO less annoying, but if I put in a face, it gives everyone a pretty good idea what tone I was after.

Aye Leila I totally agree with you .
I've posted more than my fair share of international lead balloons even with extensive use of the emoticons to help them float.

Re emoticons .... Is there a good set that works well with the site or is is a case of finding one and copying & pasting it in

There's a broad selection just above the text-box when you're composing. Click the '+' by 'emoticons'.
Some, especially in the left-hand column, are broken, and I always check before posting.
