Alright Troops?

Hello there. Not too original I guess, but I'm not trying to game anyone here. Yet.

Registered a while ago, spent most of that time being one of those "theory" guys I read and hear so much about, but even with various things happening in life, with friends (or "friends" if you get the idea), I've decided it's time to just start doing things on my own. Even bought a cool purple hat for the purpose! Also though talking to some of you would help me, and hopefully one day I can be the wizened old guy with the vast sleeves helping others.
