Re: Introduce yourself!

Hi CG!


Thanks for dropping by.


Don't worry about the picture - it's completely optional and fine to remain anonymous picture-wise! 🙂  It's great just to see you saying Hi on this thread.


I haven't watched Frasier in ages, good programme though! Niles's I can't remember her name... aaah that's bugging me.  What was it again? Or are we not meant to know her name?

It's good to see BT embrace social media.

Re: Introduce yourself!

Well after getting over the shock, I thought I'd put finger to keyboard.

About me:
I was born as a baby and grew into a child.
From a child I grew into a teenager, then into my twenties and so on.
My age bracket is between 35 and 105. So I may be younger or older than you think.
I became a BT BB customer in Feb09.
Not long after joining I stumbled on the BT beta forums.
On that forum I learned so much very quickly and for those that helped me you don't realise how grateful I am.
I used my real name on there (or did I?) and then changed it to DS after finding out that I could.
Some may know the real me and some may not.
I made some very good friends on there and most appear to have continued on here.
I had to think long and hard on whether to continue to use DS as my id or choose another when the BTCCF fired in to life. I guess you can tell which one I went for?

I tend to help out on here with problems that I've already had. And yes I still have problems!!
There are many more knowledgeable members on here whose experience exceeds mine so I leave them to it.
You may notice which members answer the most on each forum section.

I try to be friendly on here.
I also try to have a bit of a laugh and a joke.

Oh and lastly the only picture that I could find that looks like me is.......

Re: Introduce yourself!

Welcome guar gum from sydeny. Funnily enough I was born in Sydney which some might not realise is an anagram of sydeny. Fascinating information about guar gum. I see Kerry edited your post; I wonder if she feared some bits might be boring.


Anyway, a little soupspoon of information about me: I've been with BT longer than most of you. I sometimes sail very close to the wind on these forums.....


Hmmm.... ah yes, I have to endure a cat in the home called Beef. She was foisted on me by the rest of the family without a by-your-leave, and guess who has to clean the litter tray out? Yup, me, Pash. She's a very boring cat that moans much of the time when she's not sleeping, and I find guar gum far more interesting than her.


Anyway I hope the dental practice is going well there in sydeny guar gum.

Re: Introduce yourself!

I suppose that I introduce myself indeed...


Well first I joined this forum because I just like to express my feelings on how I was poorly treated by BT and hoping to find help to solve some issues that I am having with your company. I basically like to complain on a few problems so hopefully that some BT forum members accept me for my ways indeed. I am here to let everyone know how disgusted I am with BT.

Re: Introduce yourself!



I've been a BT broadband customer for a long time; I have a btopenworld primary acct. Overall I've been very happy with BT, and I find these forums a welcome addition and good source of info. I like to keep current. I was a forum manager for 4 forums on an IP called Compuserve for many years ... until AOL bought them out and turned the service into an flashy, unintelligent, adolescent vacuum.


My username is a Danish word; I am married; I have two sons (one a Lt Comm in the Navy, the other is a teacher); I have two grandchildren; a Springer Spaniel named Molly; I am a keen cook; I love long drives in the countryside on a sunny day.


It's nice to meet to you all.

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hi guys ...


OOhh  it's posh in here .....  and leather couch as well !


Makes a nice change from the normal forum ... and I love that pic that DS put on his post, always thought you were a bit scary mate! ..... only joking, but you know that.

Me? .... well I've been around computers and internet since God was a lad .... I remember using a bulletin board called Micronet, before the internet as we know it was born .... so I've worn out a keyboard or two.

I'm amongst the elder members of the forum I guess .... and been around for over 2 generations with the life experience to match the timescale.

I played in a rock band and tried my hand at rallysport in my younger days ... now I take the dog for a walk and prune the roses!

Talking of dogs, it's Mollie's feeding time ..... a Munsterlander with a huge appetite, and an attitude when she's hungry! ..... I'd best go and feed her .... catcha y'all later.
