Hello, everyone! Greetings from Alabama, USA.

I'm a long-time WoT fan. I think I started reading the series around 1996 when a college roommate introduced me to the series. Though, I have to admit that despite my long "tenure" as a fan, I actually haven't read the last three books. Maybe now I'll find the motivation to finally finish!

I am an instructor at a local community college where I teach computer science and business. Lots of office hours means I can check the forums more! :)

Along with WoT, I am a fan of David Weber's Honor Harrington series. I have been a member of the fan club for that series for about 11 years now and serve as their CTO.

I look forward to meeting many in the community!

Welcome to the community, Zoul! I always love seeing new people join, and it seems like you'll fit right in. :pleased-1: How did you find this place, if I may ask?

Also, it's nice to meet another teacher, although I teach languages, and only to adults. :look: Hats off for teaching at a college, although I guess that's still a notch better than high school and below.​

Thanks, @Arinna Katal !

Thanks, @Luna Morn !

I found TV.net in kind of a roundabout way. I like to dabble in old-school text-based games (MUDs/MUSHes) and came across a post on a game site which led to a discussion with a member here, so I thought I'd check it out.

Teaching college is (mostly) good times. I've been at it for almost 20 years now. I'm the department chair and do some data-wrangling for the college, now, so I actually teach a lot less than I once did.

Greetings, neighbor! I started reading WoT about the same time you did. And I enjoyed the Honor Harrington books, too, though it's been many years since I read them.

Glad you found us!

Hey Zoul,

Fellow south easterner here as well. I’m over in Atlanta. I’ve been a fan of the books since about that time as well. Glad to have you here.

Welcome!

I'm in the middle of the Honor Harrington books and loving them!

If anyone ever wants to talk HH, I'm game! I re-read (most of) the main series from time to time.

Thanks to everyone for the welcome!
