    Hi,
    having lurked for a few days, I finally noticed the "introduce yourself..." forum, slow or what! Thought I'd take the opportunity to say hello before posting what will undoubtedly be dumb beginner questions in the darkroom forums.

    Although I'm 44 I'm an almost total darkroom novice and find this site an unbelievably deep well of information. It's good to see so many of us out there who are not taking the great leap forward into the d-word. I have enough dealings with computers and peripherals at work without using them in my free time.

    Yours,

    Mark

    Good Afternoon, Mark,

    Welcome! You're right about the depth of knowledge here. I've had a darkroom for over thirty years and used it a lot; nevertheless, there are a number of APUG members who are a quantum leap ahead of me.

    Greetings from the middle of the Pacific Ocean; Hawaii. Looking forward to seeing some of your work. I visited the UK a few years ago, and still have friends living in London.

    Welcome Mark!

    I'm also an 'older-newbie' but don't tell anyone... haha I can understand why it takes a while to get around to introducing yourself... there is just so much info here, it's hard to get your head around all of it...and it just keeps coming! :D

    So, welcome and hope to see your prints in the gallery!
    Jeanette

    As another newbie to the forums, I also say "welcome".

    I know what you mean about having enough of computers at work. Of course, I'm at work right now goofing off on one.... :wink:
