Sounds like an excellent idea.

Tatiana, do you mean tech as in technical support for this forum, or as in chatting about appliances and gadgets and gizmos?

Mr. Jellyfish (-instead a saluting smilie here-) Smile

I mean somewhere to chat about appliances and gadgets, anything electronic.


Certainly somewhere for everyone to talk about their computer issuses in particular.
Moony looks like she would benefit from posting 'the difficulty' she is having, and some one would be able to answer her.
Moony lives in a very isolated district, and this would be a great way for her to gain control over her computer...by learning how to maintain it and use it.
Being able to post a PC problem and be able to get some kind of answer within a few hours would be sooooo good for Moony, and anyone else, as needed.

it would be fun, in a serious kind of way.


I like computers, both as a communication tool and as machines i pay to have built.
I think a thread/section/whatever you call it would be good because then people can ask and learn.....


Perhaps call it Technics

I like Technics. My hi-fi/stereo (choose your description clown ) system is Technics. Bought long before the millennium change, but still a goody!

There's way too many sections in my opinion.

Which ones would you get rid of? And why, if you like.

A few too many, IMO.

The "Science" area could be renamed "Science and Technology" to accomodate gadgets, the Beatles could be merged with the Rock section.

That would prune it down by two.

Bob, paradoxically, must have his own section, just because he is BOB.

I would also have thought sports were off-topic, but that area already has 31 threads. Evidently lots of people go for that foolishness. Razz

The Beatles section is a relic of original ATU which was founded by a Beatles fan. A Beatles fan who was none too friendly towards the membership when things went haywire. I would tend to agree with pinz. I like the Beatles. And I like the Stones. And all manner of rock 'n' roll. No other artist in r 'n' r has their own section. (Zimmy is a different proposition - just... )

EDIT: pinz has edited his post while I was posting. Where's Nash with her editing ban when you need her?

I think it's as well to keep it segregated from the real topics!

Unless she's turned into just pop tart. Or we could add a pop-tart section. What a Face

And a correction--sports (Physical exercise) only has 13 threads; maybe that could be merged with "Off topic."

But it's your call. I know that when somebody makes too many suggestions, somebody will suggest putting him in charge. affraid

Fair enough on the re-arranging of the threads and sections.


Now, what is a pop-tart?

Getting rid of the sports section could have the nice side effect of having oldgitostrich mope and moan. OK, that clinches it. I'll get rid of the sports section. After removing that and the Beatles section, and with the recent addition of the gadgets section, there should be exactly as many sections as on ATU MkI. Arrow
No moaning at all . It is entirely your decision.
