    Hi people... I've had a iPad one 64gb 3g for a year now, and absolutely love it, one of my toys that really does get a lot of use.

    This site is not a stranger to me, as I've have been lurking and having a browse of the messages, picking up a few hints from time to time..lol
    but figured it was probably time I actually registered and maybe contributed.

    Well as you know the new iPad 3 was released here in the UK yesterday March 16th, and I did something I always vowed I would never do, and that was to queue for something, and yesterday morning you guessed it, I travelled 55 miles with my wife and joined the queues to purchase a new iPad 3 64gb 4G.

    Im a retired pensioner, so getting on in years, (but with 30yr history in computers) so for me to break this lifetime tradition, I suppose shows how foolish/how keen I was on getting one, and to be honest it combined in a whole days shopping for my wife and I, so we had quite a nice day out as well. There were probably 400 people queueing in total, but the Apple staff were very good, organised it well, and in some ways was a little fun I suppose, also handing out hot/cold drinks donuts and other goodies..lol.
    :D
    Anyway... thats a wee intro covering yesterday, I will save any other thoughts and comments for the forum pages, and look forwards to a bit of iPad banter. :)

    Thanks guys

    Thank you.. mate, I have a history of programing too, tho mainly PC, assembler, C/C++ but funny enough have been dabbling with Apples SDK tools and attempting to write a daft small app.. one might say more as part of the learning process. One of the benefits of retirement is the obvious gaining of more spare time, well thats the theory anyway, but I actually seem to more busy these days than before I retired. You have to keep the brain working albeit what little there is left in my case..ie. use it or lose it springs to mind..lol

    Cheers mate... off to read the rules.. tho I don't expect them to be too much different from several other forums I am a member of, but AIS off to read them now..lol
