    Hi all,

    I've been lurking for a while, reading posts and decided to take an active part in the forums.

    I'm currently using an iPad 2 3G 64GB and an iPhone 4S 64GB; been using iOS devices for a few years now, mostly for writing and business-related activities.

    Anyway, glad to be here!

    Thanks for the welcome!

    I tend to lurk before participating or to help people because so many forums have been taken over by zealots to bully beginners so much that these poor people are afraid to even ask for help, which is an integral part of what the forums are supposed to be about (climbing down from the soapbox, LOL!)

    I look forward to participating!

    Hello PDADoc - welcome to the forum! :)

    With the Caduceus avatar, I assume that your are a medical doctor? If so, I just retired from an academic position (Professor of Radiology, now Emeritus, at Wake Forest University Med Ctr) - looking forward to your participation - Dave

    Yes I know what you mean, some Forums tend to be the private domains for a certain number of members to laud it over others who dare to join. You will find this Forum a real Community of members from all over the world and different walks of life joining together to share their experiences and learn of the iPad and then we enjoy it so much we share our everyday lives. What could be better? So glad you have joined us. Enjoy!!

    Welcome also from my end!! Happy for you to join the forum!! Like Leelai said, this group is a very outgoing and friendly group. Always here to help in any way!! It's nice to see so many members that are in the healthcare field!! I, too am part of that arena-with a Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy from Andrew Taylor Still University (ATSU)! Been in practice for 18 years and love it! :)

    Hello, I am new to the iOs iPad stuff. I am in this forum to gain some insight. But how do I post? Most forums I have been in have a post new message, thread..... Option. The only thing I see is the reply to thread option . Thank

    Hi Skimonkey - just a minor hijack of the thread; but I was born in Toledo and grew up in southern MI near the Ohio border (Lamberville-Temperance area) - went to undergraduate & medical school in Ann Arbor (University of Michigan for those not aware of the geography of Michigan) - where in MI are you located (only if you care to release that information - completely up to you, of course) - Dave :)

    Well, I guess another minor hijack - apologize to PDADoc - sorry! :(

    But to DJcarey - if you are signed in, then select 'Forum' at the top of the opening screen; decide which forum that you would like to place your 'new' thread - select that forum which will open; then there should be an option in the top left to add a new thread - select that & you should be ready to post - let us know if that works for you - good luck! :)
