    Hello, all. I just joined today (13-03-12). I'm a career IT guy (retired). I got my iPad a couple of years ago and still love it. I'm also a musician and that is what I mostly do now. Tewnty years ago I had a NeXT computer on my desk. I was very glad to see that much of the NeXTstep technology went into OS X and iOS. I also have an iPhone 4 and a MacBook Pro plus sundry AirPorts.

    I'm looking forward to learning from the members here.

    Welcome! Sounds like you're pretty clued up but I'll give you some pointers for the forum anyway.
    I'd recommend reading the forum rules and looking at some of the stickies threads on here. Many of them are very useful, if you have time (and you'll need quite a bit) I'd also recommend reading the tips and tricks thread (search for it using the search bar) as that has some really useful pointers in it. A friendly reminder about any questions you may have, it's always best to search function to find something out first as the chances are your query has been answered before, whats more you'll often get a faster answer as it can take a while for someone to come along that can help sometimes. If however, you search to no avail, go ahead and post something (preferably in the correct section [speeds up your answer and makes less work for the admins]), chances are someone will be able to help.
