I've been here for a little while. I've forgotten just how long. I know there was one fewer movie back then. I want to welcome all the new folks, and send my greetings to the old timers.
One thought I'd like to add. THe TrekBBS is a great starting point. I'd really recomend trying to take part in local gatherings, if there are any other posters in your area. I've made a couple of good friends here, who I wouldn't if I just stuck to staying on line. And not only are these poeple not wierd, they appreciate my wierdness!
