    I am NEW to this Forum; hoping all goes well, both for now and in the future

    Hi Folks,

    I am new here.

    I am still trying to figure out how this forum works.
    For example, it took me two hours just to figure out how to upload my profile photo to my profile.
    I am old, and so...figuring out things like this is no longer so easy for me.

    My expectations for posting on this forum are that I might find a few good friends.

    I am not new to Asia, but I am definitely new to posting on these types of forums.

    These days, it seems to me, things are changing fast:
    What was here yesterday is often not here today.

    The reason I found this forum is that, at about 2:00 AM, while doing my laundry, I found this TD forum on my cell phone.

    I look forward to posting a few useful and interesting comments, from time to time.
    However, I do not expect to post too many comments, per month.

    Basically, I think that I would prefer to just read others' comments, rather than post too many of my own, in most cases.

    Also, I wonder about whether or not I can post videos from YouTube on this forum.

    Does this forum permit posting music videos from YouTube, for example?

    Anyway, I will try and see (LongDo):

    Here is one of my favorite tunes....



    Please let me know, if anyone might read this Topic, whether or not you can listen to this favorite tune of mine....
    Thank you.

    I am still getting used to things here.

    Thank you very much for welcoming me, though....

    Best regards,
    HISTONE H3

    Thank you.
    Welcome, you have mastered the "upload a tune" feature.

    Tell us of your memories related to the song, from 1968.

    One of our cars are named 'Minty'.

    I buy cars at Auction. I like the ones that have heaps of kids through them.

    Messy as, guaranteed to have sparkles everywhere, chewing gum in the carpet etc.

    Dealers hate them, but I've developed a knack and an aptitude to clean them.

    As long as they are basically sound, and cheap, I buy if the price is right.

    The second last car is called 'Steggy' ... it must have had 2 kids in it as it had a Pink Wand and a green plastic Stegosaurus ... and I sure as shite wasn't going to call it 'Wandy' ... so 'Steggy' it was.

    The latest one had a packet of 2 year old Mint flavoured chewing gum ... I wasn't going to back (bacca) in the name "Chewy" so the Boys declared it to be named 'Minty' ... so “God bless Minty, and all who sail in her”.

    I never thought, for a moment, the connotations that humble naming would have relevance on this Forum.

    Have I digressed?

    BTW, welcome to the Newbie and welcome back

    Hi H3,

    Whereabouts in Thailand are you living/visiting?

    Plenty of information on the forum to browse through while the TD members are having a squabble.

    Shame there are no likes or stickers for a good post. It makes me feel like I have a working penis again.

    There are but you will need more posts before you can use. The wee star below your avatar allows you to give reputation. Green if you like, red if ya don't.

    I am thinking...
    Maybe I should just stay in this Newbie forum....forever.

    Because

    When, each time, I attempt to post a comment elsewhere...
    Then...
    I must wait a long time before I finally see my comment appear.

    I ain't complaining.

    However, the time lag makes things a bit cumbersome.

    Is this sort of an initiation rite?
    Sort of like joining a fraternity to become a GREEK, or something?

    Or, why does one need to wait ages before seeing one's post published and "viewable" on the Topic Thread?

    Seems sort of counterproductive because...then...what is the point of posting?

    As far as I can tell....
    Most, if not ALL, of my comments seem both lucid and to the point.

    Also, not one of my comments could be construed as being offensive in any way.

    So...

    I am just sitting here mulling this over a bit...and still without a clue.

    "An anti troll measure."

    Nobody likes trolls; I must admit.

    But...

    Do I look like a troll to you?

    Be honest, for a change.

    "Why doesn't the mods help these poor refugees and shut off the post review and limit."

    a. You are DARNED Right, Sir.

    b. I thought this forum might be the WINNER for me.

    c. IF you wish to read more of my great comments, including my thoughts about the Scottish accent, and much more about my LOVE for Celtic music, not MUZAK, then you should let me in to this forum with NO RESERVATIIONS.....!

    d. I am a LOVER of so many things Scottish. I am a HUGE fan of intelligent Scottish people...you don't even know.

    e. It seems to me that there are many Scottish people here.

    f. I have lived MANY years in HK. And, as we all know, after reading James Clavell, it was the Scotts that improved HK...SO MUCH!

    g. Also... I have many friends from Scotland. I kid you NOT.

    h. Therefore, if you wish, you might let me into this forum without this time-lag between when I post a comment, and when I see it published.


    Of course, this is up to you.

    And, if I were to be honest, there is really not much to recommend me.

    My greatest asset is that I own a keyboard....and not much else.

    Regards,
    Histone H3
