New to ocPortal & thought that I'd pop in to introduce myself. I just did a goofy thing & posted a few questions in 'deploying' & ended up doing some digging to ultimately figure it all out myself. Sooooo, feeling like a dork, I figured I might as well give a proper hello to try & redeem myself towards the people that saw the silly edits before I deleted the post. :$

So yes, I'm Christina. I'm not blonde & I'm quite handy with the computer. Started out as a designer, but found myself learning more & more about programming over the years. I've spent quite a bit of time working on some sites with Zencart & love it. (BluBrix is a site that I've created for the artwork of my fiance & I.) Now have an idea for a community site & found ocPortal to be an awesome fit for it.

I look forward to meeting everyone & learning here. Hopefully, down the road, I'll be able to share some mods & themes.

Christina

Hi, and Welcome.

Glad to have you aboard, and you'll find that this bunch of ocPortal fanatics will hold you to your promise of "mods & themes" - down the road!

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

Love your art; p.s. I'm new too from Las Vegas, Nevada

Hi Christina:

My name is Vick; I am also an artist (pastel painting) as well as a web dev/designer and am considering ocPortal as an alternative to Drupal or Magento. I think your and your fiance's art is remarkable! Really beautiful work.

I just joined as well so for anyone else reading this, my url is http://indiconv.com, which was purely designed by me to get me a regular (not freelance) job. I am ashamed of the inaccessibility and sloppy insertion of Ajax-I'm a cobbler, if anything. Tried to get bf on board with web des/dev but he'd rather gamble for a living…. ce la vie.

My newest iteration of Indico (redesign) attracted a lot of interest at first but I'm so sick of the Ajax popups now I could barf! I'm actually a technical writer (that's what my degree says), but want to start my own online retail company. Since I'm bootstrapping, the only way I can do it is if I can do all the programming myself.

I'm not much of a programmer, know just enough to be dangerous (do not taunt the dynamite monkey!) to myself and others. Hate RTML. Didn't like Joomla three years ago, maybe it's better now. I've been off work due to spinal surgery for a year and am trying to get ready to get back into the game, learn something new, hopefully profitable.

Live in Vegas, advantage video poker player, rarely live poker any more (after online poker prop job, RT is too slow!) the casinos are catching on to the math and it's hard to find decent plays anymore without a huge BR. So on with the store… Huzzah!

Nice to meet you, Christina, and everyone and thanks to the ocPortal team for providing this wonderful product open source as well as the documentation and forum.

Cheers,

Vick
