Welcome to IDMf..good to have you here with us.
I'm sure you're going to "meet some brilliant people on this forum"..and some not-so-brilliant, too. But don't let that put you off in any way from being an active member on here..you'll find we're all pretty nice once you get to know us..honestly, it's true.
Read much, post often and..most importantly of all..have fun.
See ya around.
