Welcome to IDMf.
As you've been lurking for a while, I guess you're already aware of The Hardware Thread
on here..if not, then make sure to check it out..you should feel right at home there.
It's good to have you with us and I'm sure your talents and skills will really come in handy on here. In fact, the IDMf label was recently looking for help from anyone interesting is mastering releases for them, which also sounds like something right up your street, as they say.
My point is there's lots to do on here, if you're willing to jump in at the deep end..but if you'd rather slide in slowly, then that's fine, too..don't be shy, just be a part of the community and get posting.
