What is the purpose of the SOTDRT?


Recommended Posts

The SOTDRT is a bit of an experiment we are going to try and see how it goes. One of the suggestions made in the Suggestion thread was a "newbie sandbox" where people could get their feet wet before jumping right into the deep end. After reading a lot of posts and having a discussion with the Helpmeets, we decided that this was worth a try.

FJ can be a bit intimidating for the new poster and some of our long term posters, understandably get tired of answering the same questions over and over. Our search engine is...less than robust...which does not help matters. So we are hoping this area will be a nice compromise.

This is NOT a mandatory area for low post count/lurkers to post in. You can post anywhere you have access. This is just an area for people who may be a bit on the shy side and not wish to jump right into the deep end. You can introduce yourself, look at the FAQ and the other information provided here and ask questions without fear of being told to "use the search engine." When you are comfortable, we hope you will join us in the "deep end" and post in the other areas of the forum.

Likewise, long term posters are welcome and encouraged to join in here. Please remember that this area is meant to be a learning area for new people and there will likely be repeat questions, so if that kind of thing bothers you, this will probably not be of much interest to you.

This area will have a slightly higher moderator presence, at least initially, because we do want folks to understand that new people are welcome to ask whatever questions they wish in this particular forum, even if it's been asked eleventy billion times before. We ask that you respect that.

Most importantly, we hope everyone has fun posting no matter which area of the forum they choose to post in.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
