    Smile Simply saying "Hello!"

    Yes, as someone who has just joined, I'm simply saying "Hello!" & introducing myself.
    Although my Christian name is Alan, everyone has always called me Al - so that's what I will use here.
    I do not consider myself to be particularly egocentric, but a few remarks about myself seems to be a good idea.

    I'm 67 years of age and amongst my hobbies I include mathematics. I am a retired electronics engineer, so maths. has always been predominant in my life, professionally and for leisure. Educationally, I left school in 1968 with four GCE A-levels, including Pure and Applied Maths. Grades weren't adequate to go to Univ.: you needed excellent grades to do that all those years ago! But I did complete my education to HNC+ in electronics and communications engineering.

    So much for the formal bits: now to a lighter vein. Why is mathematics so appealing to some people? (Which also, therefore, raises the supplementary Q. "And why not to some others?"). Is it the thrill of discovery, similar to that of an ancient sea-going voyager? And why are so many mathematicians hooked on caffeine? (I know I am). Anyway, 'nuff said for now. I do have some maths. Qs I would appreciate help with, but now I'll stop and read the various forums first. I hope the above blurb wasn't found to be too boring!

    I look forward to talking to you all in the future.

    For the attention of the moderators.

    The above post is a duplicate: in essence, it exists elsewhere on this Forum.
    That duplication was a genuine mistake before I got the 'feel' of the structure of this Forum: it was my first post.
    I will leave the mods. to decide as to whether to let this post stand or to delete it.
    My sincere apologies for any inconvenience thus caused.
