Default Hello everyone, Kent Pribbernow here

Just wanted to pop in and introduce myself to everyone. My name is Kent Pribbernow, digital media enthusiast and techno geek. Many of you might recognize me as <b>"Foo Fighter"</b> on other Thoughts Media forums, which I often frequent. I am a web designer/Tech support specialist and I love testing the latest in digital media technology. Among other topics, I will be covering the "Mac beat" here at DMT, since I am a Mac user (as well as PC), and I'm a big fan of Apple products. But don't think for one minute that I will give Mac gear a free ride. I may be fond of Apple, but I never drink the company Kool-Aid. :wink: <br /><br />You can expect my product reviews and editorials to be fair and concise. If a product really lives up to its promises and works well, I will tell you about it. If it doesn't...well you'll hear about that too. Boy will you hear about it! :twisted:<br /><br />Beyond my writing duties here, I love answering questions and supporting the community. So if you have something to say, or are in need of some help or advice, please send me an email or Private Message. Or use the forum to post your request and I, as well as the rest of the DMT community, will try to help you as best we can. Thanks for reading. Hope to see all of you in the forms regularly.

Ahhh, always wondered who was behind the "Foo Fighter" mask. Nice to finally meet you. I recall after seeing the sig originally and googling to find out the history behind the name (beyond the band. :^). I'm not a Mac user, but my bro-in-law is. I'll have to steer him to your reviews!

Paul

Hi PMRADIO. I probably should have made it more clear in my post that that I won't just be handling Mac related stuff. You'll see me posting general news stories, as well as Windows/PC related reviews. But all Mac related stuff falls upon my shoulders as well.

By the way, for those who don't know....a "Foo Fighter" is a UFO. Or to be more precise; it was the nickname World War II fighter pilots gave to unidentified aircraft. Believe it or not there were many numerous UFO sightings in WWII, and many air crews encountered strange lights and mysterious objects. Just a little FYI. :wink:

Thanks for the clarification. Having read your comments on various boards, including PPCT, I know you'll have an opinion about lots of things. :wink:

Well, one thing is certain: with Foo here, things will be a little quieter on PPCT! :wink:
