Thread: Hello all!

  1. #1

    Hello all!


    I have just graduated from University doing a computer science degree and I have found myself struck by a growing interest in the idea of trying my hand at some more 'traditional' things.

    Currently, I am in the middle of planning how to make my first knife and I really would like to try my hand at some deer stalking, for starters.

    Coming at all of these things from complete ignorance I feel like I should apologize for all of the stupid questions but I am looking forward to learning new things from you all.

    Welcome to SD.

    There's an unwritten law of inverse effect in operation on here - people feel obliged to apologise on first joining for nearly any and all questions, comments etc - when we ALL start somewhere and helping people in the sport is a large part of what SD is about. Then time goes by, they get comfy and 1000+ posts on, spout drivel, wind each other up and fall out over what day of the week it is - without ever a word of apology!

    In short, do not worry about questions. Asking them openly helps many others reluctant to post. If its a real concern feel free to PM - certainly us and a quick read of posts over time will give you clues as to others happy to help.

    Good luck with the 'journey'.

    Thank you for that. It is always a bit intimidating when you start looking into something like this. The sheer volume of avalible information is intimidating, especially as I have no way of telling how accurate and reliant it is. But I guess that this forums is a good place to start.
