Hi I'm Alan

New to this, got here by being invited to Discord, which I'm having trouble understanding.

I worked as a PC & Network (Novel NetWare) Technician, using MS-DOS and early Windows (upto XP) until 1997, when I retired for personal reasons.

I've recently become interested in IT again mainly through using my Android Smartphones.

Not sure if I belong here, but here I am. So...


Cheers, Hopefully I'll be back again. Thanks for accepting me here.

Welcome aboard.

Welcome to the Atlassian community, Alan. Discord is a social network, “the only free and secure voice, video, and text app designed for gamers that works on your desktop and phone.” Read more about it: What is Discord? Social Network and Chat for Gamers?

Here, at we are focused on Atlassian products.

Make sense?

Ahh OS/2 - I recall working on a phone system in 2006 that ran on an OS/2 machine. The uptime was truly insane! I have a feeling that if the fans in that machine haven't quit working, it's probably still running today.

Welcome to the Community @Alan Bond. I'm sure a Bond has a natural place in more or less any kind of Community!

I can relate Alan, as I too started around that time and it was with Novell Netware 5, MS DOS and actually Win 3.1, so there's been many changes since those recent 'days of old' but hang in there, don't be too hard on yourself, maintain your rest and it won't be long, you'll find yourself having all kinds of epiphanies.

As been stated and noted, the community is extremely helpful and encouraging.

You're not alone.

Take advantage of it.

Best wishes to ya!
