New members - new names as well
« on: 12 July 2006, 16:28:14 »

OK so we now have over 40 members, and a few I don't recognise the names of.

Are they different names to before?

Are they lurkers from elsewhere?

Are they from Yahoo groups?

Tell us please?

i only got my mega two weeks ago so not had chance to lurk! Though having got valuable info from this sort of forum before the first thing I did was look for an Omega one. I found the "old site" last week and saw the link to this one last night. The membership here seems to be well informed and more than willing to share thier expertise, and even better it's exclusively omega orientated. BRILLIANT !!! what more can I say.

My ID is slightly different as I had to use 3 or 4 names to register

I would have been member no 7 as well!

I know about X25XE and V6man54deg but none others.

Hi Guys,

Just thought I'd say hello again, joined Vx on a couple of weeks ago, got lots of help and advice from some of you guys and thought what a great site, specially the omega section. I was then gobsmacked to see the carry on that caused a few guys to leave, thought one or two had a real raw deal from a few people.  :-[
But I wont comment because I dont know the personalities well enough.

Anyway as for me, the names Gary, Married to a great girl, 3 teenage kids and a golden retriever. Self employed the nickname may give you a clue to my trade, I hear it all the time as I arrive on a job, so thought I'd use it myself, not as barmy as a few names on here. I'm fairly new to forums, so please bare with me.

I've owned an Omega 2.0 Ltr Dti Diesel Estate GLS, S reg, for over 4 and a half years now, got it at about 85K and added another 100K. Been a great car. I've always been a Ford Man 'oops Sorry' in the past but this car has converted me, I'm afraid my car knowledge goes back to the late seventies, when I used to work on my Cortina Mk2 and 3.0 Ltr Capri. So sorry my input may be limited.

But if you need advice on your kitchen mounted gas guzzler, I'm more than happy to help, via pm's of course.

Great new site, looking forward to getting to know you guys.    :)

Welcome to the site, and thanks for signing up :)

We were all new at forums once, and our aim here is to warmly welcome everyone, not just computer experts, so post away. One of the mods will move, or in very rare cases, edit your posts if there is a problem.

I too used to work on my old cars when I was younger, then left it to mechanics (I have a very good local mechanic) for years. Much of that knowledge is still valid, as I found out once I decided I wanted to do most of the Omega work myself.  There are some very talented people on here who are more than willing to give advice on any problems you may come across :)
