  2. Hi everyone

    Well this is my first ever post on the internet.
    Have been glued to this website for the past 2 days. Had got myself registered long back but never had the time or knew the value of the data available on this website.
    Couple of days back i had some free time, so i logged in to check this website and that’s it, i haven moved out since then.
    I have been crazy about moving machines from childhood days, so its naturally inevitable that i enjoy every single post and bet my contributions will be worth reading.
    It is usually a great feeling to have just one like minded person in a new crowd you enter, but here it is truly unbelievable to have soo many people under the forum discussing awesome stuff.
    Missed soo much of time. Tracing back here from its start and updating my knowledge on it…
    Lots to read and catch up, lots to post. Lemme get started..

    Look forward to ‘meeting’ you all, Dean from teen make money website!
