Hello, newbie here

  1. Jan 26, 2008 #1
    I did not see an introductions forum or thread anywhere, so I guess it is alright to post a new thread. If this is not permitted, please feel free to delete the topic.

    I found this site looking at http://deferentialgeometry.org/ (as little as I understand it) and this looks pretty nice. It has been over ten years since I studied physics, and it would be kind of nice to get back into the swing of things.

    Hopefully I can learn a lot and maybe meet some nice folks along the way.

    Regards

    Hello albn. Welcome to PF! There isn't an introduction forum or thread so you're fine to post here. One can certainly learn a lot here and there are some very nice people as well which makes it all the better.

    Oh, and if you hear the sound of a fish traveling through air at high speed, then duck. :smile:

    Welcome to PF albn!!!

    You've come to the right place if you are interested in physics. We have a wonderful community here of helpful and friendly people.

    Make sure you stop by the new member fish thread and select your fish. We initiate all new members by slapping them with a fish. (don't ask)

    Welcome to PF, albn. Deferentialgeometry.org is Garrett Lisi's site. Lisi is working on an Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything (ESToE).

    One may find more on this matter in the Forum Beyond the Standard Model.

    Welcome aboard, Albn.
    Please don't be one of those dozens of people who have run like the wind after having been welcomed. This is a great place, but we're all a little weird. Stick around long enough to get used to it. :biggrin:

    I am lurking around to get a feel for the place. I do not want to ask the same question somebody else may have asked before.

    I may just jump in and ask anyway.

    Absolutely. I'm new here too -- you can tell by my greasy little herring welts. If you go back into the archives some of the folks have been here for years. Us newbies are bound to bring up subjects that have come up before.

    BTW, I'm here for reasons similar to yours. I majored in physics (years ago!), but I also studied chemistry. All my jobs have been mostly chemistry-related, and I miss discussions about physics.

    You're entitled to your opinion, but this was started by members and most members here in GD seem to like the sense of fun, friendship, and camaraderie. You certainly don't have to join in. :smile:

    Yeah, what she said...
    Albn, it's not always easy to find a previous post, even with the search function. Go ahead and ask. If it's been covered, a Mentor will point it out and link you to the previous discussilons.
