    Hello @mmartinez - thank you for joining us all. I think you'll find this a very friendly & supportive community. Please have a look around to see the different discussions, & do join in with any of interest. A good place to start is also our 'Coffee lounge,' where we chat about anything from our pets to our hobbies & interests; some of us also enjoy various word games that you can find there.
    Do let us know if you have any questions about the forum, or if we can help in any way; there's usually someone who can help.  :)
