A big, huge, heaping, massive, gargantuan, air-water-nitrogen cooled, overclocked and pristinely cable-managed welcome to Tom’s Hardware!

We're incredibly glad to have you with us, and we hope you'll enjoy your visit to the largest hardware community for tech support questions and answers, product recommendations, and tutorials! To help get us all better acquainted with one another, I've set up this introductions thread so that we can get to know each other a bit more. :)

If you've just registered on the site, please take a moment to introduce yourself and tell us a quick thing or two about you. If you've been with us as a long-time veteran of Tom’s Hardware (or its sister site, Tom’s Guide), we'd also encourage you to re-up on your intro for those who might be lurking about.

To start, I'm jpishgar, Community Director here at Tom's. I've been a community goober in game development and tech communities for well over a decade and a half. Like many of our experts here, I learned how to build my own PC in order to play the latest games and squeeze every last drop of power from my rig.

Little Known Fact About Me: I can flawlessly sing "Nations of the World" by Yakko from Animaniacs. Try me.

Tell us a little bit about yourself, and do toss in a little known fact about you! :)

-JP

I'm Jon, ex bassist for some people. I been reading stuff here at Toms forever, like ya. Seems like 17 or 18 years now. I like helping people out when I can in the forums and such, and read lots to get better every day. I like AMD. but I'm not into the fanatical anything, if something is good, I'ma use it, looking for the best gaming experience. Still like the old games. When I heard they were remaking Syndicate, I nearly lost it, I loved that old Bullfrog game. If you know what I'm talking about, we can be friends.

Little known fact, I help run the worlds largest Banded Weasel retreat in FL. Oh ya, and in the early 90s I dated Dot from Animaniacs.

Hi I'm Kat. Ive been interested in learning about different phones and their issues. Mainly because either I've messed them up or I get one that already is. Right now my main issue is my LG Stylo 2 through Boost. I was told before I bought it it was unlocked. But it isn't.

A hearty high ho and away to one and all. A year into retirement after dodging RIFs for 16 years. Running into issues on a 5 year old system and taking my first shaky steps in the DIY world and realizing how out-of-date I am to current PC tech.

Greetings. My name's Axel, and I'm a 16 years old boy who loves art and video games. I'm not the most social person in the world, especially considering how "socializing" isn't my best skill. But I don't mind having a nice conversation with people... Sometimes.

Fun Fact: I can play the flute. Which flute? I... Don't know what it's specifically called, but I can play it... With one of my nostrils! Betcha can't do that, hm?

Hello,
I live in Dallas, Texas, retired from a Semiconductor company and now enjoying my free time.
The reason I'm joining your site is to be aware of what's avilble on electronic devices like computers, phone and home security. I just bought a Samsung S8 plus phone and one of the issues I found is that the box didn't have the users guide. I'm looking for one. Hoping you or another subscriber will kindly tell me where to find it

Thanks for accepting me in your site and also thanks in advance to all the subscribers who will provide avise on new products and help on any technical questions I may have in the near future.

Mauricio

You should be able to download the user guide directly from Samsung's support site:

http://www.samsung.com/us/support/mobile/phones/all-other-phones

Or you can use that site to do an online chat with them.
