<moved to this new forum as seems more relevant here - admin>

This is not ancient Egyptian specific, but I would like to know a little bit more about the members who post here, so would appreciate replies to this thread. No need to use the below format as a template, some people prefer more privacy.

Name: Murphyz (real name Michael Murphy, but have used murphyz online for last 4 years or so.)
Age: 24
Avatar: Also used for the last 4 years. The image is from an artist called Britt Martin who kindly gave me permission to use it.
Interests: Ancient Egypt, Books, Web Design, Riddles
Main ancient Egyptian interests: Pyramids, Mythology, 10 Plagues.
Found this site: Google search for "ancient egypt phpbb" after my regular forum has disappeared.
Other: I own several websites and am curently developing a few more, my main work in progress just now is a website on Ancient Egypt and will be followed by a Chicken recipes website.

And you?

Enthusiasm is the greatest source for learning.

I am also self taught, and still learning, with ancient Egypt topics - and I find discussion to be one of the best ways to learn. What better than to find a question that interests you and then research it until you know the answer?

And age is also no question. I found the years between 15 and 20 the best to learn and remember information with - since then my memory seems to have gone downhill. Fill it with things that you are interested in before it's too late Very Happy
