Newbie To A.net

Tue Dec 26, 2006 7:47 am

Hi, folks. My name is Nik. You can call me either Nik or Nikolas (doesn't matter).

I've been a very adamant fan of A.net for the past while, and just today, my dad decided to give me a one-year membership to A.net.

I hope that I don't bore you with this post, and like I said in my topic header, you better get the 'cargo bay' pic ready. Ask any questions you wish to, and I'll be glad to answer them.

Thanks, and have a wonderful holiday

Nik/WestJetForLife
