    Hello Everyone,

    Well, I live in China but I'm from the USA. I have worked and lived in China going on 11 years. I have always had FWT here in China and am ready for my first SWT. That's how I came across this web site. So, if you all can bare with me on questions and the like, your help will be appreciated.

    Cheers,

    David

    Thanks

    Hi, pleased to meet you.

    A very good start, I plan on reading many of the post here on the site first before I start with any questions. I feel I can find all I need already without bothering everyone with the same questions over and over again. So, thanks for the links.

    David
