Welcome to the site and glad you could join us.
Lots of info on the site and while there's a lot of technical info on the site, technically-competent females are in the minority. Sounds like you're able to hold your own in the latter category.
BTW - Dale is an awesome name. Interesting that a father (Dale) would name his daughter (Dale), but that's one way to keep the name going
Again, welcome and don't be put-off by the leg-humpers. Look forward to your contributions.
