Maybe this post is best off in the board line but many of us have interests in nature outside of herps and as we know this is THE place to be for good herp discussions on the net. Well a post in the board line pertaining to an arachnid or arthropod forum got me thinking...

What other nature-oriented forums do you frequent (please keep this nature oriented)? Please provide a link also, as I think it would be cool to have a post with links to some of the best nature forums out there.

Personally, I also post over on a site about native fishes - NANFA (North American Native Fish Association)

http://forum.nanfa.org/

Andy

p.s. Still looking for that mammaling forum!

I can waste a lot of time there just reading, even though I follow the same trading plan all the time. But if you're new to foreign currency trading, you can learn A TON.

Arachnoboards.com is my home turf. As my personal home collection is filled with invertebrates, I have very few scaly friends. But I still love herps and I love catching them in the wilds, now I just let them go afterward.

what was your handle? I'm mostly on TR (as paulWTAMU) but don't follow tech as much as I did a few years ago. I don't game as much, and I no longer sell electronics so it's not as relevant to me. But I'd be lying if I said the advancements in mobile technology don't excite me.

I'm resedit there.
I use to post a lot in the Linux forum and sometimes in Battlefront. I still do occasionally, but flame wars over software vendors just don't have the attraction they use to.

Mac vs Windows vs Linux is still going strong there and it's part of the reason I don't post as much there. :? Computers are tools, not my personal identity.

Well put, and one could easily replace "computers" with any number of other objects/ideas.

That's really my biggest complaint against Apple--they try to make their brand a lifestyle. (And they charge too much for their products).

my biggest complaint is that the iPad doesn't have handwriting recognition; that'd have made it my perfect portable device :cry: As is I'm still without a tablet of any sort. I can accept compromise at some price points but not at 500+ dollars. And the tablets that have what I want are too damn pricey (1,000+).

I use to be a bona-fide "Maclot" - right now, the only piece of Apple hardware I still use is an Apple Pro keyboard from 2000. When it finally dies, I'll have look for an NOS replacement because it is the nicest keyboard I have ever used. I'm not a fan of their newer keyboards.

I started using Linux in 1998 though. April 1st I bought a shiny new 233MHz G3 with 32MB of RAM. Damn thing crashed all the time. It was suggested I buy memory, so I saved up and bought 64 MB. It helped but the damn think still crashed. Then I installed MKLinux DR3 on a 2GB scsi disk - stable as hell, I finally felt like I had gotten my moneys worth for the hardware. I then got a job administering Red Hat systems (MKLinux was basically a port of Red Hat 5 to the Mach Mikrokernel running on PPC) and it soon became my primary OS and has been my only OS for years.

I like OS X and would buy a Mac again ... if Apple would release a mid-level tower. The low end macs are too low end for me and the high end macs are more machine than I need at a higher price than I want to spend. So I just build my own mid-level machines and slap Linux on 'em.

iPad looks tempting, though, it really does.
But - I had an iPod and the only reason it isn't functional right now is because the internal battery stopped taking a charge. How stupid can they be to produce a product that doesn't have a user serviceable battery?

Yes, there are third party kits, but I just said screw it. All my music is ripped to flac anyway, and is mp3 for portable, thus I am not locked in - so I just simply no longer consider an iPod to be an option.

Too bad, otherwise the iPod was a nice design.

There was really only one other place I was posting, but I had major issues with some of the prominent figures there and rarely go back anymore.

Hey Andy, it's good to see another native fish nut here.

I've been a longtime follower of the NANFA forum, but I recently got bit by the snake bug again, so I've been splitting my time between fish collecting and herping this summer. As a matter of fact, this is my first post here. Wooh!

Well this post didn't come out quite as I had intended.

Quote:
The title doesn't specify nature forums.

I guess this said it all. Why read the post when you can just read the title.

Anyways, thanks to those who suggested nature oriented forums.

Kanus, good to see you on here. I think there is a few crossovers between NANFA and here and alot more potential crossovers.

Andy

Glad there are some fish nerds here :lol:

back in the early and mid 90's I was huge into native freshwater fish. It was an added bonus to field herping. I kept a freshwater tank with a variety of species.

I was a member of the NANFA boards but there was very little activity 5 or so years ago.
