are you talking about women as eye candy or women who are as tech savvy as you are? Men in general have a hard time viewing a woman as a peer. I know in my industry (truck driving) capable women are often viewed with scorn. Granted, trucking ain't computers and such, but I can't see gender issues being much different elsewhere.

Default ATM we have one woman on this board

MS Dawn is an attractive uber-geek in her middle years.
Read what she offered http://www.jonnyguru.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21
I happen to like her, so please treat her well.

If there were more women on this forum, am I wrong to assume that we
would treat them "just like one of the guys"?
Being as they might be just as savvy if not more?
I have yet to meet one,but I won't deny their existence

Very correct. I believe providing a non-discriminatory and relaxed environment conducive to good discussion, would be the best way to draw women into contributing. A simple reminder to keep one's hormones in check would be a good start.

Well, here you go. Pics of my wife building her Opty 148 machine. And if anyone here plays GW, she'll be glad to play with. She pwns me in GW. Sadly, the ATOT forums are more of her forte`...

EDIT: Yes, the tech chcks do exist... You should have seen my wife's face when I mentioned getting her a dual core Opty for X-mas. It was classic.
