I am a 58 year old computer-dependent fairly literate user who is new to the forum process. Back in the day we called 'em "bulletin boards". Text-only and lots of complaining back and forth. Lately it seems I'm always getting error messages and strange behaviours from my computer. I'm building a new one (my first) which hopefully will be running in a few days. I hope.
Anyway - hello everyone.

Hello blanster and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Hello, blanster.
Welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Good luck, on the first build.
Just got my first build up, and running.
Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
If you have any questions/problems, just ask, in the System Building and Upgrading forum, and I'm sure someone will be able to help you out.

Well the "bulletin boards" are much easier and prettier now, and are certainly used by ever more people, but the content has not changed all that much, so you should feel at home.
