Gee, it's hard to believe I cut my computing "teeth" on an IBM 32 and a Trash-80.

The 32 had a whopping 64k RAM and ("removable media") floppies that, sans exterior cover, would easily cover a dinner plate or a 150-or-so-gram Frisbee. Beyond sacrificing some great music in moments of dire need, the 80's cassette-tape-eating qualities are beyond description.

Today, my PDA/cell blows 'em away.

It just absolutely fries my brain to think about how I once got incredibly excited over a 5 (that's right, five) MB HDD. I was the first kid on my block to have one. Gosh, computing without constantly changing single or dual floppies was . . . well, it just couldn't have possibly gotten any better.

I can't really remember when I first found "Bleeping" but I've been very appreciative of it (actually, "it" would be the wonderful people who make it work) ever since that first time I stumbled upon it.

I've long stood in awe of those "Bleepers" who've had the expertise and often have been thankful beyond words for each having taken the time to key it all in so that yahoos like me can derive benefit.

Truly, though I know dozens of KBs and forums, bleepingcomputer is always my first stop and, very nearly as many times as I've "tuned in," my last.

Tonight, I was cruising the tutorials, enjoying the heck out of 'em and just wanted to say a sincere "Thank You!"
