[b]Just to say hello to all here at bleepingcomputer.[b]

I've been advised (hounded actually) to check in here and read the tutorials
and some forums to learn about computer security, so here I am.
They say - father knows best. Hes been watching for this I know.

Wheres the section for dumb questions? I dont see it yet - in the general section?
(I know, thats my first dumb question. Nevermind, Ill find it.)

(Hi Dad, I'm off to read tutorails)

Howdy Tom, good to see ya' found your way here.

Koan's no doubt prompted you about the website here,
but what the heck ... here is one way to play (learn).

From the Index (main page) just
"Take it from the top":
  • tab 1 HOME leading, breaking news & shortcuts.
  • tab 2 TUTORIALS admit it, you didn't know THAT!
  • tab 3 DISCUSSION hundreds & hundreds of FAQ's.
  • tab 4 COMPUPEDIA Better brush up on some of those terms.
  • tab 5 RESOURCES Where to go for safe & good stuff.
Left to right at the top of the page below those:
  • Bleepingcomputer.com home page
  • Discussion Rules and they are simple. Discussion rules!
  • Donate hey, this much concentration of resource ain't cheap.
  • Startup Database wonder about those processes running? Check 'em out.
  • Fun & Games Pool? Pacman? You name it, you can play it here.
  • Chat Live conversations, web based chat. Interesting stuff.
  • Help is the name of the game around here.
  • Members see the community, link to posts.
  • Search fast track to relevant information.
  • RSS News, News, and more News delivered to your door.
  • My Control Panel Avatars, Signatures, more links to particular topics like unanswered posts.
  • My Topics each time you post, there is the record to quick reference.
  • View New Posts Oh, boy. A little of everything. Changes daily.
  • New Personal Messages Hit that PM button and ya' might see this change.
  • My Assistant after all that, you might need an assistant.
  • Bleepingcomputer.com takes back to the main discussion page. Start all over.
I suggest clicking each and everyone of 'em.
Find your favorite one(s) and learn more.

Even then there is more to work with. :thumbsup:
patiently patrolling, plenty of persisant pests n' problems ...

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
