i'm here with a few malwares and a broken caps lock and shift key.
next month i will get a new keyboard, and your forums have helped immensely.
I am glad to find such a great site. I saw the contests and will enter them...love the idea of 'paying it forward'. I know a few people here who would love some new computer stuff. We live in a HUD subsidized apartment building in Charleston, SC. I ended up here after a bad auto accident many years ago in florida, and needed some medical expertise for my crumbled spine. It was worth the move. my team of drs and therapists have me walking again.
a friend taught me how to use a computer over the phone from FLA, while i was recuperating for one year, in a hospital bed at home. [before DNS servers, and internet service was free. so were long distance calls from a computer. no viral activity either. it was lots more fun then, but there is so much more content now. i did order my groceries from the local super market back then as well, and they are still providing that service to us.]
I know a little about maintaining a computer now, and help my friend who has no time to do it. I seem to have a lot of time on my hands, so I am learning all I can about this. It is really expensive to call a geek each and every time something happens..and I like the challenge.
I am on this computer almost every day - all day and night. i do some research and keep my working friends up to date with the real news...and I have an african grey parrot... I try to keep as busy as possible.
I look forward to meeting all of you.
