Well, I have to admit that I have been to bleeping computer many times in past years. But it was mainly while I was searching for a solution, and never bother to join or post. However, the HP sweepstakes stopped me in my tacks, and I slowed down enough to finally join (joining being a prerequisite to enter the sweepstake was a big factor too
I wrote my first program in 1976, remember when the Commodore 64 was first realeased, Atari was hot and Apple was not, etc... So I have been around the block for awhile.
In my efforts to avoid recreating the wheel in researching computer problems, my visits here have always been informative. I will continue to drop by, maybe on a more regular basis now, as I have more time on my hands.
