I am in my middle 70s and was made redundant from a job in Human Resource Management in 1993 just as I was starting to use computers so I missed out on being able to pick the brains of the IT department.
I知 married with five children, live in a small village near Oxford England and spend a lot of time getting myself out of problems with my computer. When I知 not doing that I go fishing and shoot black powder revolver and other weapons on a nearby range.
I am in the middle of writing a few words on my boyhood for my grand children and I have to say that I give thanks every day for the Spell Check. I find computer technology fascinating and have managed to learn to build slide shows with captions and create videos but little things like forgetting how to use my colour printer because I have not used it for a month or so bug me.
I have one little problem which I have been trying to solve for a week on a number of forums and then someone on the Computer Active forum sugested trying here and that is what I am going to do.

Well I find that all quite interesting. Welcome to our community !!
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
