My name is greg, and after doing many a search to try and understand some problems I have I saw this board and it seemed good as people helping people.

I am 55 years old and basically have been araound and used computers from the start. I have taken the initiative when it was important to learn CaOBOL and Fortran years ago when it was important. But today there is so much going on I can see why you need to be a specialist in many a field.

I have ( at least what I think is the basic grasp as to the internals for call, registry to some esxtent and the heirchy of windows xp pro which I an using now.

I was enticed by the warez scene and boy did I spend a lot of time trying to fidx things,

Now I'm still usingthe original install with service pack 1, oodles of utilities and run DSL.

I hope to learn some more, and you guys and rate me as a beginner or the next level.

PS: I'm going to skip a spelling checker at this point early in the morn

I'll post particular problem when known to ya all.

As complex as computing has become, it is unlikely that any one person can be adept in every area involved. Here, members share their areas of expertise and experience in helping each other with problems or in just learning something about new areas.
