I have visited bleeping computer several times, loved combifix, and decided to become a contributing member, I started in computers as a volunteer student intern at western electrics bell labs in '70. This was when the “bootstrap” programing (BIOS) was loaded with 16 toggle switches ( + an enter clear switch ) and 256 k of core memory and the CPU occupied two refrigerator sized panel racks. This was the early UNIX and development of ESS switching frames, tone dialing, quite an education. All about useless now, but surely gave an intimate understanding of the nuts and bolts of computing platforms.
Now, light years later in technology I'm still hooked UNIX and Linux are still my passion but one must be well versed in windows these days, no matter what so here I am, combating mal-ware, rogue virus gimmicks, all the windows maladies we all are currently dealing with.
Looking forward to learning and contributing, this could be a good time!
