Hi ! I got to this forum , because of a computer problem. ( naturally) Found this by Google search. Looks like a one stop place , to solve problems.
Me : 56 , Truck driver. Ride a Harley. Like to build Harleys. And computers. Anything mechanical. Landlord. 8 tenants, right now. Biggest problem is never enough time. Like most people. Software is a problem.And updates ! Good Grief ! They don't install , or install incorrectly, or cause a blue screen of death ! My oldest computer , about 3 years old , I've downloaded & installed one Microsoft security update at least a dozen times. It never takes. My 1st computer was Win98SE. WHAT a problem ! Whew ! Found an old retired Army man , who is some kind of smart , and patient , who helped me with it. He had more patience than Job !
2nd biggest problem: I build a computer, sell it for what it cost to build it , and people won't( or can't) keep anti-virus ,anti-spyware updated,or download things they shouldn't, and I end up trying to solve their problem. I just build for relatives , and friends. Haven't built anything for over a year. I wish I had time to really learn the software part of this , it is interesting. If I ever retire , maybe I'll have time. Anyway, this is me.
