Dear Colleagues

I arrived in this dialog because of a seriously sick computer and a very technically challenged owner. I know about simple computing, but the layers and layers of "stuff" that surrounds quite simple processes boggles the mind.

Hopefully with the help of the techy experts in this space I will make my computer well again.

I am curious where members are located. I just noted a recent member was from Australia. I am from the UK but located in New York. Over the past 30 years I have spent a lot of professional time in developing countries from Afghanistan to Zambia ... about 60 in all ... and am part of the Transparency and Accountability Network that aims to use ICT as a tool to improve performance in international socio-economic development. It is a challenge but ICT and good people can make a huge difference.

An interesting summary of Member's countries is found here:


Alas! Computing is becomming more and more complex each year, so much so that no general user can reasonably be expected to be knowledgeable in every area. The members of this great community are more than willing to help one another by sharing their areas of expertise and experience.
