I have been coming here for, not really sure, a while. My first very own computer ran windows 95 and had a 14.4 modem, which was very fast to me, but painfully slow to the human condition. I had to lecture friends who sent 1.7 meg BMPs. They thought I was a geek for understanding JPG. I thought they were a tad slow for permanently losing file locations, and missing the point of drop down menus.

I ran my puter through the Millennial without a firewall or anti-virus and visited every single website and tried any other form of telecommunication on the net (well, a lot of them then). I played muds, and still do. Somebody did steal my identity once back when, but since I mostly have nothing important to do and am typing this with a song in my heart, they probably gave up trying to prosper on my pathetic credentials. I got a firewall after slightly embarrassing personal information appeared (parenthetically) in a local newspaper forum. Later, I found my first virus and came to this site to learn about removing those, etc.

I learned algebra to further my gaming, and to code, at least the logic of code, and pointless game languages. So I am a geek I suspect, just not one of those well paid ones. (I did not rightfully pass algebra in high school, as my sister was dating my small town math teacher)

I know a lot about plants. Feel free to direct plant questions to my mailbox.

Presently, all I am doing is stripping Hewlett Packard from my Windows XP, and pursuing a new, higher level of security. I am not all that good, just seems fun.

Hey, everyone, Hi and I hope your weather is the best!

Welcome to BC!
You forgot to include a reference to the great white whale.
Regards,
