Okay so I created a user id and registered by following the link, then was told I should introduce myself. I'm currently a 44 y.o. homemaker with 3 kids. In my previous life, I was an aerospace engineer. I started playing around on the internet 20 years ago as part of my job (I don't think it was known as the internet yet). Since leaving the workplace, I have tried to keep up with technology but find myself often outpaced. That's when I turn to the ubergeeks (like the guys who run this site).

It's good vs evil out there and the evil launched an attack on my puter a couple weeks ago. I was able to stop them with the help of some of the info posted to this site. Now my goal is to speed up my pc and shop for a good laptop for my son entering jr high this year. I also hope to hone my computer skills in the hope of re-entering the workforce this fall.

Thanks to the moderators and volunteers running this site. You guys are outstanding.
