I had a virus recently, downloaded ComboFix from here and figured... What the heck... Let's join! (It's free, right?!?!)

The first computer program I wrote was on a teletype machine using punch tape (1975 or 76 as I recall) - uploaded to a mainframe computer in Los Angeles using an acoustic coupler... I've been supporting personal computers since the DOS days... (The first one I worked on was an IBM/XT with dual 360K single-sided floppies - cost the taxpayers 15K - it was tempested) Sold Tandy computers for a couple of years - back when there WERE Tandy computers... My first "civilian" job was supporting a Novell 2.15 network...

Still love it!

Once it gets in your blood, it doesn't ever quite go away.
Welcome to BC, and thanks for joining.
