Hello everybody, I just found this place and thought I'd check her out. I got myself a name, so now I guess I'm part of your posse and you all are my computer homeys. So I have this inclination to resist anything I feel is "forcing me to change" or that is "what everybody is doing these days" and have held out as long as possible against sucmbing to things like: computers,dvd players, cell phones, digital cameras etc. Consequently I don't know ding-dittly-ding-dittly-ding-dang-dong about anything computer related. I have always been a nerd, I just never crossed the divide into "computer nerd" but I love and adore nerds of shapes and sizes. My name, well I just made it up right now and thought it was fitting. I was going to put getbent and thought "why do I always lean towards being insulting" and then I figured it must be because at some point I got bent, or maybe it's a birth defect. (Both of my parents were weird at the time of my conception) Ayway if you notice anyone asking real retard questions about thier PC that'll probably be me. ( I can't hear ya laugh so go right ahead) . Later:)

Love your sense of humor "gotbent".

Welcome to Bleeping Computer forums.

I think you'll find a crowd here of similarly bent (in a few instances) individuals.

Take what you need from the forums and tutorials, etc.,
and give back such as you are able to others.

Just remember that everyone here began knowing next to nothing about computers, and so they can remember how confusing computing can be when they read your questions. "Nerds" were not born full-grown from the head of Athena.

:thumbsup: to BC! gotbent.
We won't laugh, we all started somewhere as well. We didn't become smart over night with computers.

Good Luck,
