I regret to inform you all that I have just discovered the single most complete, accurate, and up-to-date repository of computer knowledge known to exist. For that reason, I suggest that we all go home; we just can't compete.

I expect that Grinler will be along shortly to delete the whole website and take up basket weaving. I, for one, intend to take up stamp collecting.

Fare well!

I'm back. Just run two quick scans, 1.Super antispyware 2. Malwarebytes. Nothing found from the pop up. That was the first pop up I have seen on my computer in a long time. Some thing about finding lost friends.

Wow am I glad I saw that site.... I never knew the CPU was called a Central "Programming" Unit.

I also didn't know that compact flash was a R.A.M. Unit.

Just one more thing I needed to know on my way to computer troubleshooting. The next computer I work on I'm going to replace the hard drive with a "flash drive" and tell everyone that's more than enough space and more than fast enough for "anything" they'll ever do.

Thank-you Amazing Andrew...

After reading that web page I realize that I am a computer geek... instead of my normal status of computer clueless...

I certainly hope that's not a serious site, but I fear it may be... :thumbsup:

This site is sill a working progress, being my first website, its not perfect. Please email any queries, tips, etc Alternitavely, you can contact me via MSN messenger using this address. Thank you-Judy


OOPS. Ms. Judy forgot to include an email address or a send me mail link. No one can inform her of the hdd error.
I hope she finds out that the typical hard drive pictured is NOT the hard drive that goes into the system.

@Queen-Evie

And because she did not include any email or where to donate (how did I miss that the first time? guess I was laughing too hard...) I get to save my dollar. Guess she isn't going to make money on this endeavor.

Angelfire is safe, in and of itself. Being a free web host means that nefarious people sometimes use it for evil ends. The page under discussion here is not harmful (unless you read it, in which case I can't be held responsible for damages to your brain/faith in humanity! :thumbsup: )
