Ahhhh, the internet . . .
I'm very happy to have found bleepingcomputer and I hope to contribute in some ways, though I expect that my contributions will pale in comparison to the benefits: I've already gained some insights into questions that have bothered me so . . . (I'm a parrothead, btw);
My PC experience is long, (My first experience was on a Tandy and the first PC I owned was a Compaq 8086 machine with two! 5.25 inch floppy drives and 64k yes, that's kilo bytes of ram); my fingers still know the DOS command line vocabulary!
I presently take care of two Win XP machines, a Dell dim 4300s and a Gateway E4100, networked and connected to two TIVO boxes. All of it can be cranky and I have resolved to get the bugs out before the Christmas season this year.
