Hi there all you bleeping helpers.
I am a 64 year old white top and have three computers, one laptop out on loan, a Dell E520 with XP and a Dell Inspiron 1525 with an Intel dual core (i think 8200) Centrino processor inside with 4gb memory. I use my 'puters for family tree and for communicating, banking, news, sport and buying on-line. I started with a Vic20 and went on from there. I love the freedom of using computers and it gets me around the world. I retired some 10 years ago and have been on-line ever since!Some call me a sad old geezer for spending time on a computer but I don't care. I don't regard myself as an expert with computer systems but I have used '95, '98, XP and now Vista. Vista isn't too bad but I don't really understand the innards as much as XP. I suppose it's because you needed to know or else give up. I am not afraid to ask for help and only hope that the experts use simple language when pointing me in the right direction. I will respond to requests if I can but my expertise is more family tree oriented than Vista...... Olgiza
