Happy to be here. I am a self taught computer and internet user struggling to become at least literate with regards to terminology.
I stumbled upon your site because a yahoo group - "Simply Computers" was helping me resolve an issue. The suggestion was made to google and one of the items google listed was a post to the message board here.
I look forward to gaining more insite into the computer world.
I am a 51 yr. old grandma of 6 (soon to be 7). I started my computer experience with an antique Macintosh. Of course, most of the real world uses regular (we used to call them IBM or Clones), now I guess Windows is the term?. Anyway I have finally obtained a "real" computer and am becoming pretty familiar with it.
I sure haven't screwed this one up as much as I did my apple performa LOL.
I watch grandkids all week and am also manager for our small apt. (7 units) complex here in Sacramento, CA. I am happily married for 15 years to "grandpa" , we have 2 dogs (shepherd and lab), `1 cat and 1 parakeet.
Nice to meet you and look forward to
