Hi all, my name is Charlie, I'm from New Zealand, and I'm officially a Beer Drinking A**hole! :thumbsup:

I'm a electrical technician, I'm 51, I've been messing with PC's at a medium skill level since a 286 was a hot machine! My first PC was an 80286 with a green screen, and I played games on the damn thing as much as I did work on it. My next PC was a red-hot Arche 386-SX/16 with (gasp!) 1Mb RAM. The RAM cost me $1,000, but I was the envy of the computer club.

I mess with multiple PCs regularly, I have three in my 'office' at home connected via LAN network, and I don't imagine I will ever buy a pre-built PC, I love building them and installing what *I* want on it. :trumpet:
If I didn't spend so much time gaming I might actually be moderately competent with these computery thingeries, but I work hard, so when I get home I like to relax and chill out with the BDA guys on TeamSpeak.

Cheers :flowers:

Hello Charlie and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Please take the time, to browse the New User Orientation forum, to help familiarize yourself with how the board works.

Also, don't forget to check out the Tutorials.
There's a lot of very useful information, in there.
