Welcome all! I come to you guys new to the board but old on the computer scene. Thats right, like a lot of you, I have been bleeping at the computer since the early eighties. God bless those of you whom have earlier experiences!!

Born an raised in NYC, it all began for me with Pong... No, not the Atari 2400 cartridge, but its own console, needing to hook up in the back of the tv with flathead screwdriver and switch to channel 3 or 4...

Up to today, having gone through several computers, I am a professional in both supporting and fixing them and bleeping the hell out of them when for who knows why, they just don't want to cooperate.

So here I am, my first post here. I look forward to building part of this community hopefully in a positive direction as to prevent some of you going that extra step - and needing to head to Best Buy or pricewatch.com to update your broken hardware!

Happy Bleeping!



808
