Hello to All,

A little about myself.

I'm on the brink of full retirement and have been involved with computers and IT most of my adult life. My first computer was a Timex-Sinclair Z80 (remember those?) with 16K of RAM!(LOL) Once I had mastered Basic, that was it. I had chosen my career path. I'm a former Technical Director for a major cellular communications company, and most recently a VP of IT and Manufacturing for a medical manufacturing firm. I'm semi-retired now, but I still keep busy by building custom systems and networks for my own company. My personal system is an Athlon 64 X2 3800+, 2G RAM on an Asus A8N-SLI SE 2000MHz FSB mobo, nVidia GeForce 7600GS, twin 19" displays, and 1.25TB of SATA II storage. It shouldn't become a dinosaur for at least another 2 years!(LOL)

I'm here to learn more and continue to help others with viruses, malware and internet security. Hardware is hardware - "If it's broken, replace it!" - a perfect opportunity for a hardware upgrade! Bugs however, are electronic terrorism designed by those with evil intentions. Trojans and polymorphs, identity theft, where does it end? Anyway, here I am.

Oh, and my handle HogRyder? I've been riding motorcycles since I was 14 (a considerable time ago), and my current H-D is a custom '84 FXR. "Keep the sun at your back, the wind in your face, and the rubber side down!" AND "Let those who ride decide!"

So, here I am!

THE HogRyder

Hello HogRyder 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.
