Hi all
Kept finding good stuff on this site when troubleshooting so I figured I would join so that if I have something to contribute back a bit for what I got good here the karma would come into balance. I'm a retired submarine sailor and the extended family duty geek. I home build desktops for family friends and occasionally profit. I currently have Windows 7 home premium on my everyday desktop with Ubuntu and Opensuse on multiboot. This is an AMD machine with 9150e quad-core on an ECS A790GXM-A with 4gb DDR2 1066 mem. Right now I have 3 hard drives 1 for windows, 1 for linux and 1 for multimedia storage total is 1.64 tb. I use a basic Toshiba laptop for portable it has Vista home prem. on it. I don't know how much I can contribute. I have been working with computers since 1969 but much of the old knowledge is useless for modern digital stuff. Most of the useful current knowledge is from reading and doing. At one time I did home entertainment electronic repair but it has become mostly toss and replace lately.
