Good Morning - or - for you present or former Military personnel - - "ALCON"
As one of the newest members to this fine organization, I'd like to take a moment to quickly introduce myself. I am a retired soldier (combat vet) who, by the grace of God, been blessed with many wonderful and exciting skill sets. However, Computer literacy happens to NOT be one of them. To say that I am Technologically challenged is probably one of the biggest understatements ever made. To illistrate my point, let me just say that I am the kind of guy who never could quite learn how to program a VCR to tape a scheduled show and/or get rid of the flashing 12:00 on the screen. After spending years reading, researching and by hours and hours of trial and error attempts finally figured it out. As such, I walked around with my chest poked out absolutely proud of my ability to over come my inabilities only to wake up the next morning to the news that a new format was introduced to the market that replaced VHS by something called a CD. Huh, I wondered. How could a certificate of deposit replace a VHS tape?
I have many issues, errors and warnings on my Sony Vio lap top and would truly appreciate and and all help, guidance and support any of you can possibly provide. One thing is very certain. I have quickly learned that I can not, in confidence, rely on Sony or Microsoft Technical Support to provide mutually supporting sectors of fire (help) to defend against a pending counter attack by the enemy (over priced, substandard computer operating systems, software and hardware). Wfith that said, would any body like a hot cup of Joe while they help me get off the path of computer woe and onto the path of rightous learning and understanding?
v/r (Very Respectfully),
