Hey all,
Just dropped in to say hi- Hi!
Jumped into the computer world and internet...
I closed my eyes, held my nose, and jumped. Didn't even look for depth or mud or worms or eeeek.
Now I'm trying to catch up on info - how to and how to prevent.
Heard about this place from pitstop forums ( I highly recommend and I saw some folks I recognize )
If you have any reliable links to simple to understand info for simple folk...
well, that's me :flowers:
Let's see I can copy and paste and I know a little about "safe surfing" and virus prevention and I'm off now to see what good articles are here .

Welcome to BC!
The Tutorials are a great place to learn, as are the more specialised and advanced forum threads.
