Been lurking for awhile, thought I'd register.. just want to say thanks to everyone who helps out here. Put a lot of time and effort into this. :thumbsup:

Anyway, 28/M/USA-KY

Windows XP - SP3 on a old computer. Ancient really... but it works and that's all that matters. :flowers: Currently in the process of repainting my case, so if I'm a little more loopy than usual, I'll blame the paint fumes.. :D

I'm semi-helpful on some computer related issues (or maybe just less dangerous than the average user, whichever) so I'll try to pitch in with some completely random and barely useful hint every now and then. But I'll undoubtedly be asking more than answering though!

Anyway, nice to "meet" you all!

Hello and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Painting the case is certainly less expensive and troublesome as buying a new computer, especially if what you have works.

We should start a topic where everyone posts a picture of their computer set up... seriously. Maybe run a contest with a prize for the person who has kept a computer running the longest! (The prize could be... a new laptop... an donors?)

I am also running "Windows XP - SP3 on a old computer. Ancient really... but it works and that's all that matters." (Mines a Compac Presario 2100)

I don't have to repaint the case, but if I could find the WD-40 to get the filthy sticky gunk off from where I removed a few old stickers, she would look brandie-new.

I am also in KY. I am also dangerous with computers. (Though I am learning how to cover my butt)

Nice to meet you.

Love and Light,
