Greetings to all! My name is Seth K. Pyle. I am a 36 year old Maintenance Technician in the upstate of South Carolina. Originally, like many others, I found bleepingcomputer.com in a search to deal with a virus problem. While searching the forum, I realized that this website is about so much more than malware removal.
I am very mechanically and electrically inclined. Computer saavy...not so much. I know enough to be dangerous, but that is about it. I spend most of my computer time managing photos/tech manuals/information for my gearhead hobbies, and 99% of my internet time is devoted to the neverending search for information/tech manuals/parts for my hobbies. Granted, the chase for an elusive manual is usually what gets me into trouble...
I am hear to learn as I go about how to deal with computers, how to become more comfortable and proficient. At my home, I have 3 computers. One in the house, that was built by a computer buddy, an ancient (2003) HP Pavillion 245 in my workshop, and my wife's relatively new HP laptop. The shop and home computers are connected to the router via cables, while the laptop is wireless. I have a simple network set up to share files between the shop and house computers, and am working on doing the same for my wife's laptop.
I learn best by researching and doing, and that is what I plan on doing at this site. Each time I have a question, I will search through this site and go from there.
Thanks, and very glad to be here!
Seth K. Pyle
