I just posted my first problem question on the forum. I am a reasonably competent pc user, but no geek - got my first home pc in 1986. It used DOS 2.XX, had a whopping 10 meg hard drive, 5" floppy, and a monochrome monitor. Anyone here go back that far? It was kind of fun back then because I could tailer my start up page by creating my own batch files. No pictures, no mouse; and the closest thing to graphics was the ability to draw lines. Boy, have the times changed. I have evolved (or is it devolved?) from having full control over the pc and it's software to the feeling of little control. Once Windows arrived I felt like I was along for the ride. And still do.
Just in case you have not figured it out I am a retiree and closer to 70 than 60 yrs old. Seems I frequently have pc-type questions that need answering, so I plan to be posting here often.
Guess I better get back to work on my Commodore 64 - to see if I can run Windows 7 on it (just kidding!!!)
