Thanks! That's why we're here.
Ok, Ok, I'll tell you my story!
Back in 1996 I was stationed in Korea with very little money and very little to do. The company clerk and I found a couple of computer games downtown that we wanted to try.
So, we bought them and brought them back to base to play. Since the computers that the Army used then weren't 100% MS-DOS (they were Wangs) - there were some problems with the games. Which we, as good soldiers using our initiative, tried to fix.
Needless to say, we hosed the Wang! (pun intended ;) Luckily, the government had a US contractor nearby to fix it. When he came in, he not only fixed it - he also explained what we had done to mess it up!
Armed with this new knowledge, we were undaunted and continued our own private war to get the games running. This poor contractor came back many, many times - and each time he came, he patiently explained to us what we'd done wrong (and even how he fixed it).
I moved on from there, and have been haunting the internet since the early 1990's. And everywhere that I've gone - there've been people who have devoted their time (for free) to helping me learn about computers.
Well, after so many years, the knowledge finally did soak in a bit - so I'm back now, trying to help others as my repayment to those who helped me.
