Hi, I'm John from Gulfport Florida. I use to know a bit about computers. Now? Well, it comes and goes. I have a medical problem that causes brain inflammation. Know that old saying, "I've forgotten more that you'll ever know." Well, I'm still trying to figure out what's left and what to do with it.
I love computers. Even in my debilitate condition people still come to me for computer help. To give you an idea how long I've been messing with computers, one of my first books was "Learning assembly language : a guide for BASIC programmers". Assembly language was my first language though, BASIC was my second. There are a lot more computer languages lurk in here. Wrote a script in python the other day. Any day I can program is a good day for me. I also own a soldering iron with temperature control but doubt I'll ever be able to use if again or all those parts. Still know a what a capacitor is but no idea why I have so many. I'm just about ready for a new computer and a new purpose in life.
I've been lurking a while here and like what I've read. So, here I am.
Thanks you've all been a help already,
