Hi Bleeping Computer.com Forums Participants,
I am a retired community college small business center adult educator and charter school IT manager. I think I may be ADHD, especially around computers. My first computer was an Apple II Plus about 1979 and Visicalc was my first spreadsheet software. I had two 5 1/4" floppy drives and maybe 64K of memory. I was totally fascinated by computers. Unfortunately, I still can't comprehend what is going on inside a computer. I think of a computer like I do mechanical devices - like a car's engine - but the two are very different and the mechanical stuff comes to me intuitively and experientially - but not programming or computer operating system. Computer jargon goes over my head like a foreign language. I use to go to Microsoft technet workshops and would come out of those sessions feeling like I had been in a different country. I didn't understand a thing they were talking about. So,I tend to be in a constant state of churning. I have built two computers from scratch - Asus P4T433C motherboards, etc. I like the hands on. I'm still using XP pro SP3. I have wired and wireless computers and printers in a home network. I would like to learn how to overclock my computer, how to get greater network speed from my wireless computers, and things like that. I tried to download TweetDeck the other day but couldn't get it to do anything. That was strange. I have a lot of strange experiences with computers. It will be nice to have a kind, experienced, compassionate, non-judgmental source of help when strange things happen. It would be nice if I could help others from time to time. I just hope I can remember my way back to this website.

Hello and :welcome: 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.
