Mike in Carol Stream, Illinois (a far western suburb of Chicago)...
Although I stumbled across this site while looking for something else, it looks like a good place to hang out. Right now, I'm using a Dell Optiplex GX1 running Win 98, a Sony Vaio running Win XP Home and a Dell Dimension L600cx running Win ME -- all networked together. They all have major problems, and I would like to eventually get one of them running correctly so that I don't have to check e-mail on one of them, browse the Internet on another and run Excel on a third one. I had a nice HP Pavilion notebook that did everything, but it was one of a series of HP and Compaq units with defective motherboards. It died just after HP's extended warranty expired. 1200 dollars down the drain. Since I have gone from middle class to the working poor, I can't just buy something new. So, for now I'm doing what I can to work with what I have.

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.

—George Bernard Shaw
