Hello All!

I have been repairing computers for family and friends since 2000 and professionally since 2003. I have a BS in Computer Science and Mathematics, A+, Mac Certified (10.3) and currently studying for Mac 10.6 certification exam. I like PCs and Macs and dabble some in Linux (Fedora, Ubuntu, Mint). I have used these forums plenty of times before and thought it is high time to register. So have fun and may the Force be with you.

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.

I am from Ohio also. ntmu

I have been working on computers for years. Got my first C 64 sometime early in the 80's. lol. It took about 45 minites to load my race
car game with the tape drive. I would get home from work, and start loading the game. While it was loading I would go to the store
or something. Maybe grab a burger. I had plenty of time.

Shortly after that I moved into the real world and got a 386! I was really smoking then! I had Windows 3.1. Man was that a mess.
I have had every cosumer edition of Windows since. I am still stuck on XP Pro. I need a better PC, and the money to get it. But I hope
to get one soon.

I played alot with Q Basic..wrote a program to print addresses on envelopes, and a couple other things I cant even remember. I loved
Q Basic. I did a lot of upgrades and repair on pc's for familiy and friends. I really enjoy working on them. I have built 3 of them from spare parts found while out junking. Its amazing what people throw away.

I love reading tech pages. And working out my own problems. That is why I joined this site. I have been looking at it for months, and
finaly decided to sign up

Nice to meet you Andy
