Hi everyone. This is my first time posting on the site. I heard about this website from someone I know who is in the computer business. Obviously, I'm having problems with my computer but I'll get to that in a different forum. I really have to take my hat off to all of you who are computer savy, and understand this crazy world of computers. Generally speaking, I like to know how to operate the gadgets I use everyday. For some reason computers are above me. I guess lack of knowledge and patience would be my biggest hinderance, which brings me here. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi to you all before I get down to business. Also, call me a "brown-nose" if you want, but I think I should thank the administrators and volunteers of this site for what they do. Computers are a big business, and the fact that you donate your time and knowledge to helping people like me who just don't have the knowledge/means to help themselves is truly remarkable. So thank you!

Computing has continued to grow in complexity as we ask computers to do more and more varied tasks (just think, for example, of early computers with 16K memory compared with that of your own computer). The average person simply wants to USE a computer to accomplish some task, just as they want to use their automobile (another example of growing complexity) to get from point A to point B.

Add to this the colonisation of the internet, which includes the best and worse of human nature, and the average user can be at a loss when attempting to resolve difficulties. BC shows the best of humanity because its Members freely share their areas of expertise and experience in an effort to increase the common stock of knowledge as well as helping Others with their computer problems.

Welcome to BC, and thanks for joining.
