Welcome to BC, Mr. Dunham
I am also.
Thats why I am phawgg. As in: "not clear",
in particular regarding PCs running WindowsAnything.
Running quite a bit of what has been written for use with it.
Software of all kinds.
Being constantly updated.
While I have enjoyed some success over the course of my lifetime,
any of those having to do with the PC seem to be short-lived.
Inevitably, failure enters and my confidence
remains at about 5 on a scale of ten.
I'm beginning to think that its folly for a mere human to pretend he can master a machine.
The machine I dutifully apply my irrational emotions to is gettin' kinda "long in the tooth".
It hasn't failed from the hardware side of the coin yet, but I expect it will.
If for no other reason than a protest to what I do to it ...
or for continuing to deny it Linux to run.
In the pursuit of happiness, I've found that modest expenditures can sometimes help.
I often sell or trade stuff, too. Something having to do with "variety is the spice of life" concept.
Considering the nature of this site is to help novice computer users solve problems,
many of which could be resolved by simply unplugging them ...
Considering the exceedingly high price we've paid to play,
in time, money, and perhaps the risk to our sanity,
and the "never say die!" spirit of the battle,
as the case may be when malware creeps in to compete with the fundamentally unstable
and sometimes volatile nature of mixing hardware up with it's often "strange bedfellow"
the software ...
Considering that I've often read posted topics, or replies within them,
essentially threatening to throw the poor machines out the window ...
Perhaps we could make a deal.
Of course I'm not encouraging widescale advertisement of what you hinted at.
Heck, that'd be spamming under some scrutinization of the issue.
Just thinking about the options.
