My real name is Alan.... but you can call me caet (to be pronoaunced "seat")

I am a mech engineer, 47 so I am old, and newly unemployed. My brother and several friends are programmers but I have been doing machine design instead. I have always tried to learn what I can on the computer tech side, but the IT guys at work seldom have the time for explanations.

Planning to retire to a second career as my wifes IT support and office manager: she's an MD and if she ever goes back to work we can stop living in poverty.

I like cycling and volley ball for hobbies, that and chasing our five kids around (15-2 years old)

reading the background now before I post my woes....

Thanks in advanced for the fun... maybe i'll learn something.

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
