I'm new, my name is Lou, and I'm a PC tech. Used to do sysadmin/consulting for DEC & Compaq on the big systems, got RIFed about 10 years ago, tried a teaching career unsuccessfully, re-invented myself as a PC tech by reading Mike Myer's A+ book & taking the CompTIA test. I'm now self-employed (company of 1), going out to folks' homes and helping them with their PCs. (Got to admit, the teaching experience really helps!) I joined BleepingComputer.com because I've always gotten quality answers here as a lurker, and now I've run across something so unusual I have to post it.
