Howdy folks!

New guy here hoping to help out when I can. I have been a part of PCWorld for just over 5 years. But it seems they decided to kill of their forums, and I am in need of a new home.

 

I hope I can bring some useful experience with me, as well as learn plenty while here.

Hi Everyone,

 

It's good to be here.  I am interested in helping people solve simple computer problems and in advocating the ability to troubleshoot to the average computer user.  I feel that not every problem should require an expert and people should be empowered by sites, like this one, to reach out to others and find solutions for themselves.

 

So good to be here!

Thank you all for a warm welcome!

 

Smax, you are absolutely right. Hopefully we will see more people come over.

Hey wj, count me in. 

I too am a refuge from the near-dead PCWorld forums, which I will certainly miss.  This looks like a nice place to land.

Welcome to all the PCWorld members. Sad to hear about the demise of their forums, but definitely glad to have you all here!
