After two or three weeks of lurking and absorbing the knowledge in BC, it's time
to create my own account and introduce myself. I've been guiding my brother
through here (see my profile), but thankfully do not need help with my PC.

Sadly I doubt I am skilled enough to offer much help, outside of telling newbies
to always enable their firewall, update anti-virus and antispyware programs
and always run windows update. My background is Unix and only use PCs for
leisure - sadly they are far too risky for serious or mission critical work.
What else? I'm definitely oldschool: prefer command scripts, cygwin, xemacs, plain-vanilla ASCII, lean-and-mean programming, and avoiding bloat.
I fear I will probably take more from BC than I can give, but BC has been very useful
in teaching me how to avoid the common pitfalls, and how to help others.
In conclusion, BC is a great asset to all :thumbsup:

Thanks for the compliment, and thanks also for joining this great user community. Having some experience in a mainframe shop, I agree with you.

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
