Hello everyone.  I'm in Orlando, FL, USA.  I ran across BC troubleshooting an issue recently and decided to join.  Lots of good stuff here!  I have been working in IT for 23 years now.  The last 13 years have been in information security roles.  I played Psychic Help Desk at work before remote viewing of the other person's screen was possible.  At home I have Windows Vista, Win 7, Win 8.1 and assorted flavors of Android  portable devices.  I have a small home network.  And a couple of Roku 3's.


I am SO old, I remember MS-DOS 3 and Windows 3.0.  I remember writing custom modem initialization strings for myself and friends so their oddball modems would let them dial into America Online.  My brother used to let me use his CompuServe account.   I used to know how to edit config.sys files.


Maybe I can help a bit.

Welcome, even though I am not all that old, I too remember dos days and windows 3.0, I used to do a little gaming from dos, nibbles, gorrilaz to name a few.

If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.
