Hello, I'm in my mid-forties, and while I was once familiar with DOS, I'm relatively new to Windows. We got our first Windows pc around five years ago. I had been using my 1985 IBM PS2 Dos machine for word processing and home bookkeeping/taxes.

Windows and the internet opened up a whole new world! I spent many hours learning. I am here to increase my knowledge.

EDIT: I just had my first lesson here. The post is HUGE at font size 7. I'll try again with 2. It doesn't seem to show in the preview or as you're typing. I'm used to MSWord sizes. :thumbsup:

Don't worry, you will get the hang of the quirks of bulletin boards in no time, Holly. Welcome to this great user community!

Hello hollyshort welcome
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
