My name is Jerry and I'm 72 years old and started using a computer just 10 years ago.  I'm self taught which means what I have learned is from trial and error which can cause all kinds of problems that I have no idea how to fix.  Infact I'm sure I have problems that I'm not even aware of.  I signed up for an adult education class on  computers which was an insult to the students.  It was like I was in first grade where the teacher would have the class would repeat aloud different terms  or words relative to computers.  Then the typing exercise was the last straw before I walked out.  In joining this forum I'm hoping to pick some understanding about, well, everything!

Hello Jerry and welcome to Bleeping Computer.  :welcome:


Here's hoping (and believing) that Bleeping Computer will give you the chance to learn a lot more than you would've in that Adult Education Class and will, most likely, never ask you to repeat out loud anything you pick up along the way.  :lol:


See you in the Forums.

Every calculation based on experience elsewhere fails in New Mexico.
