My name is Gina, and you can probably figure out by my user name that I am from Pennsylvania! I've been online since 1997 and consider myself to be an intermediate user. I try to keep up with new computer technology, security, software, etc. by receiving several email newsletters from different sites. However, I am disabled with severe spine problems and have had 4 surgeries in the past 13 months which kept me from reading my newsletters the day they came as I used to (although I have saved them all, but some are probably too outdated to make reading them worthwhile). This is one reason I decided to become a member here. My primary computer is a Windows 7 laptop, but I also have an iPad. I haven't had a chance to look around the site much yet and don't know if there is a forum or different guides for tablets, but I feel like a dinosaur because years ago my friends all came to me for computer help and now I'm having a problem getting used to the newer devices (I also don't have a smartphone)! So now I'm the one who needs help catching up with the latest technologies, how to use them, and how to keep safe using them!
I look forward to meeting people here and catching up on newer computer technologies, fixes, etc., and hope I may be able to contribute by helping out a few people I came across upon who wrote that they just recently got their first computer.
