My topic title is also my user name and confirms that as far as computers (and women) are concerned, I don't know nearly as much as I think I know.  I'm 68 and I have been around computers since 1982 or so when my employer began servicing IBM 8088 clones and Apple II computers for our customers who bought our training software.  My path to this site was via Gizmo's Freeware, another wonderful place to go for reliable information on computer issues  I don't think I will be making many posts here.  Instead I want to sponge up information to fill the many gaps in my computing knowledge base, to help me keep my business and family computers healthy and productive.

 Welcome, Mike.  I hear you loud and clear about computers and women!  :whistle: My theory is that computers are female.  Funny thing though, I can never find a woman to agree about that.  :bananas:

Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

Hi Mike :welcome:  to BC.


To find out the gender of your computer follow the instructions below:
1. Open your notepad

2. Type or copy paste: CreateObject(“SAPI.SpVoice”).Speak”I love you” (if you copy+paste the code, replace quotes by actual quotes on your keyboard)

3. Save as computer_sex.vbs

4. Run the file.
If you hear a male voice, you have a boy if woman’s, it’s a girl.

Turns out my computer is a female.  I have three daughters.  My youngest daughter has a girl rabbit and a girl cat.  So its just my boy dog and me defending the male's honour in our family.  And both the dawg and I have been 'fixed'...
