I have been working with computers since the early 70s when we had the reel to reel big hunking IBM computers.  Then of course I grew up with the personal computer in the mid 80s.

Had pretty much every windows availabe except Vista.  Even the dreaded ME.  Now I just graduated to Win 8 Pro and my husband has Win 8.1.  Both HP computers.  We still have a Win 7 ThinkPad, my laptop and two XP computers which are SCSI computers.

I will be 70 the end of the year and my husband just turned 74.  He used to build the computers and I was responsible for the software.

I do like Win 8 but I found quite a few quirks with it.  One being that you can't readily delete network computers showing on your network when you change the name of the computer or the workgroup.  I did find a work around, but deleting a network computer can't be done by just hitting the delete button.....really????

My husband and I are both retired and moved from CA to Colorado in 2001.  Living here is great. 

That is about it for me, other than that I still love working with computers.

goldcup, Welcome to BC Forums! :)


Your computer experience may prove to be helpful to many here, looking forward to seeing your participation. Being that you enjoy working on computers, you should fit in here nicely.


The ones whom I know from CO speaks highly of the region........has likely been a refreshing change from the fast paced CA lifestyle.



Performing full disc images weekly and keeping important data off of the 'C' drive as generated can be the best defence against Malware/Ransomware attacks, as well as a wide range of other issues.
