Have been working with and around computers since 1966 when a computer took up a whole room.  It was my high school co-op job to pull carbon out of invoice packs.


My next experience was in 1982 when I was working at Kmart in the cash room and they went online via modem to their home office for inventory.  I became one of the fastest ten-key operators they had.  18,000 ksm.  I'm a little slower than that now, but I got older.


For 15 years I worked for a municipal government.  As an Admin Assistant, I also was the hardware trouble shooter.  I took care of PC's, laptops, peripherals, printers, fax machines, cameras, projectors, etc.  I've retired from all that and just take care of family and friends now.


When there is a question I can't answer or a problem I can't solve, I come here.
