Hi all I have just registered to the Site that I hope will be helpful for a Silver Surfer (for a few years now). I started with a new Sinclair 464 that I managed quite well ,but its a bit different now as those of you who had one will agree I think.
Today like most things today are all relying on SPEED so to do this you need a mind of Professor is it going to get us into a large problem in a few years down the road ? I think it will be just like the roads (which I spent my working life on) restrictions and the Super Highway is going the same route some time in the future is my bet.
Sorry I did not mean to be a critic and my motto is "enjoy it when you can" do,nt think it will effect me in any case.
What a way to say Hello I apologize, on to a better note as I said I am retired and live in North Shropshire (England) I have a lovely wife who is a bit older than me and a job to get about but we manage to do a pub run twice a week at least this time of year and always look to-wards our holidays in Dorset in the summer
My main interest is Gardening and touring with the Caravan then its the computer that I keep trying to add some program or another thats why i enrolled here as I often need help for something or another and I do not throw the towel in very easy
thats about it expect you may find it boring but I always like to have a idea of who I am talking to and where they are as its much more friendly.
will be back soon you bet!

A splendid idea, mate. I enjoyed your intro, I too like Gardening. Semi-retired, helping Mom get along in the Pacific Northwest...Washington State, USA. Roads are big... something to know & understand of themselves. Sinclair?. Heck, that was my first. Never bought a monitor for it, though. (I guess you'd understand where that left me). Tax Return time in April of 2003 found me beginning to enjoy an AMD AthlonXP my son built. Been at it, with gusto, ever since. :flowers: :trumpet: :thumbsup:
patiently patrolling, plenty of persisant pests n' problems ...

Just hearing the name Sinclair reminds me of my first computer-Timex Sinclair. The keyboard was filled with flat buttons that at times you had to push them hard for it to register...ok, maybe it was because I was wearing it out :flowers: Ah the good old days, where you can write a program with PEEK and POKE to crash it :thumbsup: .

Thanks for the memories of computers in the past, but we can all benefit from todays "monster machines". Maybe we didnt place the PEEK/POKE programs on our computers this time, we can all agree that we are all curious on the who did it, why, and how to repair it.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.
