I know just enough about my computer to be a real danger to it. I've had my Dell/Windows XP for about a year and a half and have just ordered a Laptop. I am so excited cause it will give me freedom to sit somewhere else :thumbsup: and it has a DVD player in it...which we don't have.

Mostly I have learned from trial and error and have done a little reading of the techncial stuff....as a last resort! With my laptop due to come in about a week, I'd like to learn how to clear up some irritations/problems with my computer understanding before it gets here.

I'm a boring computer user. I like to do Bible Studies on it, I'm a news-aholic, I love looking at the photography sites, I rarely do games....mostly l like to read, read, read...just not how to do my computer!

I never call it a "bleeping" computer cause I just love it! But when I click something, I want it to work! :flowers:

Computers and the internet have opened the world of knowledge (and mis-knowledge as well) to a huge audience, and the significance of this is just beginning to be felt. One small part of this world is computer knowledge at places like BC.

Hi all,

A recommended tutorial brought me to this site and I like what I see - so had to join. After all... have a computer - have a problem. I'm looking forward to spending some time here learning and sharing a thing or two.
