Hello;
I've posted to a bulletin board years ago, but I'm rusty.
I am an experienced PC user, but not a techie. I can add and change components, and install and remove software, so long as it is straightforward, and uncomplicated.

I belong to a local PC users group, or "computer club", which is family oriented, with members all the way from the newbie to the graduate techie. :thumbsup:

I teach basic Windows functions to beginners, in 4-part workshops totalling 12 class hours monthly. :flowers:

I encounter my share of problems with my PC, but I have managed to keep it fired up and running for over 5 years without a killing crash!

I am retired, but have many interests, and little time to waste.

Welcome to this great user community.
I hope you will find some information here you did not already know.
If you have the spare time, I would certainly encourage you to become an active member, helping others having problems in your areas of experience and expertise.
Regards,
John

Thanks for the welcome.
I'm certainly willing to share; but I'm also in the learning mode!

Now, pray tell, how is it that you get your specs shown on bottom of your post; that's neat. I'm always interested in what others are running in normal mode.
I'm on a shop-built, much modified ( from the original) desktop running wxphe/PIV 1.7ghz with 512 k ram. Defender, Spybot S&D, Adaware, ZoneAlarm, and My eTrust EZ anti-virus, which is seldom rated, but the best!

Hi again,
The specs are added to your signature, to get to this....
Once you have logged in to BC click on 'MyControl Panel' or 'My Controls' from the main screen.
Then under 'Personal Profile' you will see..... 'Edit Signature' click this.
Then in the box named... 'Edit your Signature' just type in whatever specs you want. (if you want to change the colour of your text, you can do this by using bb code.)
Then when finished, just click on.... 'Update Signature'

If you need any help with the bb code, you can find a good tutorial by clicking on this link....BB Code application
Have fun. :thumbsup:
