I'm new to this forum but I have no lack of experience.  I started using computers in grade 10 (about 1974) programming in Fortran (Watfiv actually) on a Wang computer and working with Commodore PET.  I've been a mainframe programmer (Cobol, clists, assembler), IT Change Manager & Disaster Recovery Coordinator (all platforms) and a server admin.  In my spare time, I've become a  "Help desk" to friends and family - everything from replacing hardware components to recovering data to software installation and training. 


I've found this forum to be very helpful in the past and decided that it's time to become a member. :thumbup2:
