I'm a huge fan of the site and forums here. I'm such a big fan that I decided to finally join a forum, rather than just read them and make great replies in my head. Also I need to add that when it comes to fighting malware and such, bleepingcomputer is awesome.
I ended up finding this place since I have been off work on the sick and using the site to help me in fixing home tech problems for family and friends. And boy have I used it. Last time I had any real technical knowledge of computers and software windows xp was only just in full swing. I learned c++ and spent way too many nights on irc only to end up going into construction trade. Over 10 years of full time work and starting and growing my family I was no more than a system user. Capable of little more than streaming tv and occasionally playing cs.
Thank you for helping me get back in touch with my inner nerd.
