Hi everyone.  So I was looking for some tech help and found this place.  You all sound relatively not-like-bleeps and I saw that you guys have advice on a variety of topics instead of just being about computers/software, so I figured I'd go ahead and join.  I'm not tech-savvy as my username will point out, but I'm interested in all the grand things that I can learn (as a substitute for going to college since I have neither the resources nor the time required).  The internet has always been my favorite go-to resource for looking things up or learning more about something or other (at one point it was Haitian voodoo and that stuff gets really far into it).

 

Anyway, I guess I should tell you all a little about myself:

 

I am 26.

I am a (miserable) manager at a fast food joint which primarily sells chicken.  (Not KFC)

I have a second job at a retail place for tools with a stupidly complicated system for discounts and returns. (A miserable cashier)

I have worked on (and fixed) my own car (before I got a high tech one).

I haven't been out of the country (but eventually, I'd like to see all the beautiful places in the world, not just the icons/landmarks, but the stuff no one pays attention to).

I am an amateur artist/photographer/writer with inept and outdated equipment (although, I know I write well because my work was stolen and used and it pisses me off that I can't prove it).

I have insufficient skills in digital art and photo editing (although, I've gotten relatively good at video editing.  Not great you understand, but good.)

I know nearly nothing about code, but am curious about how to do it.

I know next to nothing about running/programming/anything else with software (and have suffered for it).

I know a thing or two about hardware and where everything goes and how to fix my keyboard and how to fix the buttons and where to put the RAM.

 

Mostly, I want to learn about stuff.  Lots of stuff.  Because the world is full of amazing things and I want to know about them.

Ah, yes, thanks ya'll.  I see I've made the mistake of putting the topic in the wrong forum, but hey, beginners bad luck.

 

I figure if I know more, I can become more, so I'll be on here kinda frequently.

Welcome! I have joined this forum not a very long time ago, and I must say that I'm impressed. It has very nice members, including the administrators and moderators, which on all the forums I have been a member were really rude, very easy to understand the explication of some things and what I like the best, no banning for no reason.

Ah, a warm welcome indeed.  Thank you for your suggestions.  I shall enlighten myself.  *adjusts monocle*  And on a serious note, I'm glad to have found a decent community of computer experts.  :love4u:
