Hi, I decided to register because I love messing with my computer (though I often wish it would JUST WORK). I got my first computer in 2000 and broke it by deleting a lot of the Windows 98 files (apparently, needed! :grinner: ) I had to make it work again, learned the value of rescue disks. But that's the kind of person I am .... I like to understand things.


I won't pretend I "understand" anything about even my own computer in depth ... and that's the reason I finally registered. I have a million questions and most of the time, I have a difficult time finding some of the answers. I've often wished I knew a group locally and could learn that way, but haven't found that (yet). Reading here, using some of the programs in the downloads section and reading some of the blogs ... I respect that there is a lot of knowledge here and appreciate that there are people willing to help others. I've been able to do that in areas of my life and sometimes in small ways relating to computers. So I'm hoping to learn more and eventually, be able to contribute to help other people.

Welcome to BC !


Experimenting can be fun, and is certainly one way to learn, but always make a back up of your data at least before you start fooling around with the system. And if you do dig a hole you can't get out of you can always ask for help here. Just read the forum rules and guidance before you start posting.
