Hello, all. I am new to this forum but not to personal computing. I have been involved with small computers most of my adult life, usually as a technician. I have had my hands in every generation of small computers from Apple I and Heathkit H89 through IBM XPs all the way through pentium family. I have used and mastered just about every personal computer operating system from CPM, HDOS and early Apple OS through MSDOS, Windows, Win95/98/98SE, WinNT, Win2k and now XP.

I got tired of the hassle of being a computer tech and now am a simple old dummy rent-a-cop (security guard). It doesn't pay nearly as well but the expectations are much lower.
