Hi Everybody
I have just registered with your site because it looks friendly and informative. I'm not a newbie but certainly have lots to learn.
I just turned 40 (wasn't as bad as I thought!) I live in a smallish mining town where I would love to learn more to do with computers but nothing on offer.
Ah well.....lets see what happens.....Love this smiley...have to use it....no real reason. :thumbsup:

Thank you both for the warm welcome. :thumbsup:

Starbuck I love the pic of the Firefox eating Internet Explorer. That' just brilliant. I've been using Firefox for years...it's the best thing since sliced bread.

See you both round the forums...I have a couple of issues (nothing urgent) that I'd like to rectify. One was solved yesterday by reading through various forums.

Thanks to the power of the Internet, no one need be isolated, and a world of knowledge lies literally on your keyboard. BC provides a lot of information, and of course help when you have a special problem.
Welcome to this great user community!
Regards,
John

Thanks John...I can't understand why so many people don't use their computer for more than just the odd email. It's a useful tool and without it I would have lost my mind over the last few years that we have lived here. We came from a larger town and took for granted the many services available.
I don't get to 'play' very often as motherhood, work and domestic duties take up so much of my time, but I plan to get back to my video editing (is almost a year since I last attacked it) and will probably have to start from scratch!!! I encountered problems every step of the way and felt enormous satisfaction when I scoured the net and eventually solved the issue. In addition it's nice to meet people from other countries. The world is definitely getting smaller.
Ah well, time to get ready for son's soccer practice...no playing on the net for me today!
