Hello everyone. I am sitting here typing this while my wife is gaming, we do seem to have fun around here.
I highly recommend a geek for a wife, it can be alot of fun. ;) well let me start with how I found this place and ended up typing this. I am having computer issues, so I posted my troubles to the forums at www.leoville.com and they gave me some advice and one of the things that I was asked to do was run a toll caled HiJackThis, and was told to post the log file on this site, so here I am. I know I can not post it here in this forum so that will come later. More about me, hmmmm....lets see.....well I guess to sum me up I am a geek, gearhead, and audiophile all rolled into one package. I enjoy computers, gaming, music, drag racing, NASCAR, and all sorts of good stuff. Oh, did I mention that I am legally blind? Thats right I am visually impaired, I can see but use large print, lighted keyboard, am 6 inches from a 19 inch CR, you know...all that fun stuff.
Anywho I certainly do not claim to know it all about computers because I dont. If I did I would not be here about to post a log file from HiJackThis so that you smart folk can help me figure out what the heck is going on with my WinXP box. Right now I am very interested in learning about the culture of hacking. Not to be a cracker or a script kiddie, but the true culture, meaning, purpose, family, and drive of the hacker. I am currently reading (the best I can) a book called 1337 h4x0r h4ndb00k. Yes I do understand that the book is introductory and yes hardcore hackers might laugh at it but hey you gotta start somewhere. Seriously though, I do enjoy learning and gaining knowledge about computers. I am interested in hardware, learning to program, and Linux. I certainly can not know it all but maybe, just maybe I can learn enough to help others out rather than have others help me all the time. I am one of those computer users with a desire to learn and grow and sometimes in order to learn you have to get help from others. :0
