Hi, I'm new here (in case you couldn't tell). I.e. I have 1) visited a couple times before and 2) am a veteran computer support person (32 yrs) and now forcibly retired by the job market. 'See, the last place I worked at closed in 2007, right smack on my 50'th birthday, and in this country (Sweden) training and experience count for nothing; age (< 30 preferably) is everything.

So, at 55, not even receiving a thanks-but-no-thanks note when applying for jobs, much less being asked to come and be interviewed, I got the message and took early retirement.

Coming here tonight, I saw that the site, which has been very helpful to me before, was in dire straits because of the Spy Hunter suit so I donated and then thought I might as well become a member.

'Sall.
