Hi, everyone. A short note to put me on the map.

My name is Alan. A man of advancing years. I'm British, from London, but for the last nine years I have been living and working 'down in the Jungle' on the southern Philippine island of Mindanao.

I have been using personal computers, of one type or another, I guess, for about 15 years. Although I can handle spreadsheets, word processors etc. with reasonable skill, I admit, I know little about how the machine works.

I suspect, I am not alone.

Of course, I do have a possible problem (for another forum), which prompted me to search for a site such as this. However, I look forward to reading some of your notes and, hopefully, belatedly, learning more about the gizmo, that we have all become so dependent on.

We demand from computers that they do more and varied tasks each year, and thus they so increase in complexity that no one can really be an expert in every area. Members here, consequently, rely on each other's expertise in different areas where they have experience.
