G'day from Australia!  Short intro as I have a problem that I am stumped with...


I live in New South Wales and probably like most of us, I have developed a love/hate relationship with computing.  Right now it's bordering on hate.  :wink:


I completed a few mid level courses (Cert IV TAFE) in Networking and Multimedia some time ago but began my computer relationship much earlier. Basically I bought a computer and started breaking it... I learned to either fix it or take it to someone who could.


I am running Windows 10 on one SSD and Linux Mint on a separate SSD (same machine) - which is currently giving me grief.  I also updated an old laptop with a SSD and Linux Mint 18.1 which is what I am using now... I really like Mint! Hoping to give MS the flick soon.


Anyway, I have been a long time voyeur of Bleeping Computer, so it's probably about time I joined the fun.
