While I have not been active on this site for years I used to be oldhippie, I was a tech staff at geekstogo under the name hfcg or hippiefreakcomputergeek.
I have owned my own repair business as well as working at a computer shop as the technician. I have years of experience as well as multiple industry certifications.
I stopped being a Microsoft fan after I failed to remove the built in spyware in Windows 10. I use Windows 7 myself and Precise Puppy.
I dont remember the BB codes, have to relearn them.
Feel free to ask questions.
