Hi Everyone, 


Savinganimals here...literally! I am hoping this forum will be helpful as I run a veterinary clinic and that includes being "IT support." I am self taught on most topics and please forgive me for not knowing proper names/terms.

As far as not knowing the proper names/terms, that's how we all start out.  If and when you have issues it would be a great help to have a relatively precise description of what's happening (or not happening that you think should be happening when you take a certain action) including the full text of any error messages you receive.  The key to solving a problem is for the assistant to have some reasonable idea of what it is.


Posts titled "Help!!" with no real content are not helpful to anyone.  Posts with titles that relate to what's wrong, with a non-technician's description of what's going on are worth their weight in gold.

Welcome aboard! No worries about not being versed in terminology, that takes a whole lot of time.
