And hi again from central Ohio. I'm as old as the guy who just posted before me; I've been computing since the days of the first PCs. I recall the first PC that I used at work when I worked for a Defense agency in Columbus. It had no hard drive. To boot up, you first installed the DOS disk and then started the computer. After DOS was loaded, you removed the DOS disk and installed the LOTUS 1-2-3 disk; it and a word processing program were the only application software we had then. My, how times have changed. The Internet, digital photography, digital music, email, instant messaging, etc., etc. It's been a marvelous journey.

Welcome to BC!
It is simply amazing how far computing has come in the lifetime of many of us here at BC who can remember a time BC (before computers).
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
