Just wanted to say a quick hello. I posted a problem in a forum on the TomCoyte site, and after solving my problem I was sent to bleepingcomputer to check out the Slow Comupter Checklist.

The folks at TomCoyte are great and they provide a lot of information, but the more resources I have the better.

I have Techie aspirations, but seem to be lacking in the Techie aptitude department. I know enough to do some real damage, but not enough to fix any of it.

I'm hoping to just wake up one day and find that I suddenly understand everything there is to know about programming, software, and the hardware that makes up my PC and a variety of devices that refuse to submit to my will.

Kind of like how Peter Parker was unwittingly bitten by a spider, then by some mysterious twist of fate, avoided being hit by a car by jumping several floors up the side of a building and hung there -- JUST LIKE A SPIDER.

I haven't been infected by that particular virus yet but it's just a matter of time; I've certainly attracted all of the other ones. While I'm waiting, forums like this are an excellent alternative.

By the time you learn everything, everything has changed twelve times.
