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.
There is always something new in computing.
