Greetings All !

I'm 55 y/o and this is my first computer. You know the type. Stacked up like
cordwood right next to the TV's and microwave ovens. Across the way
from the autoparts section, near the fishing rods and bait. After enlisting the aid of an
experienced 13 y/o I'm up and running !!! So far there have been no explosions
or burning wires, but the year is still young...............

Be very careful about what you download!
