In the past I have participated in many forums as a possibly overactive member. I have no formal training. I pick up lots of things cause I mess up lots of things and have to search all over the internet to find possible solutions. Sometimes, I read a problem I have actually found a solution for, through trial and error, or diligent(?) web searches. I always qualify any opinions as such.

I live in Paducah Kentucky, am a retired, permanently disabled Viet Nam veteran squeaking by on what the Veterans Administration deems is appropriate. My 16 years in the military did provide me with an ability not to get in a hurry, so I found web searches has been a great experience.

I started on an old Coomodore 64 computer, thru 386's up to my current 64 bit laptop, slow, but functional, running, most of the time, on WIndows XP Pro.

I will be taking a silent by stander's seat in this forum for a bit, but if I ever get something I can spout off about, I will. Bare with me. I just can't type......

Many Members remember fondly the Vic20 and Commodore64.
This community thrives on active participation, so take some time to get the "feel" of BC, and then take the plunge and begin to post.
Welcome to BC!
