I am a retired IT consultant who started working with computers when they used to occupy whole buildings. My area of expertise was management information systems - I worked as a programmer/analyst for all sorts of organizations, designing or creating or maintaining the database systems that recorded their activities. I had been doing this work for several years before PCs came in, but ended up doing "enterprise" work using PCs over networks that might or might not have mainframes as their workhorses.

Since I retired, Microsoft and Intel have been kind enough to make PCs much more powerful and even more complicated. I now seem to spend more time trying to understand the complications of my own two Windows machines than actually using them for any purpose... and I am fed up! I need some way of discussing problems with other people who might have the same ones - and, even better, might have found out how to solve them. Technical support departments can be very helpful, but not when it comes to questions like "What is going wrong?". As I discovered when I advised small businesses on setting up computer systems, software and hardware sellers can always find some reason for dodging problems: "Not in our area!"

That is why I am here.
