howdy all. just wanted to introduce myself and say thanks to all the computer gods that post here. i'm a computer enthusiast and have learned a lot here over the past years. i'm the one ev1 calls when their computer frags, so every bit of knowledge helps. finally decided to stop lurking and join in the fun. don't have much to offer. i'm not a programmer although i'm attempting to learn a little. my first computer was an IBM PCjr that i modded to soup it up a little. ev1 programmed in the primitive languages. i'm sure what i know most of you know already, but i'll post when i think i have something to offer,and if it helps it helps. i'm what us oldies call a jack of all trades, but master of none. anyways, hello to all and thanks for a great forum.
