Hi there. Here is a little about me, for those who are wondering.
I am a 39 year old female. I have been married for eight years. We live in California, USA.
I have been playing with, fixing, and working with computers since 1990. My first system was a Packard Bell 386sx, 4 MB of ram and a 40MB hard drive (if memory serves). It had a 2400 baud Modem. (hahaha). I upgraded it during the first year to have 8MB ram and added a sound card (whooo.... 16 bit even) and a CD ROM drive.
Since then I have had many systems, most of them custom-built by me. Currently I use a Mac Powerbook (don't ban me or think this means I am one of "THOSE" people--I have no ill feelings towards any particular platform). I bought my Mac because I liked the way it looks, and because I have respect for the architecture of the OS. I have never believed - nor do I ever ever miss a chance to disagree with someone who claims that "macs cannot get a virus".
When I am not working or caring for the pets, you can generally find me sitting on the couch with my laptop - enjoying WiFi and watching movies.
My spouse and I are the "go to" people for our friends having problems with anything they call "electronical". (yes, that is a term one of them actually uses).
Sometime in the near future, I am going to help a friend who wants to be released from the grip of Vista, because she really wants to be back in the known-and-familiar-safety she is used to having - XP.
I also like music, anything NOT reality-tv, and reading. My favorite movie genres are: action/adventure, horror, suspense, true crime... fictional violence* brings me stress relief (and usually makes me happy). I'm a freak that way.
*I do not like to see people being tortured (when it's real)... and war movies make me cry. (sometimes)
