    Re: The Introduce Yourself Topic!!!

    hi im a scrounger/hoarder and i have lots of old computers lying around my kitchen/lounge/dining room floor. i nearly have all of them working again some are win98 some are 2000. im going thru the xp ones and have reached a hiccup - i have never used/installed a graphics card and ive noticed (much to my distress) this webby isn't idiot-proof enough for me. how do i start a thread or, where do i ask the q's to get the answers? i think my problems also stem from not having an IT thesaurus and worse - no IT background!

    Re: The Introduce Yourself Topic!!!

    I have never formally introduced myself here so I figured now would be a good time to. :)

    I have been writing over the past couple of years. I have come to realize to think positive you have to live positive as well and this took me a very long time to realize and writing about good positive things made me change my whole outlook on life itself which is why I decided to chose this path in life rather than the old warn down path I have traveled over everyday before.

    I'm a simple person and I live simple. I believe first impressions mean a lot in this day and age. I'm the kind of guy who would rather sit in the back row as long as I have a good view of things in front of me. Most importantly I like to have fun and make people laugh.

    I like to surround myself with good positive and honest people. I like people with a good sense of humor who like to laugh. I don't have time for people who are stuck on themselves and think the worlds owes them everything. I prefer people who are stuck on life and live it to the fullest!


    I believe in being true to yourself because this has lead me to be true to others in return. To me there is no greater reward than having a true honest friendship and relationship with true and like minded individuals who actually care about you.

    I'm a gracious person and I go out of my way to be nice to people because this is who I have become over the years.. yes there are still caring people running around this universe.

    The worst thing you can do is judge people. I enjoy the simple things in life and I am very spiritual in that respect. I enjoy writing in my spare time and sharing my thoughts and philosophies with others.

    Like many of you here I am a hardware enthusiast and enjoy building and overclocking in my spare time as well. :)

    Re: The Introduce Yourself Topic!!!

    Hmm... This wasn't here when I joined, so I suppose I should do one now.


    Hi, I'm Andy. I've been using computers since before I learned to speak. My first PC was a Commodore 128, which I taught myself BASIC on when I was 7. Since then, I've been writing software, fixing computers, and messing around with all things digital.
    I'm a very logical/mathematical person, but I have a lot of respect for written language as well. The Myers/Briggs personality type indicator says I'm an INTJ, which means Introverted, Intuitive, Thinking, and Judging. On top of that, I have what most people call a unique perspective on everything, being an anarcho-socialist with a disgust for most technologies and humanity in general, since neither follow the natural order of evolution.
    I run a few websites, including my home, which I created entirely using Notepad, Paint, and The GIMP. I hate GUI, and if I had my druthers, I'd still be using a text-based environment. Despite that, I believe Windows 7 is the best operating system Microsoft has released. Period. I just hope the final release doesn't screw up bigtime somehow. (And I'd like my Up button in Explorer back, please.)

    Ya, that's it.

    Re: Post yourself!!! (56k Warning)

    :rolleyes: Okee Dokee. I'm Granny and I'm NEW to this site and forum. So hello to you all ! Not sure if I'm in the right place (Oh by the way, I really am a Grandmother of 7, so I'm not joking here).
    About me? Married 42 years to the same poor guy, who puts up with me. 3 married daughters. 2 grandsons, 5 granddaughters. I normally play Half Life, DOD, and some of those types of games (I hate to knit), and since my custom made gaming PC of 5 years decided to bite the dust, I'm using my laptop while my PC guys are rebuilding me another one.
    So, in my free time, I've been singing Karaoke online. I like killing games better though. Since this is the Off-topic forum, I guess I'll have to find another forum where I can ask my question.
    Anyhow, really nice to meet all of you! ;)
    I'd post a pic of me, but I'm not sure how to do it. Sorry bout that.

    and last year i put on a lot of weight due to all the stress that had been going on because of family issues. however, because of my height and body build, i don't look like i weigh what i actually weigh, lol.

    Re: Post yourself!!! (56k Warning)

    CDsDontBurn....I'm afraid to guess, but I'll be brave and say 20 - 23? I know I'm out of my league here, but I just got back from a doctor appointment, and the guy at the desk said, "Wow! You don't look like 60!" Not sure if that made my day or not. I was afraid to ask . . . Well do I look older than or younger than 60. Fear kept me from asking...Ding Dang Double Dern it. I just don't know the ins and outs of PC stuff to post my real pic here....Anyhow, I'm sure enough I'm old enough to be to the most of you a mother or grandmother...what the heck, I didn't get a choice of when I was to be born, or if I should be born.
    By the way...what does the (56k Warning) mean? :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
