There are many features around this forum. If you want to get the best out of Geekzone, check our Geekzone Guide.

People around here can be funny. When reading a comment don't take it personally as everyone here knows we should always attack arguments not the people behind them. But if you see some sarcastic jokes, it happens. With time you will see there are lots of people who post around the forums in a variety of topics. Those more frequent posters help us make sure the community is safe.

My first computer. Ahh, memories. Held onto it for many years. Unfortunately it has now been lost, much to my dismay.

Welcome! How far north? 

 

Have a look around, ask questions, answer others, get to know folks :)

Housewife computerer: not particularly great at either. 
And don't take me too seriously.
