Hello Folks.

It's nice to see that this forum exists, and that the people here want to help others. When I first started learning about computers, the big news was the Apple. I earned my Computer Science degree some 23 years ago, and used an IBM PC (first version) then later a Leading Edge Model M (which I still have!). Pretty dated.

I have never worked in data processing or Computer Science, but I do consider myself a reasonably capable computer geek. What I see nowdays though, is more and more complexity and interaction leading to system and/or software problems. I know that hardware developers, in particular motherboard engineers, seem to be in a great hurry to get their products on the market as fast as possible, and that is a serious source of problems.

Windows gets a lot of bad press, and I think that is largely due to the unbelieveable myriad of new products reaching consumers too quickly. I have heard IT professionals (tongue-in-cheek here) say that MS and others release their software to consumers for cheap beta-testing, and that may also be true. But a lot of the problems people experience (IMHO) are due to hardware issues. And the inability of MS or anyone else to test under all conditions.

Anyway, I am glad to be here, and am going to post problems I have and see what others think. I may even be able to put a few of my own pearls out there, but I won't unless I am sure!

Good work developing and maintaining this forum.

Regards, Jim Darrough
