Newbie seeks "Inner Geek", can barely find Inbox

Hi. I'm 50 years old and new to the world of personal computers and the Internet. I have only had a PC since March, 2006. Really! Had my nose stuck in books and theaters. Thought it was still 1918. Thought that a "connection" was something that happened on a dance floor, beach or mountain. Someone elbowed me in the head and informed me that the 20th Century ended... damn it. Then someone bought me a television. It's kinda neat... makes a good night-light. Gave up my own business of 17 years and had to get a job...Yikes! Had to get email to apply... lol.

Before most of you were born, I did graphic design with an Exacto knife, light table, waxer and rubylith... and worked as a fine typographer on an incredible dedicated computer system, before desktop publishing took over, but, it's now in a landfill somewhere. Leaving that, I never wanted to look into a screen again. I was a fool to avoid the PC Revolution and now I have completely embraced it and seek sites and mentors that will help me understand the lingo, programs, problems and keep my "New World" functioning. For instance... I am such a newbie that, other than knowing that I'm using Windows XP, I am unable to answer ANY of the questions in my profile's System Specs section with confidence that I know what I'm talking about. That's where I'm at.

Starting from scratch here. Can old dogs can learn new tricks? Hope so! Very glad that I have found you nice people. :pray:

Thanks, sawblog/Steve
