i am no professional computer user either, in fact, i am still really lost in all of it...
but alot of the times people are asking about things i have worked through.
things like how to make shortcuts, and how to change certain settings. and on the common occasion that i am a little unsure, i go to a search engine, or i ask some of my relatives who are better than me. then i come back here and reply the best i can. i know i have been wrong more than once, but when i am someone who knows will correct it. (hopefully before my bad advice hurts something) but so far, i have been able to help quite a few times. and i also ask alot of questions. some of them are a good way to get an idea of my level of skill. but, stick around, ask about anything that plagues you. and if you see someone having problems that you are knowledgable about, then try to help. it isnt only about giving advice here. the main point of this forum is for us to help each other with our problems, and share our experiences, and to combine each and every one of us in a way to combine our knowledge. ya know, two heads are better than one....
this is sort of a "tech support think tank" where a question will be pondered and commented on by some of us, and then the question asker is able to conclude who knows what thay are talking about, and they are more informed on what is happening to their pc...
also, we like to kick it alot too, just B.S.ing and sitting around sharing funny stuff. but hey, i'm always glad to see people coming here and sharing. it has helped me alot of times.
and sometimes i look through old posts, and i learn alot from them. there is no "Big Book Of Computer Techniques" but there is forums like this..
and sometimes i link them together, by seeing someone here with a problem and going to another forum like this and asking there. then if i get an answer i research it a little, and then i share my knowledge.
i really like it here, and even here soon when i won't have access to the internet i will be checking into this forum from friends's houses. and with a name like techsupportforums.com i wont be forgetting it anytime during this century...
forgive my ramblings, i havent had the best of days, and babbling helps me forget about it...
