Totally out of my depth, here...


Hello, Community! (I'll try programming that instead of "Hello, World!")

Does that tell you anything about how NEW I am to this? Mostly self-taught by trial and error, utilizing library references and online searches, I have somehow managed to gain a local reputation for minor computer repair, primarily trouble-shooting in BIOS, undoing malware damage, and doing clean OS installs. People have donated old computers for me to do whatever I want and my ambition is to build a "Franken-puter" from the spare bits. I've discovered tech folks are usually quite generous with their knowledgeable input and amazingly patient. So, I'm hoping to tap into the brainiac collective here when I need advice.

My life outside of tech is busy so this will be done whenever I can get some time to myself. I hope to visit here whenever time and motivation permits. However, I've also noticed that when I post about something I'm hoping to do, it kind of encourages personal accountability, and I am more inclined to MAKE time! So, now it begins... :-)

Looking forward to getting to know the community! Be well and stay safe!
