Experienced PC geek
Introduction
I was born and raised on Cape Cod, but have lived all of my adult life in Pittsburgh, PA.

My mom bought my first computer, a Commodore 64 in 1984. It started out being just for games, then I learned BASIC. After that, it was on to the Amiga 500 which was my first, last and only personally purchased, store-bought computer.

In 1994, I built my first PC (a 486-DX2/66) and have been upgrading and fixing desktop machines ever since.

I am a hardware guy at heart. I know Windows, but I generally don't program (although I spent two years programming exclusively in Visual BASIC). I like the challenge of coding, but find it boring.

I've taken a retail job to get by, but feel my talents aren't utilized to their maximum potential.  Hoping a blog will be both cathartic for myself and helpful for others.
Bragging rights
I'm not an egotist. Fixing computers is my thing. I feel I'm very good at it and I'm proud of what I can do. It makes up for the fact that I kinda suck at most everything else.
