    Welcome to Ten Forums Willie. Although this is not a Linux Forum there are many members here who dabble.

    A thread on the forum is just a conversation between someone seeking help and the helpers.

    Hello!
    I'm new here. I'm 74, a retired mainframe programmer. Been using PCs since 1986. Current one is an HP Envy convertible laptop running Win10.
    I live out in the country NW of Greensboro NC, along with my wife DB (that's Darlin' Bride), 2 dogs, 3 housecats, 1 porch cat (she was evicted for refusing to use a litter box), and 3 parrots (DB retired from a pet store).
    Enjoy camping and kayaking.
    My nickname was bestowed by my fraternity brothers at Michigan State in honor of what they called a "barbaric" sense of humor. (That's polite talk for being a pun-happy sm@rt@$$.)

    Hi and happy New Year to everyone. I do hope 2021 will be better for all of us.

    My name is Dave Podmaroff. I worked for a large Canadian Telecommunications technology company and have been retired a few years now. I have been using computers since 1975 mostly as a user but made sure I learned enough to be able to dig myself out of trouble most of the time. (Mainframes to desktop computers etc.) I am not a hardware or software expert by any means but I have been able to help many of my coworkers and family with their issues in using most applications and setting up their devices and networks.

    I am now biting the bullet and now starting to work on transitioning my primary home Win 7 desktop computer to a new Win 10 desktop computer. I know I am slow to doing this transition but I had no reason to change until Microsoft dropped support last year. Soo... now I have need for some advice from this forum.

    Hi y'all, I'm Marty and started working with mainframes at Atari in 1979. After they tanked moved to Brussels, found a tech support contract at Citibank tech development center in system group supporting application development. They shut down there to move into a new site in Parsippany NJ. Wife and I flew back to California then drove out to NJ for installing the systems in new center. Bounced around contracting in NJ, NYC and VA until 1989 when we came back 'home' to California. Worked in and around Sacramento writing proposals to the state for Delta Dental and Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Continued buying foreclosure single family homes to rehab then sell or occasionally move into. Slowly phased out of contract gigs, went through a divorce and moved to family ranch at edge of San Jose. Now I try to fix more equipment or fences or whatever than I break. Staying relatively current with personal computers/laptops and continuing to dislike Micro$not more with each succeeding OS. Windows 10 is a not veiled reporting system that attempts to grab and report on any connect capable devices it can find. Their intent looks to be the primary hub for upcoming IoT purposes. As most techs know, the bug house releases, lack of concern and laissez faire attitude towards customers has been getting worse. Now they want to lease out future OS platforms. How bad will that turn out keeping in mind lack of concern and buggy releases I cannot imagine. Worst case scenario might start with, "Would you like to play thermo-nuclear warfare?" Peace and out.
