I'm a retired IT techie with over 30 years experience of everything from microprocessors, microcomputers, PCs, minicomputers and mainframes. I worked with operating system software development and support in the main, plus lots of networking (TCP/IP in particular). I'm most experienced in large IBM mainframe systems software but I've been a Windows user since day 1 (and MSDOS before that).
My main interests are operating system internals (scheduling, memory management, etc.), sailing, anything to do with computers, umm ... sailing (no I said that already) and ... err... computers. Oh, and geology.
I'm an unpaid volunteer moderator. I don't work for PCS so all views are my own and are not necessarily endorsed by PCS.
If I make changes to your post (or delete it) it's because in my opinion it breaks the forum rules,
