Interests: Golf, Golf and Golf in that order ;)

I used to enjoy offering tips to other PC users but unfortunately health became a major issue for me, and I gave it up a while ago. I am now diagnosed as having Menieres Disease (perhaps I should have called myself Dizzyoldbloke) and I became interested in malware when friends started delivering machines to me for cleaning.

My interest in computers was about the same time as Mr Babbage (Yes I had a Sinclair ZX80) around 1979-1980. I am completely self-taught (I think that shows), and I like to take on new tasks that I know nothing about (most things). :tazz:

How did you find Geeks to Go?:: Doing a search through google

Other: I have always been interested in computers. I first used a computer at age 8, and taught my parents how to use it. I would just look around the start menu and such and click on everything, surprisingly I didn't mess anything up. All I really did was change the wallpaper on accident. My parents then yelled at me saying I broke the computer lol. I plan on majoring in the feild of computers. I'm going to be a senior in high school this year. If you wan't to know anything else just ask.
