  1. This site kept coming up in searches for solutions to my PC problems. After lurking around for a while, I decided to join. Lots of good help here. Thanks to all who help on their own time.

    I'd welcome you aboard the motley crew but you're a stowaway!! :p

    Actually, one reason I joined TechSpot despite being a tech professional is to bone up on my tech skills. I once worked as a tech agent at a Dell call centre but went back to work in high tech as an engineer. When my contract didn't get renewed, (as the high tech depression continues!) I helped some friends by solving their computer problems. I then decided to make a business out of it. Problem is, I'm a one person operation. I have no one to turn to for tech advise if I'm stuck. Joining a site like this helps me keep my skills sharp and ask for help myself. As I tell customers, not even Bill Gates knows everything about PCs!!
