Hello and welcome, Stripeyhoss.
I hope you enjoy visiting here, and I hope you jump in with some contributions of your own. We share jokes, news, and interesting websites, as well as parts of our own lives. Sometimes we discuss or argue about weighty matters. This is a good place for learning about computers and asking questions on the subject (which was our original starting point, with a special focus on the drivers one needed for Windows devices). In recent years, Windows has made some improvements, but we still fix problems as they come up. There are some really excellent tech minds here.
We'd be glad to hear about your interests, hobbies, and knowledge. We have some pet lovers here, and would be glad to hear about any pets you have, too.
Hi there, and welcome to the forums.
With a name like stripeyhoss, you wouldn't be American, would you?
Stripeyhoss, I'd like to keep your interest here at Karlsforums. What kinds of posts do you like to read?
Hi Stripey .... I'm new here too and a little shy so still tending to lurk a bit rather than post but they are a lovely friendly bunch.
You? Shy? Hmmmmmmm............
thank you all for the lovely welcome , I like to read all kinds of things really , from the bizzare to the serious , just finding my way around atm
and hope to get to know you all a little better
LOL @ LSemmens , no im not American, its bit of a private joke between myself and my niece
Welcome to the madhouse anyway, Stripey, what part of the world do you hail from, anyway? As you'll see from my sig, I live in Godzone, (AKA OZ), we
have a majority of Brits, a few Scots (wonderful people), a few Americans (gotta watch those 'mericans - they might try to shoot you) and one or two
other nationalities, so, sometime, somehow, you'll find someone to offend you, but we still tolerate scholar and giron anyway.
Seriously, though, we are a friendly lot, I came here out of interest some years back, and haven't been able to escape, sorta like prison, really!
How did you come across this forum?
I was looking for forums that did pc help , looked at a few then came across this one , im not very savvy with the workings of a computer so I wont
bore you with the techy problem i had ( anyway that was fixed by a friend who seemed to know what he was doing )
after looking at a few of the threads/ topics I noticed it wasnt all computer based and thought i might join , hope you dont mind
btw how do I change the New User ? cant seem to find it in the profile page
Patience, dear stripey, patience. Oh, and posting.
You need to make enough good posts to be offered a custom user title by Dreamweaver the owner of this site.
How do you do S/H , hope that field is comfy .

PC help we can do! Remember, we were all newbies once, so if you don't know/understand something, just ask. Dumb questions are easier to fix than dumb mistakes. Even our "experts" get caught out sometimes.
