A pretty young thing . . .
. . . I am not! A wrinkled old granny would be closer. I have a lot of fun with my computer, and for some strange reason take an interest in security issues. Not that I will ever progress beyond the knowledge level of a newbie. Sheesh! At this stage of life, as they say, my "forgetter" is getting better and my "rememberer" is getting worse. I didn't choose the moniker "Airhead" for nothing! But I try.
Basically, I am just hoping to learn enough to keep from getting my computer infected with a disabling virus, to keep the script kiddies out of my machine, and to help out my friends, who have even less computer knowledge than I.
I will probably be lurking more than posting, but when I do post . . . help out a little old lady, will you?
