    Hi everyone - zallison

    Just wanted to say hi to everyone.

    I'm from the Springfield, MO area, work as a senior PC phone support tech for a major PC manufacturer, and have been teaching myself, and some others, all sorts of computer related information since I was 9 or 10.

    I'm 25 currently, mostly self taught, but a quick learner.

    I am currently learning everything I can possibly absorb about Windows Vista, mostly because Vista is slowly becoming a more and more common OS.

    I'm hoping that I can learn some nice tricks, or just good troubleshooting tips as far as security or other various issues by being apart of the community here.

    It'll be a while before I switch to Vista - MS would want to get it's asse in gear before then do away with XP or they will loose a lot more users to *nix.

    Thanks

    I really appreciate the welcomes.

    Actually, I had known of the site for a couple years now, I don't know if he still checks the site, but my Dad is actually the user "aeallison"

    He had tried to get me into the site a while back, but I was working in poultry processing and anything computer related was just a punch in the stomach, felt like I was rotting away at that poultry facility.

    I feel so much better about life and myself in general now that I'm back into PC support, and the fact that I timed my transition into Vista when it was still new and buggy (more so than and Windows release lol) let me figure out what I truly like about Vista.

    I like to watch that Apple commercial that makes fun of UAC. It brings a tear to my eye everytime because it is so true.

    Welcome to AO... The best trick I have learned with Vista is FDISK hehe. My suggestion is to look at tweaking guides and learn the services that are required for Vista as well as you can. I always turn off services I dont need on xp to reduce memory/cpu usage and I think it is a good practice if you know what you are doing...
