Smile Greetings from a starry-eyed newbie!

Hello, Tech Forums! My name is Kevin (I go by Hugo online), I'm 17, and from New York State.
I've been getting more and more interested in computers, but I'm still extremely green. My greatest achievement in hardware is de-dust-bunnying an old desktop and upgrading its memory; my software success is dual-booting Ubuntu and Windows 7 without accidentally formatting my hard drive; my programming experience stops at a program that prints a pyramid of stars of a user-specified height on my Commodore 64 (gahh, tape loading!)
Anyway, I'm glad to be here, and I hope to learn a lot!

Welcome to the forums Kevin
