Default New kid on the block :)

Hello joined up today mainly because Yahoo Answers couldn't keep up, ha ha. Anyway I'm a high school student in a trade school training for my A+ certification hoping to obtain that and my diploma by end of next year.

Quick side question, is talking about torrents and downloading taboo here?

Welcome to the forums.

Yes, torrents are taboo here, but you could imply it to a certain extent.


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

Great to have you with us... Welcome to Tech-Forums.

Yes, torrent talk is a fast ticket out of here. Such discussions are best held elsewhere than the public eye.
