Default An old bear joins the Forums

Greetings all,

Ive been a IT tech in various fields for the last 18+ years, and been around computers in various forms for the last 30+, in fact my first computer at home was an Altar 2 (think, computer from war games the movie)

As I get around and get the feel for the place, I hope to contribute to the posts and help others out. Of course your never too old to need help yourself.

Props for having a Altair, I really want to find a working 8800 in working condition n the UK but they are as rare as rocking horse dung.

My friend has an 8800GT, and he's upgrading to a 5870 in the next week or so.
