Recommend this forum to your friends.
I am always telling other people about this forum and the opportunity usually arises because they have pc problems.

Certainly do. Because of my interest in computers, like yourself, people tend to ask me when they have PC problems and if I can't help always direct them here.

Yes but most of them don't join up because they're afraid of being embarrased at asking silly questions, which I tell them is silly, and they find it easier to ask me because I'm mug enough to always help them out. Some claim they don't have the time to learn and other admit they have no interest. The latter two points I can see.
Regarding the silly posting thing I did what I thought was a cracker. Basically the numeric pad wouldn't work, I spent ages reinstalling keyboard drivers and trying other keyboards but couldn't find what was wrong. I'm sure many of you have guessed, it never occured to me to put the numeric lock key on. Doh! Boy did I feel stupid.

I recommended a friend, who has only recently acquired a computer, this very afternoon and put the url in his Favourites list.

I do quite often although im not sure if any have.

Yep and frequently send them links to view certain threads. I have tried a few Forums but this one impresses me with the quality of the advice and the personable nature of (most of) its inmates.
got to say that I like the no nonsense approch without unneeded wee mees and the like, getting old I suppose.

I'm often to be seen in the High Street with my PCA sandwich board.
