Default Stroke survivor


I recently had a stroke which has mauled my handwriting and I have difficulty following instructions; I'd dearly like to register for your forums, but I don't know how. Thanking you in advance for your patience, Regards, Lynn

HI Lynn

WOW I have to first off say, well done you for pulling through the stroke and I wish you a good recovery.

As for registering well you have already done that as you have posted this message so you are registered on the forums and with 16 posts from Jan 2010 onwards

If you need any assitsance is navigating the forum or just want to know where to post your question on computing then pick the most apt topic heading like Hardware, Software, Malware and if all else fails, post in this welcome area and we will move it for you to the best area to get an answer.

If you get stuck, do not fret, just post a help thread/Topic in the welcome area and we will assit you as best as we can.

Regards
David

Thank you so much for your lovely welcome and I hope to be in touch soon. I'm sure as a result of the stroke I'll have many 'DUH' moments and will be looking for your assistance.

One thing, how do I post an avatar ~ Regards, Lynn

Hey Lynn, I have DUH.... Homer moments every day and I work with and train doctors! so your DUH moments are likely to be a PITA for you but a welcome relief for me and others who just want to share the computing knowledge with others... so its a DUH moment for all, but if you bring DUFF Beer then all will be fine

I really would not worry about duff moments, if you have a question post way as I or one of the admin team here will pick up your post and help you as much as we can so you get the right advice.

Default Stroke survivor/change

I'd like to congratulate your Mother on her survivor skills, however, not all strokes are the same. I barely have typing skills (hunt and peck), which would have been 120 words per minute, my handwriting is almost non-existent; luckily I have a good cyberfriend who will explain to me what is going on, without that I'd be almost lost. I/was a graphic designer ~ Regards, Lynn
