    Hello! My name is Nick, Gochenour not only is my screen name, but my last, virtually giving away my identity but who gives a damn right? Anyways! I'm here because I'm having issues with stuff, and/or want to learn something or need help with computer management (often looking at stuff to download) I tend to try every possible way I know to fix my issue before going to forums like this, so don't expect to see much of me unless someone here has me hooked! Thanks for reading, I know how much you don't care, but a friendly introduction is always helpful when meeting new people.

    I feel truly initiated, thanks for the links and will do!

    I love this site first off because the community, before I joined, seemed just flat out friendly and awesome. Secondly, I found more than a quarter of my information on this very website, I learned about Razer Products, as well as a few other now large tech brands ON THIS VERY SITE (<3 Razer Kraken btw) and it's always fun passing the time downloading a bunch of random software to mess with! Hope I can learn a lot from you guys, especially since I decided to start asking questions on here (take that as a compliment, I'm MAJORLY (heh...) set out to be a lone wolf, so I only ask for help when I need it.)

    If you are going to test programs on your computer, you could save yourself a lot of hard ship,by installing Virtual Machine(s)
    You can test the programs on them, and simply delete the VM, if it gets into state. You can then install any good ones on your main Windows, if you like them.
    Personally, I found Windows own version a bit of a pain- but I use Oracle Virtualbox
    You willfind som intersting views, and ideas here

    Glad to see that this website has served you well for so long! Hopefully it'll be the same for me. Might be using it as a resource for my senior project! x3

    Hey Nick if we can help you just have to ask as many of our members are from different backgrounds and not all IT related, but have a passion for IT, take mine, I have dealt with IT from the 80s but in both the photo industry (Kodak) and now medial ophthalmology research with a heavy emphasis on imaging. SO you will get a wealth of opinions.
