Re: Newb Here, Attempting to socialize. :)
Welcome to CF! Like the username!
Reading some of the threads is a great way to learn. If you scroll down on the site, there's a Computer Articles thread that has some walkthroughs on various items. These can help you get familiar with your computer. One site I recommend though is Books 24x7. There's all kinds of books out there and usually the latest technology books are uploaded. I have a free membership through my school and it's absolutely great! I believe that a standard membership is $199 a year though, but well worth it if you're the reading type.
Humans are the only creatures that won't live up to the their potential. Give everything your all. When you die, die on E.
So I ask you, what do you intend to do now?
