Default Re: Where are u guys learning all this computer stuff from?

I would have to say that alot of what i know came from magazines like pc world -and any knid of mag. that has to do with computers.

second biggest thing is that i'm all self taught, I love finding out how things work...especially computers. i also love to fix them. I get alot of info from one of the best sources...your local library.

i am no book worm, but i can't resist picking up a good mag. on computers and reading up on the latest news. i also once in a while check out the tweak sites just to see if there are any new tweaks i havent figures out yet.

Computers Rule !!

I've learned all since I was little, when we got our first computer, I couldn't get off of it. I became so interested that everything I learned fascinated me more and more. It's easy, you just have to be interested.

It certainly easier to pick up things if you have an interest in computers,but I personally think you only really get to know from hands on, the more you start to do things yourself the more you remember although Ive come up a cropper on a few occasions .
