I've recieved 2 emails the other 20 odd were deleted by filter and I 
never saw them

Do you know I got this computer from Computerbank March 20th

Do you know that all I know is windows and I learning something new

Do you know I had major nasal surgery on March 26 with a reall risk of 
death and they had me in intensive care attatched to a ventilator and 
heart monito

I was deperate to get the computer set up for before the surgery so the 
printer and modem would work  in case I died David my husband who has 
recourating from a broken back and wrist from a work place injury could 
still looke for work

Do you know that I was going to volunteer to answer the phone on 
Saturdays in a couple of weeks and see if I could rearrange things to be 
there on Wednesdays as well so the phones could be answered

I thought computerbank was to help disadvantaged people like myself and 
david to gain a computer and to learn linux and hopefully get the info 
out htere into the communtiy

I didn't know you needed an IT degree to do that

I now feel like my questions are stupid, boring and far beneath many of 
you. I was always taught that the secret of sucess is to share knowledge 
and pass it to others.  I have spent hours and hours searching for 
informaiton on the net and only now am I finding things relevant to my level

I've withdrawn my offer to answer phones even though I have experience 
in reception and currently volunteer as a receptionsit as Kalimnia and 
before Windermere.  I don not have the levels or skills to help out with 
linux and debian and kde so I would be more of a hinderance than help

I had put things forward as I found things and will continue to do so 
because I believe that there are other novices out there like me  who 
might appreciate things I find..  if it only helps !1computer bank 
person thats success you can always delete if its from me and you know 
its beneath your superiority

So this doesn't happen why haven't one you techno geeks put to gether a 
page for the basic training manual of where newbies ot go to
*Well don't worry I will,  from things I've found Kylies found and 
people have emailed me mostly LUV who is supporting* me
