  • new to forum and computers

    Hello all, I found this forum while spending the morning in the house, pupping sitting our puppy who just had surgery. Not sure how I found it, but i'm glad I did!!! I hope to learn alot in the coming months. I will have alot of questions as i',m a beginner. I live in Ohio and have worked for the local school for the last 32yrs and will be retireing soon. I was hoping to find something to keep me busy. I have grandkids who are better with the computer than I am but I'm a fast learner. I guess i better go for now before I blow up the laptop. Till next time, keep smileing, it makes people wonder what you been doing!!!!! Rick

    Hello Rick--
    Welcome to the group. I think you will like it here and the folks will be a great help if you are interested in pursuing scrolling as that "hobby" you mentioned. I am a recent retiree and making sawdust full time is a real kick. Hope to hear from you often.

      Here's hoping that the puppy is doing well.
      Do you have a scroll saw, or is this all new to you?
      Tell us some more about you - we're a good audience! (possibly much different than students!!)

        Hello Rick

        Rick a warning... Scrollsawing is addictive. But who care's, addictive is good. There are some very experieced scrollers in here. Very happy to help with any questions you have. Its a great hobby. The Gallery in here is inspirational.

          I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

          I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
          Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

          One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

          I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

          Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

          If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
