    I live in the UK, have had pc's for many years, mainly at home for games, plus spreadsheets for business bits-and-pieces; also at work regularly. Now long retired and loving it!
    Only saw iPad in operation a few months ago and knew I had to have one. So I got one, as soon as my birthday came around (good excuse).
    I love the games, especially the low prices, but haven't got the quick responses any more to post big scores.
    Love the key board, although I really miss the "delete" key and "arrow" keys.
    Bought a "definitive guide to: iPad" book and it solved quite a lot of my technical problems but there are always some sticking points which aren't covered. So it's great that there is an iPad Forum which can be used when everything grinds to a halt, for want of a second thinking head.
    I'm afraid that since I retired from work I seem to have lost ground with computer technology and don't twitter or tweet, although I am on Facebook, at odd times. The new iCloud introduced for the iPad is great, although I don't understand how it's all been achieved. It would be really great if I wasn't in such a poor broadband area. I can only get 3Mb on a good day and 0.4Mb upload. Such things are sent to try us!
    That's all for now.

    Hi Ernier - welcome to the forum! :)

    Plenty of great people here & LOTS of information already available, so searching is always a worthwhile start.

    Just retired myself (end of June) and enjoying - hope that you have fun here and looking forward to your posting - :thumbs:

    P.S. if your location is indeed a valid email address for you, I'd suggest removal to avoid email harvesting (unless you love spam) - Check HERE!

    Thanks very much for tip about not putting email address as location. I've replaced it with "England". I'm a greenhorn at using forums, so, hopefully I wont make any other blunders. Cheers Ernier.
