Hi All, I've been around the forums now for a few weeks and thought it about time I introduced myself.
My name is Chris, and I come from England. Before being retired on health grounds, I was a computer programmer, back in the 70's on a mainframe and later on PC's.

I am disabled withM.S. and have found my iPad to be a real lifesaver. I have been amazed by all the things it is able to do, and all in a thin pad that I'm happy to sit on my lap.

I have trouble getting my hands to do what I want them to, so the touch screen was a problem for me, but now overcome when my wife got me an Apple keyboard.

These forums have been a great information source to me.

I may not write many threads but I'll certainly be reading most.
