A computer enthusiast since fairly recently [Win2k] got the geek bug. A convert to off road mountain biking (used to snowboard.) Hobbyist mechanic, recently purchased an ’81 Citroen Dyane in need of some TLC (always wanted a 2CV.)

As would not attempt to recap a mobo, would not attempt to build a wheel [MTB] but enjoy maintaining my car, bike & PCs. And well, who knows… I might just service those forks?

It should be checked by default with a fresh install. Top right -> shutdown dialog -> shutdown -> square window in middle of screen.
