This is a dedicated site for exploring the domain of PC Operations and the horizon of internet resources. - Fern Marc
Personal Computing (PC) Operations deals with all issues concerning personal computing. This includes, but is not limited to installing, using, and maintaining all computers and peripheral devices. In PC Operations we make sure that computers are up to date and operating properly. One of PC Operations most cumbersome tasks is to ensure that computers are loaded with the correct software which correlates to the specific tasks that these computers are needed for. This process involves re-imaging every computer in nearly every 6 months.
PC Operations plays a vital role in keeping schools, offices, companies, homes and individuals on the cutting edge of technology. When new software or hardware comes in, these folks get it, learn it, make it usable, and get it rolled out as quickly as possible. The technology just keeps on rolling, Updates for software and upgrades for hardware gear up as if there's no time to rest. Young, and even old, folks are becoming technology-buffs.
When you mention the word "technology," most people think about computers. Virtually every facet of our lives has some computerized component. The appliances in our homes have microprocessors built into them, as do our televisions. Even our cars have a computer. But the computer that everyone thinks of first is typically the personal computer, or PC.
A PC is a general purpose tool built around a microprocessor. It has lots of different parts -- memory, a hard disk, a modem, etc. -- that work together. "General purpose" means that you can do many different things with a PC. You can use it to type documents, send e-mail, browse the Internet and play games.
Here is one way to think about it: A PC is a general-purpose information processing device. It can take information from a person (through the keyboard and mouse), from a device (like a floppy disk or CD) or from the network (through a modem or a network card) and process it. Once processed, the information is shown to the user (on the monitor), stored on a device (like a hard disk) or sent somewhere else on the network (back through the modem or network card).
We have lots of special-purpose processors in our lives. An MP3 player is a specialized computer for processing MP3 files. A GPS is a specialized computer for handling GPS signals. A Nintendo DS is a specialized computer for handling games, but it can't do anything else. A PC can do it all because it is general-purpose.
