I am going to wear my Casio G-Shock instead of my Black Pebble watch until the Pebble Store opens for the Android platform.

Introduction

Just another open minded computer nerd and a General class amateur "ham" radio operator, N5EVD and a lifetime member of BVARC, the Brazos Valley Amateur Radio Club (Sugar Land, TX).  I have computers running Linux Mint Cinnamon and PC-BSD Unix.  Being a ham, I have a working rapidly deployable wireless mesh HSMM WRT-54GL box ready to roll !

I am a member of the Ubuntu Houston group and the Houston Linux Society.  Free and Open Source rules.
