When the world is your audience it's hard to figure out when to post stuff. I figured at this point half the world is in 2016 and the rest of you will be soon! Hopefully next year is a blessing and prosperous one for you.
My resolutions are to finish my Hindi course and get started learning Urdu. I think I can stick with that despite the joke below. What are your resolutions or things on your 2016 bucket list?
For my Hindi speaking friends: नए साल की शुभकामनाएं !

The short of it....
I love tech, gadgets of all kinds, computers, Linux operating systems, Android, cooking, preserving, barbecuing, fermenting foods, smoking foods, minor vegetable gardening, travel (real and via my arm chair and a book), beer, wine, coffee (I'm a coffee snob), reading, music (all kinds), electronics, Indian culture and Bollywood movies. Generally anything fun!
The nerd boy....
I'm a huge supporter and fan of open source software and hardware. I love using Linux as my main operating system (Ubuntu preferred) though I'm just as comfortable with Windows too. I have been using computers since the 300 baud modem days! My first personal computer was a Timex Sinclair 1000 with a cassette player for storage. I cut my teeth programming basic on an Apple II. I've maintained equipment that contained electron tubes in the past. That 600 volt plate voltage can hurt....I'll leave it at that.
I love electronics and have been tinkering with creating and testing circuits since I was about 10. I have background training in complex electronics theory which feeds my other love of being a "Maker". I've always been fascinated with what is inside of things and thus needed to pull it apart to see what makes it tick. I'm always looking to improve something or create my own home brewed version. Give me some wood, plastic, LEDs, wires, a perf board and some screws and nails and I'll make you something cool.
The telecom guy....
I'm a smartphone/tablet subject matter expert when it comes to Android or IOS. I prefer to use Android (currently carrying a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and a Nexus 10 tablet), but also daily use IOS as well since it is related to what I do for a living. I believe mobile is the wave of the future as we get more and more power in the palm of our hand. I have been in the telecommunications business since I was 18 dealing with local customer premise equipment including telephone systems and call center system as well as long haul trunking for voice and data (fiber and copper). As traditional telecom merges with data networking it is becoming more and more blurred. Having a background in both voice communications and data networking is working out pretty good for me as telecom becomes more advanced.
The secret only you know...
I'm a freak for Bollywood films! Yes Yes.....I love them and can't get enough of them. I absolutely love India and I dream of one day touring India (मुझे भारत से प्यार है). I will love to travel anywhere, but India has a special love in my heart. नमस्ते!
