Yep, that's me. Geekin' out since the Commodore Vic20 was just becoming a household name. Storing programs on cassette tape! My first travels into a network were sloooooww! At only 150 baud, you saw every character appear on screen (like in the Wargames movie). My first stop was a local BBS over plain old telephone lines. WOw! What a rush.
Well, now the internet is part of everyone's lives and I for one couldn't do without it. Who would turn down the opportunity to have an enormous resource like this at their fingertips from the comfort of their home?
Soo ... In a nutshell, I like to fix PCs, build them, optimize the operating system, make special purpose computers, get rid of malware, and do lots of homebrew stuff I find on the interwebz. LOL. Lots of other stuff too, anything I find that tickles my techy bone.
Recently I have also gotten interested in the Green Movement and seeking out solutions for my home in Solar Energy, Recycling, Repurpose, or Reuse of raw or waste materials, Alternative Energy Production, and of course I always love a good HOWTO so I can save $$$ on Home Projects!
I work as a Freelance Computer Repair Technician for my local area and depend on word of mouth referrals at this time.
