To those whom it may concern; I am getting up, and pushing myself, more and more every day, and I have more and more (mental, as well as physical!) energy every single day, almost, and am largely afraid that my reach will soon exceed my grasp in every way (not necessarily a good thing)!

I am already wishing that I had a pool here, and would go through the hoops right now, necessary to renew (or recover, on the odd chance that I am still an active member!; Hell; insurance might cover it, as a "cheaper than Rehab" option!) my 24 Hour fitness membership, if I knew when it will be needed (and had a reliable way to get there!!). But as is, my "official" rehab will probably (re)start in earnest in the next week or so, it is sounding like!

A big round of thanks to +Casey Clough and +Turtle Inferno, for sticking with me through all of this, and a special big thanks to my mother, +Jean Masco, for totally rocking at taking care of me, sometimes in spite of myself!

Some good news!
Bruce Schneier is a telepath of unimaginable power. That's the only possible explanation for the stunning reversal at the top of the Transportation Security

Some people can give you the Evil Eye. Bruce Schneier just gives you the Evil Earful.

Not too shocking - SMS from G+ gets to Google Voice fine. I did not assume that they would, though.

For those who don't know ; I am currently in rehab, for brain damage incurred following heart surgery.

Currently, I am only posting and actively reading on that Book of Faces...and only reading and posting there intermittently. Over there, ask to join Team Cactus, if you want updates...

We now return you to your regularly-scheduled Google+...

Oh, thank you, man, but I have everything I need! If you will be in the neighborhood of Central TX any time soon, it would be great to see you, though! Keep it mind, for the future, too!

I'm gratified that more of my friends have added Diaspora* than have added Google+, as a result of the recent Facebook changes (if you want an invitation to the Diaspora* pod that I'm on, diasp.org, let me know).

Let me know when it doesn't require a million tweaks and quorbles to get it to work right. I don't want something I need to "customize," I just want something that works.

So I think it's time to redefine the meaning of the term "Rickrolled"...

He really oughta give it up, he's only gonna let us down.
He's only gonna run around and hurt us.
He's only gonna make us cry, he really oughta say goodbye.
He's only tell us lies, and desert us.

Story
Tagline
Well... Todd's just this guy, you know?
Introduction
I grew up in the Tampa Bay Area, where I went to high school at a nice school called, "Berkeley Prep." I then went to college at a little technical school in Pittsburg called, "Carnegie Mellon," where I got my BS in Physics. After graduating, I moved to New York City, where I founded a company called, " Hell's Kitchen Systems", which I then moved back to Pittsburgh... After a couple years' struggling, we were acquired by another company called Red Hat ( you might have heard of their primary product, Red Hat Linux ), at which point we were moved to North Carolina... After 2 years of working at Red Hat, I left and returned "hone" to Florida, where my mother was struggling to keep the business, an assisted living facility called Forest Glen Lodge, afloat after my father passed away in a car accident, ten years prior. I essentially took the business over from her, got it turner around, and sold in roughly 2005....whereupon I could choose any place in the work that I wanted to live, and so I chose Austin...! After that, I then founded a company called "Pocket Dyne," which was working on a product when disaster struck! I had always known that, one day, I would have to get heart surgery for a birth defect, and that day had arrived... I got it, and it went bad, leaving my brain anoxic for roughly 14 minutes...! So, ever since then I have been in rehab, first in-patient at a rehab facilit, and then at home from an outfit named, "Rehab Without Walls,," which ended roughly 3 months ago ( at the end of May, 2015 ). Ever since then, I have been undergoing a self-directed recovery plan, of essentially gaming and reading a lot, anything to keep my brain working and engaged!
