I taught myself C++ several years ago but haven't used it in several years either. So, I thought I would try java now. Got my computer setup and watching a video series and reading a book on java. After that I'll start trying the code. Will start looking at code and see if I can figure out what it does. Once I get a grasp of it I may start writing some myself.

Yeah, I was upset at first because all these strangers were in my house. After I found out who they were, I kind of started liking them. They were nice.

There IS such a thing as responsible gun ownership. I know it's difficult for some people to understand, but not every gun owner goes on an unprovoked shooting spree. There are guns in my house...there's a revolver my grandfather was issued by the Italian armed forces, around 1934 (I think) when he enlisted, and after he defected from the Italian army, renounced his Italian citizenship & emigrated to the States, that revolver was in his luggage when he came here in '37; there's a breakaway shotgun my grandfather used (here, not in Italy) to hunt rabbit in upstate New York during the '40s and '50s; my father's sidearm that he was issued during boot camp (he served in Vietnam); and there's also a large-caliber handgun that once belonged to my late uncle Tony. All the guns are older than I am, and I have no clue when any of them were last fired, or even if any of them still fire. I've never held, let alone fired any of them, because I lack the proper training to fire a gun. The guns are not laying around the house, but rather locked in a gun safe. In the event that someone breaks in, I have no intention to play Wyatt Earp & turn my mother's living room into a shooting gallery. Any break in would trigger the house alarm, and our house, being old, has a fallout shelter which we can use as a panic room. Being human, I have of course been angry at times, who hasn't? But no matter how angry I get, the thought of "going home to get my gun" is ludacris. First of all, if I were to shoot everyone I was ever angry with, I would've shot half the neighborhood already. Second, I wouldn't look good in one of those orange prison jumpsuits.

And if you're black and Republican, you're racist against yourself. Dem Party has been incoherent for a long time.

I have been running 5.0.1 for awhile and have the connectivity sound ringtone on. I noticed sometimes it didn't work. After checking I found out after a reboot the ringtone reset to just random numbers. I would have to set it again.

Some call me crazy, some call me lazy, some say I'm a fool but hey that's cool. I'm just me.
Introduction
I am transplanted to Washington State from Arkansas. It is a different world here. But I enjoy it..
I like to listen to all kinds of music, am a computer geek from the start, like to read, and since 2007 have really become interested in politics. (Should have paid more attention earlier in my life I guess.)
Old school, pocket protector toting, nerd/geek first computer I ever repaired was a C-64 (Commodore 64).
Bragging rights
Living with my daughter and helping raise my three grand kids. Also, taught myself HTML, C, and C+ back in the day. Haven't been using it much lately.Would like to learn to use Linux OS. UPDATE: Not living with daughter any longer. Her and the kids moved to Va.
