Because of all the Christopher J. Osburns out there getting into legal problems (including killing people and dying and being busted for weed and disorderly conduct) I have come up with a Plan.

I will go out and buy a title of nobility.  I will cause my name to be legally changed to Lord Christopher Osburn.  And if anyone wants a piece of me after that, THEY CAN SWIM MY MOAT.

That is all.

PUBLIC DISCLOSURE:

In 2012, I gave rides to 29331 people.  (Yes, I counted them.)  In return, my fellow citizens paid me $19777.10 for my work.  The driving, not the counting.  You got that gratis.

If we coat them in lead will the NRA step in to protect them?

Unfollowed everyone I don't know personally.  Nothing personal.  Mostly this was because I just got a text message from my wife and some stranger's picture was attached.  This is Google's bug to fix, of course, but until/unless they do, it's too weird for me.  Have a good day!

Story

Postprofessional Geek
Introduction
The title is post-professional geek.

That means, I've had it with working in hi-tech.

But it doesn't mean I've had it with playing in hi-tech.  And lo-tech.  And everything in between.

  • I collect slide rules (over 100) and interesting calculators
  • I am a radio operator (KD7DVD WPOL413 WDF5609 PGGB069996)
  • I am a retrocomputerist (VMS/VAX and Alpha, RSTS/E, TOPS-20, CP/M, TRS-80 Model 100)
  • I am a writer (I made enough in royalties to get myself drunk)
  • For spending money, I drive an electric trolleybus for King County

Education
  • Colorado College
    Math+CompSci, 1986 - 1990
  • Benson Polytechnic High School
    Electronics, 1978 - 1982
  • Oregon Institute of Technology
    Owl Mascot, 1982 - 1983
