By golly by gosh, this bio is amazingly old. I've been gone a long time. Today is December 21, 2014.
Built my own PIII 1 gig yonks ago. The poor baby died. With #2 son, built a new comp based on 680iLTSLI MB in Jan '08. Built wife a new comp January 2010 (my first encounter with bent pins on a mobo). Have discovered the peril of Vista Ultimate and 207 MS Office Suite. Am a fan of Open Office. Wanting to go 64 bit, but probably not for another year.
Been inside a few machines. Win 95 and Win 98 (& hazy memories of 3.1) & XP Pro. Not a Mac man. Have F-disked occasionally. Dealt with recalcitrant wireless crudola, and DOS games that drive Win 98 nuts. Eudora has been our email program since the mid 90's.
In Real Life, admin (non-IT) in a distance education program.
