      Just an old tech geek learning new tricks

  • About

    I am a 60 year old tech geek, hearkening back to the days before mice and a GUI. From 1995-1998, was a certified Novell Advanced Admin (NOT a "paper" cert! I earned it with my arms elbow-deep in hardware) PC builder/installer/troubleshooter and PC desktop OS (Win 1.x thru Win 3.? w/networking) and OS/2 (God save us from IBM, please!) support tech.

    I was also an Application Support Specialist, and Novell GroupWise 4.x & 5.x Admin w/5000+ users in the Clark County (Las Vegas), Nevada County Government. I had only my last two exams (the big ones) to pass to have earned my Engineer cert. I then left the big city, moved to the Midwest to prepare for the aftermath of Y2K.

    I considered it not simply a potentially serious threat, but also a Golden opportunity to rebuild community control of our country from the trash heap of centralized control in D.C. There was not a more disappointed man in America by Jan 2nd, 200 than I. So, I became an Independent Owner/Operator, driving my own 18-wheeler hauling freight. Successfully I might add, until the economy tanked in Q1 of 2009.

    That being said, I am able to grasp most of what I am learning about taking Root and modifying some, but not all of functions of the smartphone animal.

    PC's, reading, fishing


    Old Spotlight Operators never die.........they just fade out.
