Hello, I live in NH.

Former computer teacher and computer consultant for a high school and middle school. Eventually I matriculated to just teach computer science and all the fun software available in a public school. The basics, advanced and creative stuff... I was also an art teacher.

I actually designed animation courses for 3 schools. They were very popular!

At first, they thought I was nuts... "You mean cartoons?" they asked. "Sure," I replied. "Why not animated reports kids can bring to the classroom, such as math, science, etc... and home to show mom and dad?" Eyes rolled. I had to be nuts. But then I was given a budget to do it.

It was difficult... mostly done with hardware I had to find to make it work and a piece of software created by Disney. This was in 1992. Times improved as did the software. Some or my students are now professional animators.

And... wouldn't you know? Power Point came on the scene... WOW... animated reports... who would have thought? ;-)

Now, newly retired I want to work on my sooo very, very, very slow modem connected computer to eeek a living... we live in the mountains where a cable connection is not possible!

Not having done tech support for a few years and glad to leave it to the :thumbsup: then school's new "tech department," I am now dealing with issues popping up on my personal PC.


So, I look forward to working with your members.

Se ya!
