greetings folks! i just figured how to post a new topic. that's how NEW i am!!! my initial setting i've set to allow Admin AND members to reply to my email. i was a member before but i don't remember what ID i cooked up back then - 2 yrs ago? i know i didn't post anything, lol.
i should be more sophisticated cuz i started programming in Fortran in '69 but i've been in-out of the industry & haven't been prof'ly involved since '07 and even then it was minimal. i've always said, "if you haven't been involved professionally for the last 6 months then u don't know nuthin' cuz it changes so radically!"
besides, i have a mental disorder(schizoaffective disorder) that blanks out my "mind" at any given time for an unknown length of time. so much for a 137 IQ. whoopie! i used to love programming, setting up spreadsheet macros, photoshop activity and autocad activity. now i have probs with new laptops and printers just going haywire.
i help out at a church whenever i can and i have bare scrape-bottom funds that barely pay my rent and storage fees. i do get medical and food assistance but i'm so ??? that i don't use them to great advantage. my recall is low functioning also. there was a time i wrote eloquently but now my instant-use vocabulary is minimal. i can't even think of the words to effectively say what i'm saying right now... alas, i lament.
if i don't do a thing on a daily or frequent basis i'll have forgotten it in a short span of time. my mood/attitude swings greatly also. bi-polar? or something like that. i also cry 4 no reason at the drop of a hat. depression? who knows... i luv just sitting out in the park or waterfront contemplating things. no expenditure of energy. so much for my rock climbing/scuba/10k/half marathon days.
in a previous life, surely u no i jest, i was a naval officer & was the physical readiness officer and thought, "if i ever get in the condition that i am actually in right now, i'd throw in my chips and punch out." which is a military term for commit suicide. but don't worry, those thoughts just flit thru my mind for a teeny fraction of a second. i never really consider driving a van off an over-pass crasshing into rush hour traffic. it just sounds "spectacular" like the fitting end of an adventure flick.
hey, i just noticed this might be some decent stuff for pulp fiction. well, maybe not. so i'll just be trolling thru looking at some interesting topics and maybe add my 2 cents worth of humor. who knows?
that's me. that's it.
