user name is : thomas1gun, am turning 60 this June.
my user-name refers 2 my tongue, because IT forms the words my mind thinks of,
alot of folks do not know that what they say, (out of their own mouths),
comes true for them. "I" have found this to be extremely true in my own life.
amazing little known facts are my joys, anymore. no-one to occupy my attention span or life, in now 18 yrs.
so, durring that time have devoted my-self to various educational pursuits, (with-out going to college),
After having Driven "Over-The-Road" Heavey Trucks across America for 27 yrs. I now, am not allowed to
Drive any-thing, because of medical condition of my body, But my mind is still active, Hence the "educational Pursuits".
my basic pc set-up is Now : Linux/Debian/Ubuntu, running Deb as base sys.
done the win7 thing, all the way to 'Ultimate', it was still to restricktive for me. in creative ways. not in my mind, but in
the Programs designed to keep me on 'one' train of thought, while using win7. so I got off that merry-go-round.
use Firefox as a browser & protection while on the net. I am NOT a Tech in any way, shape, or form. I do compile
some "things", almost always for public use, Have only purchased > 2 < PC's, ever, using one now, (been using
Free-Builds of my own, out of throw away piles, since 2002. U'd b amazed at what folks throw away).
The other one, is my problem & I'll ask that question in anotther topic area. Grew up in Florida, when Disney was
secretly buying all the swamp land in Central-FLa. 9 yrs later, construction began & I joined the service,
that was 6 yrs spent in one train of thought, luckily, my dad, made me get a Class "A" Truck Drivers license,
when 16, with this in mind : "as long as your license is Clean, with NO mis-haps, you will always find 'work' & he was correct",
so when I got out of the service(was Driver In Service, as well), was fairly easy to land a job. Finding some-one who was
Honest as an Employer was almost impossible, so stuck to major corps. never killed any-one in an accident,
thank GOD & had three. none my fault as testified by Highway Patrols as 1st to arrive at scenes. anyway that's
my life as it stands to-day in a nutshell. am glad to make y'all's aquaintence.
I'll close out with this thought for everyone : never-give-up, no matter the endeavor. t1g thank you for future experiences, before hand.
