Hello,

I'm Gary.  Day after tomorrow, I'm taking my CompTIA A+, 801 @ 9:15, 802 @ 13:00.  I'm trembling. We live rurally and I'll be the only certified tech in the county (fingers crossed).  My first computer job was in 1974.  It was a 200 pounder that did artillery trajectories.  I was actually faster and more acurate with a slide rule and a slip stick.  I worked applicon CAD in a basement at Moffit for a bit on a PDP 1134, ACAD on a Sun, SunOS 3.x and Sparc,whatever, for a while.  I thought Windows was nothing more than a fad.  Still do.  While studying this past year, I've accummulated 6 systems, running 10 OSs. Sorry no Macs.  Sore subject.  All I really want to do is go freelance to keep myself flying. That's another passion that's never paid for itself.  By next June, I'll also have a degree in Graphics Design. Hopefully, by then I won't feel so stupid.

 

Knowledge, it seems, like beauty, is fleeting.  What once were axioms, become humorous anctidotes; Those "WTF were we thinking" moments that eventually replace what we once "knew" for "certain".  Every time I beleive I know, the subject schools me further.  Informatiom entropy.  The answers we find, only pose new questions.

 

Sorry, I get like this when I'm nervous.  I'll try to pitch in when I can.  Mostly, all I got is questions.

 

Q 0:  Where and how the frill did you guys learn all this stuff?

 

Thanks for help that you don't know you've already given,

 

Gary
