...but am tickled pink that you folks are here to share my woes.


An 80 year-old ex IT professional (Oracle database administrator, C programmer, etc.) and Naval Aviator (Yorktown, Hancock, Shangri-La, Cubi Point), I'm resigned to being retired from all useful work, but not overjoyed.  Thanks for welcoming me - I hope to strain your minds of useful information in trade for the moths and weevils remaining in this senile mind.

Welcome. You just might have some fun here. You seem like a very "fun" guy.

SillyOpaJim   :love4u:


Just found your "here I am" thread!  First off...with your resume, I don't believe that you have resigned to retire! Goodness me, with all you have done and will continue to do, all of us can be tickled pink you're here!


I'm also thinking that if you indeed are an "Opa"..that would mean younger grandkids that no doubt embrace all of your knowledge when IT was really groovy and they are teaching you how to Skype and Twitter!


Pleasure to see you in the house.  I'll look for your posts and smile!
