I was a Machinist for 35+ years, but an injury has made me a full time Home Boy.

I always loved messing with computers (My first was a Tandy HX) it worked but I soon outgrew it.

Those were the days 14.4 modem, Prodigy, CompuServe, and BBC's where the hot spots.

Now I have a few other things:

Asus Ultra book Core i5, 500gb HD ,24gb SSD

Sony notebook Core i5 500GB Dual Band WiFi card

Apple I Book G4 Fun to mess with

Dell P4 2.8 ghz which i am using scavenged parts to try and setup a media server i hope (10 HD's so far)

But my new job is my wife and her health so all the above is when i have time, very little.

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy
