Sounds grander than it is - worked for 30 years for Commercial Companies developing and supporting industrial software.
Early days of computing were exciting and challenging. The introduction of all singing all dancing applications, one stop solutions (i.e. SAP) took the edge out of it for me so retired at the grand age of 55.
Soon got bored and now back in work, part time, and not IT related.
Like to keep computer work to hobbyist now - just as well as I cannot understand most of it.
If family members get in trouble I try and help them out obviously and if I cannot then Google can. Quite often the answer is found within these pages.
I have become a member though because I have identified an issue that, it would appear, there is no known answer - even Google, despite 100's of pages on the topic, has no solution to offer.
