Greetings from Texas


My experience is hit and miss with computers. From 1986 through 1989 (high school)my experience was very active. Yes I know that was FOREVER AGO and trust me I am feeling it. In 89 I married my first girlfriend and 8 days later I went to Army Basic Training. In 1997 I started a CIS degree at a community college, which only added basic, VB, and COBOL to my list of RPG 1 & 2, PASCAL, FORTRAN. Halloween of 2011 I retired via medical discharge and last year started a Cyber Security degree. Mind you this is with a wife, 4 kids, 4 grand kids all milling around. I did learn DOS which ends up confusing me in this LINUX class.
Forgive the simplicity of my posts, as I am sure they will be no brainers for 99.99% of the members here. Sometimes my disabilities makes me not catch on as quick as the next, but once I have it, I have it.
Thanks for any and all assistance and I look forward to working with everyone willing to take on the task.

same here.
i was vaguely interested as a young boy (BASIC, C64 etc.), but completely forgot about that once the hormones started their work.
in the early 90s i studied some computer stuff, but then didn't really follow up.
my already outdated 386 machine gave out a few years later, and since then i didn't even own a computer until ~20 years later - a few hand-me-down laptops and windows XP reinstalls later, i finally saw the light of gnu/linux, in its shuttleworthy incarnation. been getting increasingly hooked ever since then.

anyhow, welcome to LQ.
