Default Hi--just a old fart saying Hi

been monkeying around with computers starting with my commadore 64-put off getting a real computer because I didnt,at the time, feel that they were anything better than my commadore. Been doing tech support for these newer computers for the last 14 years.
Nothing special-Just doing what I found very interesting after cutting hair for 17 yr. (Had my own shop) Next to the Del Mar race track.
Was recently cleaning out the garage and finally threw out the 8088 machine (still working). It had been in the way tooooo long. Hurt to disgard it, but was consistenly in the way-taking up room that was needed for other things.
I live too much in the past-got to keep looking forward.

Welcome to the forum.

Maybe we should form an old pharts club? I've been messing with these evil machines since I got an IBM PC in 1984!
