Default Time On My Hands

Hi folks. I've been into computers for 26 years now. My first rig was a 486 with 8MB of RAM and a 14.4 modem. My how times have changed. I was a single dad and taught special education for years. I drove truck for 10 years until a heart attack disqualified me from driving. After a year of recovery I went to work for the post office and within 2 years became a rural post office manager. During that time I had 4 more heart attacks (same condition that former Vice President Cheney has) and now am on disability. I love computers and working on them and want to help others as well as get advise for my own sticky problems.

Outside of computers I like fishing, camping, photography, my family, and my Lord.
