I was born May 1, 1955, in Dr Robinson's clinic, Homerville, GA. Strangely enough, I've been alive ever since, for slightly over fifty-one years now. In that time I've developed quite an interest in computers, of all things. As my boat has just come in, (a dinghy, of course) I'm about to fulfill a decades- long desire to build (or, alternately, destroy the parts of) my very first self-assembled computer! Of course, computers are dreadfully useless without software, so I'm also in the process of learning how to really foul up, uh, I mean write, yes that's it, write my own computer programs! Now, if I only knew why this makes me indescribably, deliriously happy!?
