I guess I should tell you a little about myself.
Hi, my name is Dave, and I like to, uh, take things apart and put them back together…differently. It started when I was a kid, taking things apart to see how they worked; then having my father put them back together. Usually when a toy got broken, or I got bored with it; it would get recycled into something else. I had RC cars with only 2 wheels, toy guns that would launch beans and oodles of other toys that were modified in some way. Boy, you should have seen my G.I. Joe collection when I figured out that all the body parts were interchangeable between the dolls!
Then I grew up, got a job at a Fortune 50 company, got married and became a homeowner. The married part is the most important. You see, I am attention defecit. It takes an exceptional woman to be with a man like me, and my wife acts like the bumpers you put up for little kids at the bowling alley. Every time I start to go off course, she bumps me back in the right direction. It helps some projects get finished, and others- well, it keeps them in check.
My main job occupation is Systems Support for a company. My business on the side is technology related. But my hobby and passion is TINKERING! I love fooling with anythingthat I can fool with. I love woodworking, electronics, stonework, home improvement, cars, RC cars, photography, computers, robotics, programming…nearly everything is on the books. Usually what happens is I stumble upon somthing on the ‘net, then I geek it out; hardcore. Then leads to a project or two, or in the case of my photography some expense. In the end I gain a general knowledge of a subject and new entry to my list of ‘things I can do’. Sometimes they develop into a full blown hobby.
So to summarize, I am a Geek. A hardcore Geek. I geek out on everything, and I kinda like it like that…
