October Update

Hello all,

Sorry things have been busy lately. I'm taking an online course at Fitchburg State CSC 1050 Internet Communications and learning a lot. Believe it or not this is my first "real" college course in computers. I've been into computers since my first PC back in 1982 the IBM 5150 (8088) and have been self taught with computers since. I'm and old DOS guy but worked with all windows from windows 286 up to now Windows 8 and switched over to linux since Ubuntu 8, never going back to windows again, lol. 

For those of you who need to feel nostalgic check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnSz-Hb9LQY BBS the documentary. I actually owned and ran a BBS myself back in the early 90's and my number was 617 826 7134. I still run a radio packet station with ham radio at 1200 baud and connect to the N1RCW Packet BBS

Well enough ranting got to get back to work.
