Howdy from Tennessee. Long story less long. I was living a happy(and somewhat tech lazy) life with my 2002 iMac running OS X 10.3.9 when an EMP killed my computer. Having forgotten my lesson from using Windows 98 and not having the money for another Mac my wife and I bought a new HP laptop at Wally World with Windows 8 on it. Even running anti-virus the system picked up a Trojan and borked within a week so I returned it to WalMart for a full refund and used the funds to buy two older laptops and installed Ubuntu 12.04LTS on em'. My wife is still running Ubuntu on her Compaq CQ57 but after a bit of Dirtro Hopping I've settled in with Linux Mint 15 MATE on my little HP nc6400. Anyway, my Mac dying was actually a blessing since it's gotten me off of my butt and back into tech. I'm watching as many tech shows as I can get on my Roku. Tekzilla, Catagory 5, Hak5, ect. and I'm really lovin' it. Many times what's said goes totally over my head but I figure that if I learn it then someday it'll make sense so I just keep on watching and learning as much as I can. I've been unemployed for almost 4 years but with my new found tech knowlege I'd love to try and get a job in the tech market if I can since I do have a Technical background. Anyway, just wanted to stop in and say "Howdy" and I'll see ya'll on the forums.
