camping, hiking, fishing, backpacking, boating, scuba diving, flying, 4-wheeling, horseback riding, swimming, exploring ...
Also UNIX, Linux, VPN, telecommunications, travel, notebooks and remote operations.
I am a good public speaker, teacher and presenter too!
Knowledge hogs. I love to share knowledge. This business is all about learning and growing. I do not care for those who hoard information and keep it to themselves. I like to share, when it is appropriate, and am fully supportive of the open source philosophy.
I like camping, hiking, backpacking ... being in the wilderness ... I love playing my guitar, writing music, thinking ... I like reading, writing especially, stories, poems, and songs ... I love to travel and explore with my wife. My favorite times are quiet evenings in front of a fireplace, a campsite sitting in front of the campfire ... sipping coffee while watching the rain ... or just taking in a movie or DVD with my wife ...
English, Spanish (em poco), Klingon (in-work study)
shell scripts, batch files, html
If you want something you have never had, you have to do something you have never done.
I am a BIG music fan with a wide range of interests. My favorite are probably country, the blues, and jazz - because when you are singing them they are the easiest to add-lib on-the-fly. I like country, rock, some disco, and ballads. I love Christian music. When I am working on the computer, though, techno is my favorite. Somehow it keeps me focused.
|Favourite tv shows:|
Today there is very little worth watching on television. I do enjoy a good episode of Star Trek Voyager or Next Generation now and then. My favorites are probably the Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel, The Travel Channel, and Animal Planet!
My favorite movie is with Anthony Hopkins ... he gets stranded in the northern frontier, and he has to help those with him to survive - all the while as they avoid a very, very hungry grisly bear!
My favorite part? the music. You can feel the cold, the wind, the environment ... just through the music.
After that one, it would have to be:
MONTE WALSH (a western)
The BIBLE, naturally! I do have a large collection of technical books, most of which I am converting to my iPad so they are readily available, and on-hand.
I am a hopeless romantic! I write poetry, short stories, and songs. I love rainy and foggy days. I like to take walks with my wife through nature, go camping with her in the outdoors, and take my Jeep and go places we really cannot go in a normal car.
I love to sit in the woods and listen to the raindrops after a rain as they slowly drip from the leaves, in the quiet of the woods.
My feelings run deep - really deep. My values are true, solid, black-and-white. My commitments are true, as well. I am a believer in absolutes. When I am your friend, there are no grey areas with me - you are my friend, period.
That survives all attacks, all obstacles, and all that we may go through. I am not perfect, but my beliefs are solid, deep-rooted, and of honor and character. These are what keep me grounded, as a friend, and as a person ... and they are what bring me back when I stray or fall short.

An IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad T-61, 14-inch display, extra battery life, webcam, bluetooth, WWAN, wifi, etc. running openSUSE LINUX and KDE (and GNome), with VirtualBox sessions of Windows XP, Windows 7, Solaris, MS-DOS, etc.
I also play around with my wife\'s Macbook Pro (Mac OSx/Mountain Lion) trying to decide what to use as my primary OS. (I really want it to be LINUX, but many features only work with Windows [out of the question] and MacOSx)
In my computer lab (The Man Cave), I have several servers, PCs, and equipment.
LINUX (openSUSE, Ubuntu), UNIX (Solaris, MacOSx), and sometimes Windows
