I am an old Techie that worked for the same high tech service company through mergers, name changes and spin offs for 48+ years. When I started the Tech life the Chip was new... Back then a fast dual trace oscilloscope and a good mind were the tools to fix most anything.
Along the way I spent 4 years in Asia with the U.S. Air Force working on C-130E aircraft during Vietnam.
My wife and I are blessed with two sons and four grand children and they bring a lot of joy to our lives. We are both active with the American Legion Post at Love Field in Dallas TX. Now that I have retired I will be able to volunteer more.
Teasers... Are you old enough to know Baudot code ? Or where the Baud in 1200 Baud modem came from ?

I have been working on distributive computing projects since May of 1999 I have enjoyed watching the concept grow and mature into it's current form.
Learning and growing is part of the human nature so we should not limit the What or Where in the process.
