hihi, I’m Joseph, American, permanent resident in Australia since 1974, retired engineer, 10 years in broadcasting, 10 in computers. My first data processing course was on IBM dinotech in 1962.
I didn’t actually work in the computer field until about 1986, a forced career shift (hostile takeovers are vicious.) As a roving troubleshooter, I’ve worked on minicomputers, obsolete gear you wouldn’t believe was still in use, the most unusual assignment was fixing a church organ on one of the smaller islands of the Samoan group.
My '98 attempt at RedHat was another epic failure. Somebody shoved a Dapper Drake in my hands in 2006 and I’ve stuck with Ubuntu. For me, the computer is just a production tool. I’m co-authoring a visual novel with an internet friend in Spain. So I’m also studying ren’py, python, and also building my web site dedicated to one VN game released 22 September 2017 …
Oh. I’m also on Steam as xae-chan.
