I have to apologize to my readers..

I have not been doing what I had intended to do.  Most of what I write has to do with viewpoint I have picked up over the years due to my experience.

Online I started about 1985 or 1986 with a BBS system called The Playhouse.  I had 3 phone lines an the software was the Major BBS.  I had this BBS until about 1997, November, when my hard drive quit and I had to look for another job.

Later, in a crass capitalistic fervor I would start up the non-profit, though this status was unintentional,  web site “Information Showroom” that lasted until another period my my having not money.

Later I would go with Word Press on my site ThatJoeGuy.com, which is still there.

Now I have MyViewbyJoe.com.

My apology has to do with my not producing as much material as I had intended.  I just look at my user list and have 223 registered subscribers, and I thank them all.

This computer, which I use to submit articles to the site, is a Windows Vista machine.  I have had periodic failures of the hard drive that require frequent use of the check disk program and Advanced System Care.  Recently the whole thing got so bad that I could only login to Windoz in safe mode.  The normal  mode, for some strange reason, would decide that it did not like my password, which, of course, is the same as under safe mode which did accept it.

Windows could not tell me what was wrong with it.

Now I can get into Vista in normal mode, but it won’t recognize either the network or sound…  something about dependency groups not being able to start.

When I first started having this last batch of problem I put Linux Ubuntu on my system, and that is how I am running it now..

If anyone notice that I was not putting out articles, or even cared, this is my apology.


That Joe Guy.

Ex SSgt in Air Force Security Police... I had 10 years of active duty and inactive reserve. I have a total of 20 years, includes Air Force SP, security experience. I also worked 8 years and 4 months in the Garden Center of the Sarasota Cattleman Walmart. I also took the CCNA class at Sarasota Vo-Tech, when it was still called that. I am now, since 2010 a caregiver for my Mother. While I am now a registered Republican I am more likely to vote for whichever person I believe will do a better job.. In the last presidential elections I voted Libertarian, as I the two main choices seemed to be between lying crook, or an uncouth babler who could not be trusted.
