    Cool Hello from Shreveport, LA

    Hello!

    Been on the Internet since it was ARPANET. Disabled Veteran of the US Navy, Disabled/retired Sr. Programmer/Analyst specialized in integrating business databases with the Internet.

    I have raced motorcycles since I was 9, raced stock cars since 15, SCCA since my 20s, a certified Master Mechanic, been a 50kw FM Classic Rock DJ, played drums in Funk/Blues Classic Rock bands all across Louisiana, Arkansas and VA, been a computer geek since the IBM PC hit the streets and a gun owner/shooter since I was in single digits.

    These days I live in a recliner on the Internet or out in my wheelchair listening to bands or shooting when I can. I am very active in the support of the Constitution and particularly the Second Amendment and am the VP of the Louisiana Open Carry Awareness League as well as the Shreveport Area Chapter President!

    Welcome from your neck of the woods. Sure enjoyed the talk last night. Look forward to meeting you in person as well as seeing some of your postings on here.

    Welcome to the forum from Texas. You've chosen wisely - this is a great place to learn and to share. Thank you for your service to our country.

    How were you able to get your recliner on the Internet? Or is that a secret from the ARPANET days?
