I have been a computer programmer (Software Engineer) since the early 80's. I got my first computer in 1978, a TRS-80 Model 1. I had an electronics repair shop for a while, repairing TVs and VCRs - along with other things people brought in to my shop. I am also an Extra class Ham radio operator, but not very active anymore. Now I am looking forward to retirement in about 2 1/2 years.

New guy here in central Texas.

Dunno about brilliant...:rolleyes: 35 years land surveying. Retired. Last 16 years of my working life spent in the office designing residential subdivisions mostly.

For starters, I'll be shoving an Ace 400 around. Wanted to stay within a certain price point, and Bingo the 400 + carrot & accys. was right there, basically. I did exceed my drop-dead price by a couple of shekels.



Man of a thousand hobbies...well OK maybe only 900-ish

I am a maintenance tech, with robotics and trained to work on up 13KV for a major grocery manufacture for the last 19 years. Wife is a RN. She wanted to go dirt fishin for the last few years and I wasn't on board with it much. Decided to jump in the kool-aid and got us Ace 300 and 400 for Christmas. She has it bad, been on me all week since we haven't been out since Saturday. I can say I didn't think I would get the bug as bad as I have also. Even tho in just the short time we have been detecting(early Dec 2018) we haven't found anything much to write about, we truly do have a great time out looking together! From cruising the forums I must be lucky having my best friend/wife that's into it as much if not more than I am.

I have just taken up this hobby this past Christmas 2018. Where to begin? 73 years old, high school grad, vocational school, no college due to money. At age 17, I went to work for what was then Southern Bell Telephone & Telegraph Co. I worked there 35 years with 6 job titles. Frameman, Lineman, Installer-repairman, PBX installer-repairman, Toll Testing Technician & Electronics Technician. I have worked on U.S. Air Force communications systems for SAC, TAC, Radar Approach Control, Control Tower communications as well as big name retailers in the southeast. I loved the jobs but I got burned out with all of the operational changes toward the end. Married 53 years next month (same gal), two daughters, two granddaughters and a grandson. And friend, let me tell you they named them right when the put "GRAND" in front of the noun. I am an expert at nothing but am self taught in a lot of technical jobs. Welding, plumbing, wiring, auto repair, body work, building construction and on and on. I love working with both my mind and my hands. I have had my run-in with cancer and hope to die of old age. Of course, I could write a book here but if you are still reading this you might think I was a bragging jerk by now. The man asked or I would have kept this to myself. So, I'll say nuff said. I hope you find a gold coin this coming week.
