I started this blog around 2014 – there is probably a time-stamp on my first post…
Just wanted an online place where I could collect the endless things that seem to collect and I want to find them.
Slowly uploading the Tanach, formatted in a way that makes it easy for me to understand…
I started trying to crack the computer puzzle in a serious manner in around ’96 I guess when I realized that the world was rolling unstop-ably in that direction and it seemed like it was the only way to pay the growing bills of having a family.
It seems that I am on the direction of rambling on about how I got to the computer when I should probably write something about myself.
Love my wife and kids; Talia, Shimmy, Boaz, Emma and Ziv.
My wife tells me that I am egocentric, and she is always right.
I have a Mechanical Engineering degree.
I have finished an Ironman triathlon.
I love to play guitar and clarinet, and can “play by ear” on the clarinet, but still have not attacked either of these venues with guided discipline.
Actually guided discipline is an area that needs work by me. I have an immense amount of self-discipline, but this is necessarily different. Hmm.
A timeline of life events: hopefully will fill out over time…
