^^This is the problem with LJ, we all think we are so close, and we know nothing about each other. I'm going to rectify it. I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me, something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.
(Optional) Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.^^
At the moment? It's a toss-up between surviving the Nuvox layoff by starting my own business from scratch on zero notice, or the FreeBSD wiki I created and manage. ( http://www.freebsdwiki.net
- a sort of encyclopedic volume of "how to administer and maintain FreeBSD servers.")
A little from column A, a little from column B. I did plan to go to college with money earned from the Navy (which really wasn't very feasible with what money was available from the military for college back then, as it turned out) but my life plan also included being in the Guard after my enlistment was up so I could retire from the military after 20 years, at all of 37 years old.
Problem was, after six years of the Navy, it turned out that one weekend a month is about five days a month more than I was willing to devote to the Navy anymore. So it was like "fuck that." So no retirement, and also no college. Poor life choices, in retrospect, but shit, they're the ones I made, and things seem to be settling down pretty nicely now. Better late than never. =)
