Mike have you nothing better to do with your time? Do you honestly think
that it really matters one way or another?
Spend some time in the real world once in a while, you might like it

Once again, your unending ignorance is showing. You know not one
damn thing about me, yet you continue to make these false assumptions.
I spend as much time in "The real world" as my health and disabilities
allow. (Anywhere from 15 to 30 hours a week.)

I spend most of my time collecting and repairing computer equipment
that I give away, for free, to deserving people. I do not chase every
dollar, like you. I have over 40 years experience in designing, building
and repairing electronics. Some that you will never see, unless you go
into space. I have worked in Broadcast, CATV, two way radio, Commercial
sound and high end telemetry. I troubleshot hundreds of MC68340 based
embedded controllers without any of the toys you push. A Tektronics
2465B 4 Ch scope and knowledge of the chipsets used allowed me to find
the problems in minutes. I have repaired over 1000 early COmmodore,
Tandy, Apple and other 8 bit computers over the years without needing a
logic analyzer. In fact, most of the early ones were repaired with a
$10 logic probe, and a 500 KHz single channel triggered scope. I dumped about 100 intact Bally and other video game cards in the trash about ten years ago. Some bozo was offering me about 15 cents per board. I figured that if that was all he was willing to pay, they weren't worth storing any longer. Hell, I was paying more than that per month to warehouse them. You are a greedy and selfish ass who wants everything your way. Well, tough luck, Art. It isn't going to happen in this lifetime. -- Service to my country? Been there, Done that, and I've got my DD214 to prove it. Member of DAV #85. Michael A.

A #### Art M - Artfromny Jan 1, 1970 0 Too bad I didnt know you when I got in a mess of IBM reel-reel drives - refrigerator sized - went with whatever was the commercial version of the 7090 (7080?) Next time I get a few pallets of vintage mainframe stuff in I will spam your newsgroup and if you pay shipping you can have it all - cheaper for me than trashing it. Then again if youre talking Tandy and Commodore and Apple you probably arent into the mainframe stuff . . . Truce? You give up jumping on my posts (remember the First Amendment) and I will stop jumping on your answers.

No. I served in the US Army as a broadcast engineer while you were looking for willing boyfreinds. If you're looking for gay sex, you'll have to look elsewere. -- Service to my country?

If I am wrong please tell me - picking on the handicapped in not my idea of fun. Real cute. I was awarded the M.O.S. of Broadcast Engineer as a civilian acquired skill, which meant that i didn't have to go to a three year electronics school at Ft. Monmoth, NJ. I had never worked at a station, yet I had the highest score on record for that MOS at Ft. Knox. I recieved a letter of commendation for my work at Ft. Greely, from the USARAL commanding general of the three Army bases in Alaska at the time. I was also promoted to E4 at 18 months time in service. I received my honorable discharge from the US military, and owned my own business for over a decade. Later I built communications equipment for NASA, NOAA, the European Space Agency. What have you done, other than do your best to be a pain to everyone one the sci.electronics newsgroups? My disabilities are physical. I have had health issues all my life, but until a few years ago I got up and worked hard, every day. Now, I can barely walk, and my Diabetes and high blood pressure is slowly taking my eyesight. I have severe swellings in my legs most days, and I walk with a cane, after falling too many times. I have nerve damage in my hands, and Carpal tunnel problems where I loose all feeling in my hands. At my last job I hand soldered 288 pin ICs under a stereo microscope. These were for DSP based dual divesrity telemetry recieveing systems in the$80,000 range.

I have never had any problem making friends, so there goes your
"socially challenged" theory.

I am sure you heard the expression one man's junk is another man's treasure,
and understand what it means (I hope).

Junk? Hell, I have well over 2000 square feet of floor space filled
to the rafters with surplus electronics, but I don't spam people to get
rid of it. It is what is left of a 40 year collection.

I made a very difficult decision a few days ago that it is time to
start thinning everything out that I don't need, before it all ends up
at the landfill. Some is being given away, some sold, some scrapped,
and the rest is going to be donated to a local program where they use
scrap circuit boards to teach people to solder so they can try to get
assembly jobs at a local defense plant. I could probably sell lots of
junk on ebay but I don't even have, or want an account.

Substitute spam for junk (barely edible rations) and lunch for treasure
(warm delightful meal) and you get the idea.

Yes, it was another twisted attempt of yours to skate around the
accepted rules. I have worked under strict rules all my life. Miltary,
at defense plants with gun carrying guards on patrol, and under ISO 9001
BS.

One mans spam/junk/spam posts are another mans lunch / treasure / great
newsgroup finds.

Now if you cant understand that analogy, I guess its time for me to stop
picking on you since you obviously are not equipped to argue properly.

I understand your self serving attempts at analogies, very well. I
also understand sociopaths who feel that anything they do is ok, as long
as they get away with it. I had one for a neighbor who stole every cent
his mother had, then managed to sell her house out from under her.

I argue much better, face to face. Like the kid who tried to take
away my cane to impress his little punk friends. Before he knew what
was happening, I had his arm twisted behind his back, politely asking
him to apologize, so I could let him go before his arm went completely
numb. It was amazing. From then on, he was very polite, would open
doors and had manners when he spoke to me. He even apologized again, a
few months later.

Are you another faggot like Mark, that can't find a woman to tolerate
him long enough for normal sex? Mark has already admitted that he likes
men to get him off.

Upset? I'm laughing my ass off. ;-) This is better than anything on
TV, but if I hear someone screeching "White Christmas" one more time,
the radio is going out the door. Don't get me wrong, I love most
Christmas music, but some of it is horrid. It has about the same effect
of a flickering fluorescent lamp, and triggers a splitting headache.

Merry Christmas, Matt!

THIS much attention has to be pretty valuable!
