Bio

Retired 83 year old self-taught Marine helo pilot dragooned into serving as Webmaster for our small veterans organization. Know enough to be dangerous by not truly competent. Long-time PC user, all the way back to DOS and to the naked C:\ prompt. Wrote a lot of FORTRAN back in the 80s. Built a fairly complex website from scratch with just HTML and brute stubbornness. Nothing modern, though; PHP, SQL, CSS, JAVA, et al are beyond me and likely to remain so. Can’t seem to wrap my brain around object-oriented programming. Too old, I guess.

WordPress Origin Story

Webmaster passed away in 2014 and I foolishly agreed to give it shot.
