Rich here, brand new to Tom's Guide forums, BUT fan of the website for much longer. As they say in talk radio "first time caller, long time listener!" lol I'm also a forums vet, going WAY back to dialing up bulletin board systems. Kind of a ringer also as a forum's team member (Q&A Team Leader) at Future's Mobile Nations websites, such as iMore, Android Central, etc.
It's SO nice to have the uniform OFF here! lol I do have decent PC (and some Mac) knowledge as I am an IT guy for one of my local government offices. I will try to answer questions where I can. Look forward to getting to know you all.
New here. I started my life in tech as a mainframe hardware tech in the Air Force, working in the SAGE Air Defense system. When I left the AF I kicked around for a while and ended up taking several positions in the nascent personal computer industry. Mostly, I was involved in providing computer manufacturer's with operating systems and OS components. Towards the end of my career I drifted into the ebook industry, founding a couple of the earliest ebook companies, before retiring a few years ago.
Now, I mostly play around with Smart Home stuff and streaming video and cord cutting systems.
