About Me

Hi, my name is Bruce.  I have worked with a single IT company (Office Equipment Company) for 20 years now.  While I love computers, I find the job can really beat the passion out of me.  The blog helps somewhat, especially when I get enthusiastic about posting.

I use a 2015 model 15" MacBook Pro as my only computer.  I have a 10" iPad Pro, an iPhone 6s, and an Apple Watch, so you could say I'm hooked in.  I work with Windows workstations and servers, as well as Linux machines, constantly, so I know my way around them really well.  I actually like Windows 10, not that I would ever replace my beloved Apple.

This is a WordPress site, using the Hueman theme.  It's running on my own virtual build Ubuntu 16.04 linux system, hosted on Digital Ocean.  In addition to the Apache services, I also run my own mail server from the server, based on Postfix and Dovecot.

Beyond computers, I have my lovely wife and two grown but terrific kids.  I love photography, though I am a true neophyte, still even learning how to use all the buttons on my Nikon D7200.  I love to travel, whether across the country or around the county, it doesn't matter.  My favorite place is Cannon Beach, Oregon and I would live there if I could.

Just Me
