I had put many years in the medical field (around 30) and retired wanting to start my own business instead of clocking some else's card. I did this some 20+ years ago and am still the proud owner of a construction company. In the beginning, I started out pushing dirt therefore the nickname I bare now. Now I am fixing to retire from this and begin yet another (career, lol) of going from a part-time farmer to a full-time farmer (sheep). I still do a little programming on the side, but it is getting less and less. As you might have guessed if you have helped me out on the other forums, I am in the process of creating a program to keep up with the farm and the animals, etc. using Access. In the past I have always used programming languages not databases. Therefore, I am constantly asking stupid questions in my quest. It also helps keep my brain churning in the right direction. At my age that is a good thing!, I think?
Have a good day.
Ah, that makes sense (the name). It's not a connotation I've seen before, but it's logical.
If you like sci-fi at all, you'd probably like the movie. It's pretty low-key overall, and more about story than flash, and the movie pretty much defined the cyberpunk look. The book, on the other hand (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?) didn't really impress me much. IMO, it's the rare case of the movie being better than the book.
Yeah, I've seen your posts about your project. You tend to post your questions after I've stopped checking AWF for the day (what freaking hours do you keep?!?), so they're always answered before I see them. Our...differences...aside, I'd have jumped in to help because that's what I'm primarily here to do, but the rest of the crew has been on it.
And yes - the best way to fight off age-related mental deterioration (for lack of a better term) is to keep your mind active and challenged. I kept trying to get my dad to do more than watch TV all day in part because I could see his memory starting to go over the two years I helped him before his death.
