I'm a former member of the Brotherhood of the Trustworthy Beard. My BotTB membership was terminated when I shaved it off. I'm lobbying for reinstatement, but it may take a few months.
I used to have a cat named Pierre who was, on occasion, very bad. I have used that or some variant as an online user name on various BBS's and later, the Internets, for many years. My real name is Mark, but I'll answer to Pierre if you'd like.
I'm a techie freak, but I also like old stuff. I have a couple of old cars which I like to drive. I'm quiet, but I can also talk a lot when I get into the mood.
I'm also working at getting thinner and into better shape, and oddly enough, I'm making some progress at it. I just took retirement from my job and I'm doing a little free-lance work. I'm looking for another job, but not very hard. This is the best vacation ever!
I went to France this summer and had a great time sampling a lot of great food. And wine, although I'm mostly a beer drinker.
Reading, I do a lot, but less than I used to do. Recently enjoyed Robocopalypse by Daniel Wilson and The Greater Journey by David McCullough. I really like reading books on my iPad, but hate that Apple charges almost the same price as a paper book. Dammit, Apple, you can share real books.
*I've actually been to three live JoCo shows in Austin, which is all of them.
