As a youth, I was involved in
Tube Tv’s repair – I started poking around in the family Tele at a very young age, and eventually started working at a radio and TV repair shop. I was more interested in the glowing parts in the back of the TV than the shows on the front. I taught myself basic TV repair because of this interest.
When I worked in the TV repair shop I was shown a room full of broken old TVs and the owner challenged me to see if I could repair any of them. I was able to get a good portion of them going and he offered me a job. Apparently it was some kind of test.
Radio repair came later as I worked on more and more devices in the TV shop
I was introduced to solid state TVs as worked on them in the late 80’s and early 90’s
Other miscellaneous electronics repair
When Windows 3.1 came out, I began managing servers, and before Windows, I managed early networks using Novell networking software and KIX32. I also worked with windows NT servers and networks. In one application, my job was to consolidate the NT and windows 3.11 machines so they were uniform, as they would remotely boot from server images.
My main job was to manage all of these machines from the server down. I was able to manage this entire site using file manager. Later, I integrated windows 95 computers into this system and began using LINUX as well. I worked with a fire damage computer recovery company – recovering digital information from fire damaged computers and hard drives. The oddest recovery was from a PDP minicomputer at a lab fire.
I Fly gliders for relaxation in my leisure time – In my mid-life I started flying them, about 20 years ago. I flew as a kid which sparked my interest and always wanted to fly after that.
My first flights were in 1998. I had worked 54 weeks in a row and needed a break, so took time off, and on holiday I obtained a solo glider license.
Computer electronics was a hobby that became part of the day job and is now pursued for profit.
