Default Meet and Greet- welcome to Net54baseball

I figure it's about time for a meet and greet thread. With these, almost every time, they help someone out for some reason or another. Especially because you can see what folks interests are, where they are from, and so forth. Also, as previously stated, we have a lot of new members so it's nice to let them share some details if they would like to. In true moderator fashion I will go first. I will put out a small list for info but anyone can put anything they want to. best regards

3. Day job- technology sales for the 3rd largest reseller in the US *(enterprise reseller if any of you techy guys need a great guy to buy your Cisco, HP, MS, me, I need sales )

4. Location- Lucas, Texas (a few miles north of Dallas, it's a bit country)

5. Collecting interest- mainly a 20th century type collector, pre-1950 (no kidding)
