Born in Madison WI US, lived there until age 46, grew up in Ashland WI US, current home.
Always wanted a nickname, gifted one (Gumpa) by the grandson, Sebastian.
Fixed cameras for 25 years, monkeying with computers since 1981, a Timex Sinclair.
Between 2002 and 2006 I tried to establish a computer recycling presence
here in Ashland. You can read that story at http://longrun.zwiki.org/TheLongrunStory.
It is a Zwiki, http://zwiki.org, by Simon Michael http://joyful.com. The Longrun wiki
has been schlepped from host to host since 2002, maintaining compatibility all along.
I wish all wikis were Zwiki.
The wiki holds quite a few pages http://longrun.zwiki.org/HomePage/contents
I've been fortunate enough to have a gallery for my photographs at http://pastpeak.com.
The archive of all Gumpagraphs is at http://www.pastpeak.com/archives/gumpagraphs/index.htm
(Caution: BIG page)
I've been doing a bit of blogging at http://gumpablog.blogspot.com.
I've heard that it's possible to navigate these infowaters with LESS than 25
years at a camera repair bench. I'm not about to try, that's for sure.
