Humboldt county! I had to give up on slackware. It's beyond my ability right now. I have been working on learning more since then, though. It's likely I'll have to wait myself, until I retire... whenever that comes! hahaha My main computer-related projects nowadays revolve around programming an Ard...

Just from reading your title...
I was going to reply, "Once you are diagnosed as an adult... your childhood is over!"
OH... wait... I just did!

...So yesterday I installed Slackware on the laptop, because I figure that, like many other things, in order to really learn something I need to be immersed in it and have no other real options but to sink or swim... . This sounded familiar, so I went and looked it up. Sounds interesting. Not sure ...

I've been thinking about writing a book on how to apply for jobs, how to interview for jobs.... considering I've done it so many times in my life successfully! . Certainly there were some jobs that hired any warm body that walked in! Most of them though, I had to fill out the application and do an i...

I wish I had your brain. I moved from a small rural town of 300 people to a slightly larger rural/cafe town of 1000 people. Every time I go for a walk, I look around and see nothing but one month of cherry picking work each year. Apart from that, a total blank. I think I'll reread your posts a coup...

My most interesting was working as a bookkeeper for a sheep farm. Did you have to visit the farm much? My favorites were tutoring, working in a pet store, and working in an educational toy store. My least favorite was telemarketing. I like teaching. When I became the Perceptual Motor Instructor (no...

Now time to start your own franchise, travel around the world and someone will put a list of those jobs on a wall... :wink: What's next for you? Interesting about the Colonel. Counting buttons... literally? Would drive me bonkers! But then... my last 2 medical jobs were part of the 4 I got fired fr...

While discussing work related topics, I have had people stop me and ask, "Just how many jobs HAVE you had?". . Well.... here's a list of pretty much all the jobs I've had in my lifetime... so far! I may not have exactly listed every one... but I'm pretty sure I'm damn close ;) . Bear in mi...

I'll finish off the last of these delicious lemon drop cakey things before I move on... if no one wants any? . ummmm... anyone else here? :-P . Okay.. I'm not seriously ignoring you! ;) . How about y...

Haha... I started with Fortran back in High School and found it fun and pretty simple. But then... it wasn't a full blown programming course, and we just wrote short code and printed out pictures. . Like you, I've been flipping around several different programming languages and haven't moved very fa...

I don't have a service dog. My experience with them has been mostly through bus driving and riders with them. . Just wanted to mention some things I think you'd probably come across anyway, but perhaps not. . For moving around in the world with a service animal, it's important to understand the dist...

WELL... pat yourself on the back buddy for being the BEST! The best at demeaning yourself and over-exaggerating your inability! . I mean... you were able to come on to WP and make the post. You obviously don't fail at everything! . I've done this to myself for the first (hopefully) half of my life. ...

I voted yes with the first option, although like someone else posted, it's not like I suspect everyone else must also... it was just what I felt was the closest answer to mine. . I also have an actual voice speaking all my thoughts and reading outloud what I'm reading from an external source. . I ha...

I wonder if OpenSCAD is more autistic friendly than trying to draw with a mouse, which is something I've never really got on with.... OpenSCAD is my first successful attempt at drawing the modern way! I've tried various CAD software, usually losing interest. I really need to learn something like Li...
