At the risk of repeating myself, I am about to repeat myself. Hello from my new-old Mastodon home. I was once @formerlyquincy on this same instance back in 2017, then @firstname.lastname@example.org until a couple days ago. I had an introduction there, but now that I'm settled back here, I go again here:
I have been in the IT support world for around 25 years, most of which were for front-end, customer-facing support in two Midwestern states. Yep, this means I am older than the average tooter. Over the last 2-3 years, I've added a substantial amount of back-end support, so I'm knowledgeable enough to be dangerous in Active Directory and ConfigManager. It is likely that Microsoft 365 services will soon follow along, and even though I'm not a manager or supervisor, I'm unofficially acting in that capacity. It's a bit annoying to be both two things and neither of them at the same time, but that seems to be my path-as-not-a-path journey.
Outside of work, I have a life! I enjoy photography, travel, music, podcasts, birdwatching, wines and beers, far too much what-if speculation like alternate histories or imaginary maps/flags, various cult-ish shows (MST3K, Doctor Who, etc.), astronomy, and I can even talk sportsball.
The above are some of my interests, but not all. I distract far too easily, so some interests are more shallow than others.

I put a roll of film in my camera 6 months ago or so, and shot half of it. I forgot where. I assumed (you know what happens…) that it was Velvia 100, and proceeded to shoot the rest of the roll like that this weekend. I just popped the camera to discover it was Kodak tri-x pan, so it will be interesting to see how my compositions based on color work out in black and white. For varying definitions of “interesting.”
Getting in my Buddhist meditation and a little hard rock on this morning’s commute.
