Okay, given the name, and the breed, I have to ask ... Does this have anything to do with (Jerry Reed) Snowman's dog in Smokey and the Bandit? To this day - Hang on to your ass Fred... - is one of my all-time favorite movie lines.

Believe it or not, it was not brought about by Smokey and the bandit. Great movie, by the way.


I'm a ham radio operator and a day before arranging to pick up Fred I in July of1997, I went on the air with my gang and asked for suggestions for a name for my soon to be Basset Hound. Someone suggested I name it after one of the senior members of the group who just happened to be named Fred.

The rest is history.

By the way, that picture of Fred I was taken in a 1997 Toyota RAV4 which I bought especially for him because of the room behind the back seats. I still drive that 18 year old car and all the Freds have ridden back there.

Fred II went to heaven on May 7th.

Went searching for Fred III and found him on June  4th. It was love at first sight.

I ran the free version for quite a while and was very impressed with it.

Now I am running the Firewall Pro version on 5 of my computers.

Problem is I have licenses for 6. Please don't let me build another computer. Wink

I ordered the parts for my latest and maybe last computer on May 21, 2012.

i5, SSD, 1G video card, 8G Corsair memory Win 7 Pro 64 bit.

Bought all the parts and OS from Newegg and it cost a bundle.

That's gonna be it for a while.

Most of the time I use the Start button to stop the computer.

Just did that for the first time in years.

Should always do it. smiley

Thanks for the reminder.

Hi there. My name is Joe and I live in Ojai, Southern California. I am 78 years old and have been retired almost 19 years.

I was born in Norwalk, CT and left home after High School to join the Air Force. Served for 4 years, a good portion of which was spent in what was called French Morocco. The end of my brief career was spent in Washington D.C.

After the Air Force I went to college and then on to four different semiconductor companies.

In 1960, I hopped in my car and drove to Southern California to work at another semiconductor company.

I married a young lady by the name of Karen in 1964 and we had a son, Joe Junior.

In 1977, I resigned my job and bought a retail electronics store here in Ojai. Sold the business in 1986.

Karen died of cancer in 1988. She was 46.

After that, I took the position of Purchasing Manager and head flunky for a local golf bag business. Yearly sales were 13 million. I hated this place almost from the day I took the job but I was 55 years old and try to find a job at 55. I resigned (retired) on September 3, 1993 - one day short of 4 years and 1 month at the place.

I must have had some skill because two other companies asked me to consult for them which I did (of course).

Then after that I really retired and have lived here alone since then.

In my retail electronics store we did sell computers but I knew very little about them. Anyway, I bought  my first Windows 3.1 computer in November of 1995. It had all of 16 Megs of memory and cost US $1700.

Since then, I have built several computers and have 5 desktops in use right now. I need 5 desktops like I need a hole in my head. Maybe I do. Grin

My latest build was my first REAL computer - Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, i5, 8G of memory, SSD. beautiful machine and cost a lot of money. I hope I live long enough to get some use out of it.

That's about it.

I think some of you have seen my Basset Hound buddy, Fred. He is good company but is spoiled rotten. I have no idea who did that to him.
