Hey all who decided to take the time to click the header and just... see what this XDA Newbie is all about. lol
Well, the long and the short of it all is, i stumbled across this site while tinkering around with a Fire 7 HD i believe. Watched a video or two, downloaded the toolkit from this site, and I've been tinkering and playing around on it since. Too much fun. Before i get the "Skript Kiddie" label, I despise that term, and actual Skript Kiddies, if you're learning to become better? Ok, i get playing around a little for a little while, but then educate yourself and become proficient.. Don't just live out your days as a script kiddie and think you're accomplishing anything of note... I've tinkered and built PC's, laptops, desktops, (yes i know what PC stands for, lol), pretty much my entire adult life, not diving deep enough to really make anything of it, but enough so where back in 2006 out of highschool, i basically had a mini sever farm in my living room, built from old parts the schools either broken or trashed, and anywhere i could pick up any used PC's for little to nothing. Fast forward to mid to late 2010, my then GF, now wife, pushed me to get my GED and attend college, to which i did and majored in auto mechanics, studied to achieve masters mechanics status but late 2011 i was driving home late/early morning and ended up spinning out from a faulty right rear second hand strut tower mount on the right rear of a 97 subaru lagacy that had the boxer engine in it, and 8 months of steady work done. Went around a curve close to home and the strut shot through the top mount, right rear dropped on the tire causing a skid, jumo a covered pipe completing a 180, and htting a tree square in the middle of the trunk at approx 65mph. Severe head trauma, broke my orbital bone, left clavical, all of my ribs, cracked skull, and 2 fractured, one broken, and 2 crushed vertebrea, lacerated liver, deflated and punctured both lungs and lacerated my pancreas... Went out the back glass of the car, and 20 feet on the other side of the road in the ditch.. The people that rescued me, and operated on me i owe the air i breathe, and the sports medicine specialist i owe my ability to do all else and function like a normal adult for the most part. 2 18 1/2" Silicone rods down either side of my upper dorsal spine, 12 titanium blocks, 6 straps and 32 screws all jiust on my spine between my shoulders, and 12 1" blocks on my clavical with 2 screws each... Went in the ER 260lbs at 6' 4"s tall solid big guy, came out 3 months later and medically induced coma, 6' even and 141lbs soaking wet. Fast forward 9 yrs, came across some online courses and jumoed back into computers hard, went through a 10 month program through the My Computer Career folks and graduated a ITCSE October of 2020, and attempting to earn gainful employment close to home at the new microsoft facility that has been up and running and under construction for the last 10 yrs or so, so going down a more practical route. and have been workin for myself and been trying to start my own business of "Mobile IT Troubleshooting, repair, replace & installation. What makes me different, is I'll beat the competition. I'll beat them there, and in price. Give me a call, and I'll come to you." Yeah, corny, i know, but it's a start and im loving it so far... Just starting out, but through networking, trial and error, and with each disability check, purchasing the specialized tools needed for certain jobs, I'll get to where i want to be soon enough. Thanks to any who actually read this long winded intro, and hope that im able to learn a lot from here, and to meet and correspond with the best and brightest.. Thanks again,
