    Feel free to ask me stuff and when I remember to visit TAZ, I might actually answer it ;)

    A bit about me? Been running forums since I was 12 years old (that was 22 years ago). I remember BBS. I remember dialup. I remember one song download taking days. I am now more of a YouTuber than a forum owner but I still run two forums. My largest forum had 10,000+ members and over 100K posts but due to my own stupid mistakes, I had to kill it. I am the former owner of Another Admin Forum which gave TAZ quite a few posts once I transferred it to The Sandman. I'm better known for getting under Lisa's skin by calling her Lisapoo. I work in QA management and have two master degrees, one is an MBA, the other is Homeland Security.

    Feel free to ask me whatever you want, I'll bite :D

    Do you use the skills from either of your Master degrees for your current role?

    Well, almost 34 years ago this man and woman had a baby and they named him Shawn Gossman ;)

    The MBA I do. I do a lot of business stuff in association with quality. I was hired for my position because of my education.

    Because...

    Good. Not married and no kids, don't want to be married or ever have kids, either :) It's for some people, not for me!

    You like it!

    Do you mean how many posts have I posted on all forums in total?

    If so, that is like asking where the end of space is. LOL.

    If I were to guess, I'd say close to a million. Maybe even more :eek:

    I've been posting on forums since I was 12 or 13. Oh wow... I can honestly say, that was over 20 years ago!!! OMG I'm old!!!!

    LOL, I'm answering this a year later (that is funny!)

    No I do not chase storms anymore. I witnessed a significant tornado out west and got pretty good video footage. A big-time American national news network (will not name it) was going to purchase 5 minutes of footage from me for $1,000. Then they backed out when the town that got hit reported no deaths. They told me that a tornado hitting a town and not killing anyone, that news doesn't sell. That was the initial start that put a bad taste in my mouth of national news media - I've called them fake news long before Trump did because they're in it for the money, not for us...unless we pay them. Then I saw a lot of cell phone chasers getting into it and just doing it to look good and be on the news. Finally, chasers started dying, never heard of before. Too dangerous. I still chase locally sometimes but rarely film.

    As for the beard, I keep a five o'clock shadow. Too much beard is way too hot and gray hairs really start to show...I'm getting old.
