Sobre mimProfile art complements of www.fromoldbooks.org

Updated March 2, 2021

I was a computer programmer, web developer, etc. (my profession had many names over the years) for 37 years in the Hospital industry and retired in April of 2019.

I am one of those people who love books for the sake of the book. It engages most of the human senses. Of course I enjoy reading them too. For the most part I collect them because they would be interesting to read someday. I realize that I will never read all of them. Many people don't think of books as a collectible hobby - only utilitarian. I've seen collections of hundreds of dolls for instance that just sit to be looked at or touched. That seems to be acceptable. Why not books too?

I like all kinds of hardcover books, especially older books that have inscriptions in them. It gives me a thrill to think I am holding a book that someone gave as a gift in 1889! It makes me wonder how many hands have held this book?

I really enjoy quality made books. On standard books, I generally do not like dust jackets. Naturally they are there as a marketing tool to capture your attention and I do like some of the art work. I have to keep them though since for some reason they are a "prized" part of the book. I think it strange that the dust jacket makes all the difference in the value of a book (standard books), not the quality of the construction.

Just the opposite of quality books, I also, for some odd reason LOVE well used mass media paperback books that you find in many used book stores.

For ebooks, I have an older Kindle, Nook and Kobo eReaders. I will also use an Android tablet sometimes to read ebooks.

A Favorite Quote

"Writing - the art of communicating thoughts to the mind, through the eye - is the great invention of the world. Great in the astonishing range of analysis and combination which necessarily underlies the most crude and general conception of it - great, very great in enabling us to converse with the dead, the absent, and the unborn, at all distances of time and space."

--Abraham Lincoln, Lecture on Discoveries and Inventions, Feb 11,1859

Other Interests

I LOVE Classical music and have many CDs, vinyl records and a growing collection of FLAC and MP3 files. Along with that I have a pretty good stereo system. I also cross stitch, knit and crochet. From time to time I go camping/traveling in my little 13 foot Scamp camper.

I run the Linux (Arch Linux) operating system on my desktop, home server and laptops. I have my music collection cataloged in a self-created web application I call MusicCat which I am always tinkering with. It is built with NodeJS, VueJS and other javascript libraries. The back-end database is CouchDB.
