5. In college I used to live in the computer labs, almost literally.

That was in the later 'seventies and early 'eighties. Having built my own computers using 1802 processors, working with BSD was magic!

Now I'm a Linux guy. An easy way to learn Linux, if you haven't gone there yet, is on an inexpensive Raspberry Pi.

I'm on the 'spectrum somewhere, with a side order of OCD. That's occasionally been useful in my life. I can focus on certain things. At times it's also been a pain. It took me nine years to graduate from college.

Probably unrelated to that, I've also got diagnosis of PTSD and major depressive disorder. Meds can be helpful.
