Joined 12 years ago from Edgeworth,NSW, Australia.
My name is Geoff Masters, my Geppy nickname came from my daughter when she was learning to talk. Geppy was her version of Geoff, then her elder brother made sure it stuck to me.
For the last 12 years I have relied on my computer as a tool to occupy my time. As a learning experience and to finally get on with my genealogy interests.
A big interest that has sprung up because of my laptop is the Facsioscapularhumeral Society. This was started by a group of people in America, but now has members around the world.
This is a computer accessable group that allows all these people to share thoughts, ideas and treatment in all things that connect us to this branch of Muscular Dystrophy. We also offer advice in regard to the pitfalls to avoid when the need arises for equipment like wheelchairs and hoists.
My first computer was a throw away. Friends of ours knew of someone that was buying a new computer and beause of my circumstances they offered the old one to me..What a great learning tool that machine was.
Once I could work my way around that old computer I had a technician build one for me. That was when Windows had '98 running, now I;'m up to Windows 7, I think I have to start over again. I wish they had just tweaked XP instead of going to vista & 7.
If you are wondering why I have those 3 penguins in my photo. It's because I am a real bird fancier & when I found this I could not get over how great these 3 looked. They are so clean xand majestic looking I though they deserved to be shown off.
