The Rap On Me (Who Is mts1098)

This Is My Man Cave

When I found HubPages, as I pined and stumbled in the Google search engine, I did not know what to expect from this on-line writing website. At present, with many hubs published and many forum posts behind me, I am still enjoying the relaxation of writing. Nonetheless, I thought it is time to reveal more of the person I am and why I write. In computer networking there exists a look up tool called whois. This particular utility will identify an Internet domain by simply specifying the fully qualified domain name (i.e. If you use this process to find out who mts1098 is, you will not find anything special. That is why I am here to tell you a bit about myself so you can understand the person behind the words.

My avatar pictures reflect my personality and some of the things I enjoy in my life (my Computer Company, my Jeep Wrangler, my Man Cave, Friday night pizza - just to name a few). My id reflects my computer company name plus the two digit month and two digit year we incorporated our technology consulting company.

I believe in enjoying life, looking at the positive things, that there is a time and place for everything. In my world actions speak louder than words, doing what you are passionate about is a key to happiness and and grilling or smoking all year (my grill and smoker are in my garage converted to a Man Cave) is a must.

This Is My Story on Me, by Me

Born in New Jersey in 1963, Asbury Park was the place for me

I grew up by the beach in with a lake near by, I was not good at running but I gave it a try

My mother was Greek my father was not, I like the beach but it gets too hot

Baseball and Football are sports I played in youth, Ice Hockey is the real sport if you must know the truth

I went to college and earned a degree, I met my wife at a local computer company

We lived in a town called Shark River Hills, we moved to Pennsylvania for decades of thrills

We have children now all grown, they all have families and are not all alone

I like movies directed by Q. Tarantino and genre Sci-Fi), I am always honest and never lie

I like music - usually on a Kindle or PSP, (Billy Joel, Joss Stone and Rihanna) just to name three

I drive a Jeep Wrangler that much is true, I like the Mustang convertible in any shade of blue

Friday pizza dinner is always a must, I am not religious but in God I trust

Dominick's is my favorite place to dine, they serve craft beers on draft and a variety of red wine

I have been here now for a few years, I like to cook outside all year and enjoy a few beers

I own a computer company 20 years alive, service, solutions and support are the key to survive

The glass, for me, is always half full, I cannot tell if my Internet traffic is a push or a pull

So now I must go to read and write, I am sometimes sarcastic and am not always polite

thank you for reading and commenting, follower or fan, I will play in the forums and try not to get banned

Cheers! OPA!

YouTube - Rapture By Blondie - Lyrics


While the above Rapture is a high level summary of my path in life, it is not an indication of the type of person I am. I am an even tempered guy who likes to have fun and is very spontaneous. I grew up at the Jersey shore and now live near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I have worked in Information Technology most of my life and it all started by connecting the Atari game of Pong to the family television set way back in the teenage years.

I do like most of the on-line social networking stuff although I am not convinced this type of interaction is a long term solution for communication in society. Nonetheless, I will take my part in social networking to read, write and meet as many people as I can.

When I am online you may see my red left hand print or my 4x4 Jeep tracks all over the Internet. When I am offline you can find me in my Jeep or the Man Cave (converted from our garage) - especially during NFL football or NHL hockey seasons.

Life is short so think positive, do not judge me based on my words - judge me on my actions, work in a passion.

Cheers and OPA!

      Now that's hot - a video with Blondie in it (Deborah Harry) .....well my friend I love your spunk and funk and nerve and verve and your sensational wit and sense of humor. That makes you a true original in Epi-man's book. I guess it's that old saying - it takes one to know one.

      So nice to meet you , my talented and esteemed hub colleague and actually I live just across the lake (roughly 47 miles) at lake erie time ontario canada 7:19am and across from me is Erie, Penn.

      Remember the Broad street bullies with Fred Shero, Bernie Parent, and Dave Schultz? Now those were the days and the greatest hockey movie of all time - the original Slapshot. lol And of course the legendary Steelers and Pirates of the 70's

      You are officially the second tech guy I know with a jeep. And you may be the second coolest person I know (me being first) that is left handed. I don't know anybody personally who is. My second grade teacher tried to change me to right handed until my mom found out- she was mad.

      Your man cave definitely sounds like a man cave. My woman cave has a craft table for my daughter and I that currently doesn't have one free square inch.

      Good to get to know you.

      epigramman - I have seen Blondie in concert a long time ago but it does not compare to meeting some of the Broad Street Bullies during a Stanley Cup display. Present for autograph signing were Bill Clement, Bob Kelly and Brain Propp and it was a thrill. I hope all is well...cheers

      Hello izettl - Wow a left handed woman is something I do no run into every day. Add cool to that and you have a rare find. I also had problems with teachers that tried to make me do things right handed but sitting at the desk with the writing space on the right was enough for me and so I stayed left handed. I think you should do a hub on the left handed woman cave - I grill in the man cave all year - cheers and good to get to know you as well...
